What else is going on . . .
Besides birthdays and volleyball, this weekend was a busy one. Christa also had a district choir and orchestra concert, which was fun. She enjoyed participating with the kids from other schools, some of whom are her friends from the Math and Science Center. On Saturday there was a Regional Young Women's Conference, with Sister Mary Cook, 2nd counselor in the general YW presidency as the featured speaker. I was able to go for most of the day with Christa, and it was really uplifting. (I can't remember if I posted that I was recently called to work with the Beehives in our ward). On Thursday night this past week, Emma and Lexi had a Talent Show for their Primary Activity and Lexi played a cello-violin duet with her friend Ana and Emma showed some of her woodworking, which she likes to do with Ryan. Paisley climbed all the way up the stairs all by herself the other day. I was working on the computer downstairs and didn't even realize she was on the stairs, until I came out and couldn't find her where I had left her, and instead found her up in the playroom. I guess it's time to teach her to do down backwards. Today was the Children's Sacrament meeting program--always a wonderful Sunday. There was a bit of panic at the start of the meeting when the microphone wasn't working, but through some miracle it was working by the time the children were ready for their presentation. All of the children did so well. Anya, being in the youngest class, was right in the front, and I don't think she held still for more than 2 seconds in the entire hour. She was so wiggly. She sang and said her little part at the microphone without a single bit of hesitation, but I felt sorry for her friend Piper who was sitting next to her. At one point they just about got into a wrestling match right there on the stand. We all have colds and the baby and Anya haven't been sleeping too well. Maybe we can get to bed early tonight and be ready to start all the craziness again tomorrow.
