New Callings!

Larry and I were called as team teachers to the Valiant 11 and 12 classes in primary a few months ago. It has been a fun class to teach and I really enjoy the kids. I was also loving that it was something Larry and I could do together. Well, about a month ago they called Larry to be the new Scout Master and said that they were looking in to finding me a new team teacher. I was a little sad that we wouldn't be teaching together anymore, but excited for Larry to be in scouts. He loves scouts and I know he will do an amazing job. I am not too excited about all of his meetings on Sunday mornings cause we have church at nine and he is usually the one who gets up makes breakfast and gets the kids ready while I shower and get ready. I know I am a little spoiled, and I love it! He will also be gone to Scout camp for the weekend of the 24th celebrations in St. Johns :( I was hoping he would be there so we could go to the dance. I love dancing! The kids and I will still probably come and enjoy everything else. . . So, now for my new calling. About two weeks ago the bishop called me in, and I was hoping it was to tell me about my new teaching companion, Wrong! He called me in to ask if I would except a new calling to be the 1st counselor in the Primary Presidency. At first I thought he was kidding, but he said that they prayed about it and felt like it was where the Lord wanted me to be. How can you say no to that? Larry was full of grins the whole time. I even punched him while we were in there. He has always teased me about being called to the Primary or Relief Society presidency. I am so glad it is Primary! Today was my first day and I had to conduct. It wasn't so bad. I think it will help me grow spiritually and get me out of my comfort zone. If any of you have had this calling and have any helpful advice feel free to send it my way.

You will love it! Like I said in my blog, I have done this 1st counselor thing before. Thankfully I didn't have to do the primary program last time. I am sure I will this time though. BUT the lady who was just released gave me her book she had. It has the ENTIRE program written out with songs and all.

Anyway~~ You will do a fanstastic job! But call me anytime!

Hopefully I'll see yea around for the 24th!
