Journaling

The girls finally finished school this week on the 22nd. It feels like the summer is 1/2 gone already with them getting out so late! In other ways (weather-wise) it feels like summer has just begun. It's been SO rainy here for the past couple of months, we were worried that the sun would NEVER show up again.

Today is our 12th wedding anniversary.


June 26, 1998

We didn't have any plans because, until a couple of weeks ago, I was heavily involved in the 2010 Youth Dance Festival (A Firm Foundation). We went today with Will's family to watch the 2:00 performance. I can't imagine how anyone can logisitically coordinate nearly 2,000 12-18 year olds?! They pulled it off and had a complete BLAST! Sister Cook from the General Young Women's Presidency came and also a member of the Quorum of the Seventy, whose name I can't remember right now, but I'll try to find out.

For the very last number; ALL the youth came out onto the field to sing "How Firm A Foundation" and for the last verse, all the full-time missionaries (about 120) came marching out in 2 lines, holding white flags to join in. It was AMAZING! By far my favorite part of the whole thing!!


The missionaries are on either side of the group with the white flags.

Afterwards, Mary Lou took all of us to Wendy's for lunch/dinner. It's been a long day and I'm exhausted, but it was all worth it!

Elder Risenmay is his name. He came to our ward on Sunday, and poor Jared had to speak with him and the stake president! His topic was the dance festival and fellowshipping. By far my favorite part was the end. The dance to "I love to see the temple" was my FAVORITE. After being primary chorister and having done this song in my first primary program...I can't listen to it anymore w/out crying! big baby ;)
