Yesterday I was released from the Young Women's presidency. It was really a bittersweet day. I have been in Young Women's for collectively almost 4 fours (I was in it, we moved to Twin for a couple months and I was released, we moved back and I was put back in it.) I am really going to miss working with the girls, their energy and giggles, especially now that I am not teaching it was fun to work with the youth. I am excited though to see what the Lord has in store for me, what will my next calling be. Yesterday Brent said, "Maybe you won't have a calling for a while," and I just burst into tears. For me, there is such a feeling of service and dedication to helping the Lord and others while holding a calling. I don't want a break from that, but if that's what is in store I guess I will enjoy sitting in Relief Society. :) It's exciting to think about what's in the future!

Nap time at the Wrights

Today I put the kids down for their naps, and normally they lay down and go to sleep with a little singing or talking, but not so today. I was sitting on the couch reading and listening to them giggle and giggle. I peeked into their room to find Mailee laying in bed, with nothing but her underwear on, and Carson standing in his crib looking at her. She would pull back her covers and yell boo, to which they would both erupt in giggles. By the time I got the camera, Mailee was out of bed playing with Carson and both of them were still laughing their heads off. It's moments like this that really make me enjoy being a mom.

Sunday afternoon I caught Brent and Carson catching some ZZZZs before Easter Dinner. It was too cute to pass up.

Carson's Fear

The other day we were at some friends, and they had one of these spiky gel balls. Carson has a huge fear of it. They showed him the ball, he touched it and started to cry. Every time he would see it, he would scowl and move away from it. He wouldn't even come to me if I was holding it. That is a strong fear if a child won't even come to his mom. It is amazing how early in life little ones create likes and dislikes, fears and know what comforts them. I wish I still had their natural abilities to sense good and bad and their closeness to Heavenly Father that we tend to lose as we grow older. I just feel blessed to have him and Mailee in our home and be able to feel of their sweet spirits!

Just a quick blog, but I found out today that I either have a stress fracture in my hip, or something wrong with my SI joint in my lower back. I also have a Baker's Cyst in my knee. Oh the joys of running. I can't find out for sure if I have a stress fracture without a bone scan, and I would have to ween Carson. My doctor cut off my exercise for 10 days and put me on high doses of Motrin. If things aren't improved I will have to go in for the bone scan. I am just happy to have a better idea of why I am in so much PAIN!

On the Run Again

Last Saturday I ran my first race in about five years. It was good. It was 5.5 miles, and as I have just started running, I was planning on finishing in about 55 min. I ended up finishing in 48.51 min and took first in my age group. (I was okay with just finishing, so this was a nice surprise.) It ended up being a COLD, Snowy day, which made me even happier with my time.

So We Finally Become Bloggers...

Well I created a Myspace page a couple of months ago to keep in touch with family and friends, but now a lot of my friends have created bloggs and I really like the set-up and tone of them much better, so we too, have decided to become bloggers. More for my own benefit of journaling than anything else (but I really love to read your comments also). I hope to keep in touch with friends and family through this page, and have enjoyed reading other's bloggs.
