As I am sitting in the meeting, my friend asks, "Where's your husband?", and I said something to likes of he's probably in the clerks office or ran home to get something to eat, and I bet I even rolled my eyes.
After I did my part of the meeting, I went back to primary. There sitting in the back quieting rowdy children was my husband. Later he told me as soon as he heard that we were going to be short staffed he decided he wanted to support me in my calling and help out. HE IS AWESOME. I don't tell him this enough. While there is not a day that passes by that he doesn't tell me how beautiful I am, or how much he loves me. I love you too, honey.

We have the kids clear their plates. Every night I would look at Holly and say put it in the dishwasher. She would get up, take the seven steps into the kitchen and say, "Dishwasher or sink?". I started telling her that she needed to use her mind. A couple of weeks later she figured it out on her own and she proudly proclaimed, "Mommy, I losing my mind!". Just for fun we make her say it often.
Did you know that these are your glashes. On day Holly come up to me pointing to her eye lashes and said, "Mom, Jesus gave me my glashes!". I had her repeat herself so I could tell exactly what she said. Yes GLASHES .
And these are your armhits. One day when Holly was taking her shower I told her don't forget to wash your armpits and left the bathroom. When I came back to check on her she gave me the run down of everything she washed including her ARMHITS.

First he got perfect attendance which I think that was true, but who am I to argue. (He was the only one in his class, crazy).
Then he got an award for being above average in reading for his class. At the beginning of the year they tested all the students and then re-tested a little bit ago and he tested above average for his classmates.
I was so proud of him and he was so excited. Way to go Josh! My little bookworm.

Holly loves to dress-up and sometimes her outfits are strange and sometimes they are just perfect. She also likes to make up songs and dance. So here is a little ditty.
Oh and she is trying to get used to these heels. They clomp alot and I am surprised that she hasn't tripped yet.

For sharing time I am the one who did it. The kids did really well in participating and seemed interested. I am super proud of my senior primary. When I told them I was looking up a scripture in the Book of Mormon; they all got out there Book of Mormons and started looking it up too. I had more discussion with them and the scriptures, reading them and talking about the meaning of them. I felt like they were interested and not just sitting their with the glazed over look.
I had the opportunity to talk with all my teachers today and I just think that we have powerhouse teachers. They are really getting the kids involved with the lessons and encouraging them to not only bring their scriptures but to open them and read from them. I'm just really excited for this new year and the theme: I know the scriptures are true.
So a challenge, for everyone. Read your scriptures everyday. If the primary kids can do it so can you!
