Primary Program

I have been in the Primary Pres. four different times and seem to be destined for a lifetime of it. I really do enjoy the Primary though and am very grateful for the example the children set. We just had our program today, and when it's all said and done I'm very relieved. But I must say, the kids do such a good job and the music we've learned this year is incredible. It's definitely worth all the hard work! I have a testimony of the Primary Program and believe it's necessary to help our kids learn and understand the gospel. What a great place to go every Sunday to witness all the sweet and sincere testimonies of these kids.

Okay, I have obviously let Jake watch too much "Dora". He has been coming to sleep with us in the middle of the night now, for about 2 months. It's hard enough to sleep when he's got his head and feet in our sides...but the talking in his sleep keeps me wide awake! Last night, Delon and I had the privilege of hearing almost an entire episode of Dora. Jake sat up in bed and said, "Swiper, no swiping. Swiper no swiping!...Oh, man!!" And then of course that was followed by hysterical laughter, all while he was completely asleep. Then, again, there were mumbled conversations about Dora and Tico. Wow, this kid needs to get out more!

Scrapaway Cabin

One of the many "Great" Rooms

Cute cottage-kitchen

Scrapaway gals

You get the idea! The last weekend of Sept. I was invited to go up to a little Scrapaway retreat. It was a few days to get away from everything at a "Better Homes and Garden-like" cabin in Heber. It's beautiful there, I wish I could get away there more often.
Most people who know me, know that I am not a big scrapbooker...but this was a perfect opportunity to get something done. I am so behind! And in the process I met a lot of really great people. I had heard how intense these weekends were and that they meant business...little did I know. Those girls would get up and scrap, eat breakfast, scrap, eat lunch and so on. ( A few of us needed to get out and run or take a walk). The body doesn't handle a sedentary lifestyle very well when you're eating like we were! The food we had there was one of the best things...I can still remember the stuffed french toast rolled in cornflakes and coconut, mmmm!
Anyway, it was definitely a good experience for me...and though it may sound cliche', I learned a lot about myself that weekend and had the privelege of learning a lot about all the other great people there. Thanks to my friend Kristen who invited me and put up with my scrapbook sarcasm!
