So it is Stake Conference weekend. I know for some people it is a week off of church. I actually like Stake Conference. However, our stake does not broadcast to other buildings so it means you have to get their EARLY to get a seat and you will still be on the hard chairs in the back.
The thought of going early, by myself with 4 kids caused a little panic. Remember my last experience at Stake Conference? Plus, the potential sickness all around me stresses me out with the baby. Then what happens if I have to go out with Quinn. Could the 3 kids handle being left alone? I don't think so. How would we survive? Would Quinn get sick? I am anxious for the threat of RSV to be gone. A couple more weeks, I hope. Anyway, I decided that we wouldn't go. We would have primary at home.
Primary actually went quite well. We spent a little over an hour doing Sunday Stations. The kids really liked it. Their favorite part was doing fun activities on the computer. It is new feature on the Friend Magazine site. Check it out. It is the perfect Sunday computer solution. I also had them write letters to Kenyon about visiting the Draper Temple. We also watched Nephi and Laban (from the Liken the Scriptures series). It was a pretty good Sabbath day, I think.
My sisters came over for dinner and asked about church. The kids quickly responded that we didn't go to church. Shock! Kristine asked why and Elise said, "My mom couldn't handle it." Nice! Really? I didn't mean for them to get that message. But, I suppose it is true.
But, I am so sad that I missed out on the messages of Stake Conference. Anyone take notes?
I did get to attend the adult session on Saturday night. We were taught about self-reliance, repentance, and missionary work. Plenty for me to work on!
