Life has definitely been busy, to say the least, since the girls got out of school. It seems like we have been going NONSTOP. Something going on EVERYDAY!
Not only does my hubby work, as a Marine, he is also now the 2nd Counselor in the Young Men’s Presidency AND The Scoutmaster! Then I am a full time mama and the 1st Counselor in the Young Women’s Presidency in our ward. So not only have we been busy with the day in and day out “stuff” of life, but then we have our church callings and responsibilities. But like my hubby said- it’s all been GOOD stuff! (which it has been)
Just a week and a half ago, my hubby and I had the opportunity to go with the youth in our ward to the Detroit, Michigan Temple. How amazing to be there with 26 youth... 17 young women and 9 young men. It was the 1st time I have been able to go with my daughters... It was Haylee and Sydney’s 1st time doing baptisms AND it was the 1st time Matthew has ever done a baptism period. My dad has been the one to baptize all three of the girls so far (my hubby has confirmed them all) so it was an amazing experience to see my hubby baptize both Haylee and Sydney. Along with 11 other youth. We did work for over 300 people. How amazing.

After the temple we went and INVADED Wendy’s for dinner. We basically filled the dining room. We had a great time visiting and just relaxing before making the 2 hour trek back home. Just before leaving I went to refill my drink. I was complimented by the staff at Wendy’s. They asked where we had come from. I was able to share with them a little about our church and hopefully planted a seed. They said that we were the BEST group they had ever had. They were excited we cleaned up after ourselves and they didn’t have too. What a great feeling. Who would have thought that 26 youth plus 10 adults...
