Fall Pictures

This weekend we traveled up on the Grand Mesa to do some sight seeing and take the kids' pictures. It was so beautiful up there! We found a beautiful spot to take the pictures by some colorful leaves and bright red berries! They turned out quite well if I do say so myself! It was a fun trip. We had 2 people stop and ask us if we were looking at moose! Tony was quite disturbed-he couldn't believe people would think we would be out in the woods with our children running around if there was a moose close by. And then he told me some statistic (that I can't remember), but I think it was something like that more people get killed by wild moose (or is it meese!:)) than any other wild animal. Don't quote me on that-I guess I should have payed more attention!:)

Hard day!

So, it finally happened today in church. I was officially released from being Primary President! It was so hard when I was called (over 3 years ago) because I had never been in Primary and didn't know what I was doing! But it is sooooooo much harder saying goodbye! I never thought it would be this tough to be released-you know it's coming eventually, but I was not prepared to go. I did pretty good (in my assumption) until I walked into the Primary room after sacrament meeting! I lost it-I ended up running to the bathroom to try to pull myself together because I was supposed to be conducting! Well, I made it through-barely!:) I am very thankful that Heavenly Father had enough faith in me to trust me with his precious children and that I had the opportunity to serve them. I will miss being there tremendously! But on the bright side (most people give me a look of pity though) I did get a new calling! I will be in cub scouts! I'm really quite excited for this-I think I'm going to be over both the wolves and bears and Caleb will be turning 8 in March so I'll get to have him then too. Yeah!
