A new calling

*I've tried to link some of the 'mormon jargon' to definitions or explanations if you have NO IDEA what I'm talking about.

I've been called into the young women in our 'new' ward. A few weeks ago, our entire stake was reorganized- the boundaries for every ward in the stake changed (except one). There were some pretty significant changes to our ward that resulted in it being necessary to reorganize the young women, young men and primary presidencies plus two new counselors in the Relief Society presidency.
So...I'm the new secretary in young women's. I actually have quite a bit of experience working with the yw but I've never been the secretary. I've never been the secretary for anything. This is a fun new adventure. And how fun to start right at the beginning of summer. Right in time for dance festival, youth conference and girl's camp (three MAJOR activites).
Ironically, I've been watching Roy go to dance festival practice every week and been secretly glad it wasn't me. That was just during the regular weekly activity time. Now we are starting Saturday practice. yippee.
I don't mean to sound glum. I am really happy about this. I love love working with the yw. I am looking forward to doing the fun stuff. I think this is going to be a great opportunity.

We've been trying to schedule a family trip for this summer. We thought we had the perfect trip to visit the grandparents. Then something came up. Something always comes up doesn't it. So now we are back to the drawing board.

Anybody want to come visit me this summer? I promise to show you a good time. Beach, mountain, zoo, museums, we can do it! (but not all at the same time) Macey? Danielle? Sarah? Val? Mel? Bueller? Anyone???

My Mom helped organize the costumes for our stake for the dance festival. Don't know if she'll be attending, but her stake is participating as well. Have fun with that! :) HEHEHE

Valerie said...

I want to come but it depends on that other guy and school and stuff like that.

Let me know if Bueller decides to show....

Beuller? Beuller? Beuller?

You're hilarious ;)

I WISH!!! Mabey Ryan will get sick of me this fall and send me away. He used to do that more when we didn't live in nowhere land. WHAT IS DANCE FESTIVAL???

Melanie said...

Maybe Val and I can come for a "girls weekend" or something. Of course I will have to bring my newest male offspring but he is pretty easy going. :)

Macey: Dance Festival is something they do every four years or so around here. It includes 7 stakes. Each class (ie Beehives, MiaMaids, Deacons etc) have their own dance. There are costumes, props, sets and all get out. It end with a 2 day shindig at a local stadium. There is an obscene amount of planning and effort that goes into this. I'm expecting great things.
Mel: Girls weekend would be awesome. And little male offsprings would definitely be welcome. Especially ones that are so cute and little and snugglable!
