Weekend Update

Saturday was a good day! The kids and I stayed home and cleaned in the morning. I know what you're saying, "How does staying home and cleaning make a good day?" Well, it's the fact that my kids willingly did their chores when I asked them too and did a good job at them too. It was the best Anniversary gift for Clint and me. Thanks kids! Anyway, while we were home cleaning, Clint was with the boy scouts at Lowe's selling hot dogs to raise money for their scout camp this summer. He then came home at 2:00 so him and I could to the temple to witness one of our "sons" go through the temple for the first time in preparation for his mission. I say "son" because last year for youth conference we did a pioneer trek and Clint and I were asked to be a Ma and Pa over a group of kids and he was one of those kids. It was a nice session, ('course when is it ever not a nice session) and he was glad to have us there to support him. Anyway, after the temple, we came home, with pizza for the kids and babysitter, we changed our clothes then went to dinner at "The Cheesecake Factory which was delicious, then went to see "Iron Man 2", which was really good. All in all, I think we had a very Happy Anniversary. We've been married for 12 years and we're still so happy and love each other more than we did when we were married. We have learned so much from each other and continue to learn everyday.
Today, Sunday, has been a pretty good day. My primary class was good. (I teach the 11-12 year olds). They listened and participated pretty well. Most importantly, Dallin gave a talk in primary and did a really good job. He talked about tithing and shared a really good story about a little boy who had a hard time paying his tithing, but then finally paid it and felt good about it. Also, Abby gave the scripture and prayer in primary. I helped her and I could tell she was nervous, so I told her if she was brave enough to say her scripture and prayer that I had something special at home for her. She said o.k. When it was her turn, we walked up to the pulpit, she got right up to the microphone, saw all those faces looking at her and got a little stage fright. I ended up saying it for her, but when we got home she still got the
"key of courage" because she was brave enough to go up to the microphone. I guess I can't blame her for being nervous, because when I was about her age, I remember my mom giving my talk for me too. Anyway, she was so happy to get the key and I said, to her, maybe next time she will be able to talk into the microphone. She said, "yes." Then, Dallin got
"The key of Responsibility" he wore his around his wrist, because it would fit around his head.
because he took responsibility and prepared his own talk. He was happy to get it and they both get to wear them for the day. Now we're all home and enjoying each others company.
