Sunday. Oh today was fun. I had an early mtg. It's always fun for me to stay up late the night before an early mtg the next day. But the really fun part was that our teacher for RS didn't show up. I think she got her Sundays mixed up. The summer tends to do that to people. So as RS Pres. I ended up giving the lesson...that I didn't preread. Our Education Counselor was out of town and only one sister read the lesson. Oh the joys! I was told afterwards that it was a really good lesson and I can't take credit. The Spirit took over and the women shared experiences and thoughts they had. It really was a testimony of how the Spirit works miracles.
Monday. Running with Kendra. My sweet neighbor/VTer, Emily, came to visit me. She shared a wonderful lesson and we both shared special experiences we've had in the temples. I am so grateful to know her. Then it was off to Carson so Makinley could spend her birthday money. Then off to Cave Rock on Lake Tahoe for some summer fun with the Heussers. Thanks for the invite, Paula. The time sure flies when you're having fun. We didn't leave till 5:30. Brandon spent a whole 3-4 hours at work and the rest of the day golfing. He brought pizza home for dinner. Hurray, I didn't have to cook.
Tuesday. Running with Kendra...Tennis with Paula. Into Carson, again. We had to run some errands and find Paula a bday present. I ended up making her a small plaque that says, 'No One Can Take Your Place' in vinyl. And positioning it on an easle. Nothing too extravagent.
Wednesday. Paula's birthday was today and she invited us to go hiking. We went to Carson Pass. It was a really pretty hike. 5 miles total and I can't believe the kids did it. They were great. It's always good to see how many miles you hiked at the end and not the beginning. Happy Birthday, Paula. We really had fun. Then it was a rush to get home for Kennidy's piano lesson, a nap, and relaxation. I'll be sore tomorrow.
Thursday. Running with Kendra. Lake Tahoe. Enrichment Hike up Carson Pass, again. This time I had mosquito repellent and didn't get eaten.
