Now that Adam has graduated it seems like we have less time to blog. Adam is trying to finish applying to graduate school and pick up more shifts at work. Katie is working and has started babysitting a little bit for another friend. Recently Katie has been working with Abby and her mom to plan a baby shower for Savanna. Savanna is Katie's older sister (The one that was Mary in the play) and will be having a baby girl in April... the very first grandchild on Katie's side of the family. During the planning session Abby began joking around and taunting Carolyn about something by saying, "What are you going to do about it old woman?" This is what Carolyn did:
The OLD WOMAN took the YOUNG WHIPPER SNAPPER to the ground in the blink of an eye! So funny!
In other news we are teaching the CTR 4's in primary. Sunday will be our third time teaching and we are getting less and less scared each time. The first Sunday we walked in all excited and none of the children wanted to sit by us! Then one little girl sat with a blanket over her head for half the time. We are proud to announce that last week she only had the blanket over her head for about a fourth of the time. We are making improvements! Also, did you know that cheetahs have really long tails to help them turn corners better? Was that a random thought? No, we learned that from one of our four year olds on our first Sunday.
Last but not least, we want to talk about miracles. We had a small miracle the other day and it might seem silly, but it meant a lot to us and reinforced to us that small and tender mercies happen all the time to show Heavenly Father's love for us. One day a few weeks ago our mail key went missing. The only mail key we have... the only way we have to access the bills and other mail that come to our little box... Try as we might, we could not find the key. We looked high and low, inside and outside, and in Adam's clothes (since he had the key last). It came to the point that the key could not be found and we were going to have to pay a fee to get a new key... which we really didn't want to do. We are saving our pennies for adoption. We went to our bedroom, knelt down, and said a prayer. The next day we found our key in... the washing machine! The washing machine of all places! How did it get there? We will never know, but it sure was an answer to prayer and a little miracle in our lives.
