The first of many to come...

**FYI... If you feel so inclined as to spend a ridiculous amount of time on my blog, I've been a bsy little momma. There are 12 new posts so like I said, if you feel up to it, check 'em out. You'll have to go back a few pages and stuff. Thanks.

Today was a pretty good day. For those of you wondering what my calling is, I got called as 2nd Counselor to the Primary Presidency. I have not been in any Primary calling ever and haven't been in Primary since I myself was in Primary as a child. So I'm sure you can imagine my shock when I got this calling. I feel very, very humbled but very excited and thankful to my Heavenly Father for trusting me with such a responsibility. I have several responsibilities in this calling but a main part of it is being over the Cub Scouts, in which I know NOTHING about. But I'm excited to learn and do my best. Today we had our first Presidency meeting as a whole new Presidency, the first of many to come, and I think it went really well. I feel like I learned a lot and have a better understanding of what it's all about. Baily had a bit of a rough start there at first with the other little kids that were there but by the end she was so mad that we had to leave. She told me they're her best friends. And as you can probably guess, today I spent a big majority of it catching up my blog. Hopefully I'm out of my blogging rut and now that I'm caught up I'll stay that way. I think I'm back to my blog addict self and things should be much better now;) I have a lot of work to do tomorrow because of time I lost today but I feel so much better now that I'm caught up with this. I was so wrapped up and determined about getting caught up that Baily took it upon herself to feed Joaquin for me...lol. He's not much of a fan of peas as you can tell. Oh well... Baily tried. She really is such a great sister and I'm so grateful for that. So I guess I better attempt to get a few hours of z's before my busy, busy day tomorrow. Thanks for all being so patient and checking in on me. Now hopefully I have time to catch up on all your fabulous blogs! And here's just some pics of my baby who turned 7 months yesterday... aaaahh! Time's flyin' by way too fast for my liking I tell you.

Congratulations! I've been 2nd Counselor for some time now. It is pretty fun. Cub Scouts is hard to learn but you'll get the hang of it.
