Fathers and Sons Campout – a Real Treat for Mom

Since I have 3 boys, when it is the Father and Sons Campout, it is a free night for mom.

The only thing that drives me crazy is it takes them way too long to get out of the house. They always take about an hour longer than anticipated to pack and leave. This time I was ready.  I hadn’t gotten s’more stuff, so I left the house to go buy them supplies while they finished packing up.

I also got some yummy treats for me for my girls night.  I could have invited some friends over, but they all have girls, so they are not free like me!

Now I have to decide,

  • read a book
  • watch a movie
  • blog
  • scrapbook

Hmmm, apparently blogging is not the right answer!


Testimony – I have one and I am so glad!

When I learned about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, it felt familiar, like I had heard it before.

It fit with my heart.

My testimony grew quickly and strongly.

My parents wouldn’t let me get baptized until I was 18, but I went to church and early morning seminary from 15 on.

I got baptized on my 18th birthday!

Primary Chorister

This is my calling.

Easiest Calling Ever!

NOT being Primary Chorister.  Relief Society Chorister was my easiest calling ever!

  • Pick out songs or teacher requests a song
  • Lead on Sunday
  • People pay attention and sing along.
  • Or more likely they ignore you but still sing along.
  • Pretty much no preparation and no stress
  • As I bonus I got to go to Relief Society, which I love.

Hardest Calling Ever?

I am now Primary Chorister.  Totally different animal.

  • LOTS of preparation.
  • People do NOT pay attention and I plan fun things!
  • Some boys don’t sing
  • Stressful
  • NO Relief Society or Sunday School

Great Resources

Seeing as I was never in Primary as a child, I don’t know a lot of songs.  So I really love these resources to help me plan fun activities.

I do mostly love this calling.

Though there are days I want to whack the 10 year old boys with a stick.  Maybe Lacrosse isn’t that bad of an idea after all?
