I had to go to church today though because it was the primary program, only the best sacrament meeting of the year. Gabby had a big part that she totally had memorized but was bawling and refusing to do in practice last week. I talked to her a lot about it this week and I even took her to the church and had her practice her talk in the microphone several times. Luckily I think the reward of a toy at family dollar was enough to make her decide to be brave. Gabby was the one that had to make that decision mind you. If she hadn't there is no way she would have done it. The cutest part was that Corbin held her hand and walked her up to the stand and when it was her turn to do her part he went over and grabbed her and walked her to the front. He is a sweetheart. Love him. Corbin did GREAT on his part too. He spoke very clearly which is not always the case. Gabby needed a little prompting from the leader but she mostly did it on her own. I was just so proud of her for being brave and doing it.
So my friend Katrina is back and all is right with the world. She came over after our kids went to bed and wrote in her journal while Scott and I went on a little date. We went to Home Depot. I really do love that store, so many possibilities. Anyway we looked at carpet samples for fun for our "some day" plans. Then we went to DQ and shared a burger and blizzard. It was so fun. So glad Katrina is back. She is always willing to come watch a movie while we escape for a while.
On Thursday I got to go with Corbin's class on a field trip. It was some FFA something or another. They had tractors and animals and things like that. I'm hoping that after Scott's schedule gets a little more figured out that I will be able to sneak away once a week and volunteer in Corbin's classroom. Fingers crossed.
|I left Ryan in the backyard with the girls and found him halfway up the ladder. Glad I grabbed him before he a) fell off or b) made it to the top. I may have another Corbin on my hands.|
|Ryan loves to eat dirt. For real loves it.|
