Sunday, April 6, 2008
Jacob, Katie and Daniel chose to be downstairs watching with us almost the whole time.
Katie carefully noted in a Conference booklet who spoke and the topic.
Jacob, Daniel and Beth quietly played Conference topic bingo together for most of one session.
Even Jeffrey got in on the coloring and drew pictures on paper while we all tried to listen.
Josh quietly listened to the talks more than ever before.
Dad made omelettes and we ate left-over cinnamon rolls (from after Priesthood session) for breakfast Sunday morning.
We all got to raise our hands in different groups as we sustained President Monson in the Solemn Assembly. Daniel felt pretty disappointed that he didn't belong to the Deacon's Quorum yet.
Daniel chose to attend Priesthood session with Dad and Jacob even though he technically won't be 12 until June 1. He decided sitting for two hours isn't that great, but he did remember lots of stories from all of the talks.
Rich and I got to sit next to one another and hold hands lots of times!
The little children left the room to play somewhere else during the last two talks of the last session, so we really got to listen to Elder Ballard and to President Monson. The Spirit was unusually strong.
We got a good laugh from the fact that we were usually 30 minutes behind on the session from all of the pausing we had to do!
