What a kid!
Third grade has been quite a test for Dallin. It has also been a test for his Mom and Dad. Well we're happy to say that he has done very well with his homework the last couple of weeks. In fact, I thought I heard him say to Calvin, "I'm just going to do it so it is done and I don't have to worry about it." "Wow!" Mom thought. He IS getting it. Hopefully, he can keep that up with his school work too, through out his whole school years.
On Sunday, we were in sacrament meeting and I, Mom, was looking at each of the kids. (You know, making sure they were behaving and all), I looked at Elsa, she was coloring, Abby was sitting on Dad's lap looking at a book, Calvin was coloring, and Dallin, well, Dallin was reading the Friend, and looking up scriptures. It was such a proud moment for me. "What a great kid." I thought. What a great example too. Dallin can be very trying at times, yet he has such a strong testimony already. He is such a good example to his brother and sisters, and his friends. What a kid!
