Leah got baptized!

Last weekend, Leah took a big step forward and was baptized, right after her friend!  We had a nice lunch, the baptism, and then amazing cake!  Leah's friend's Grandma makes amazing cakes!  I was excited my mom and sisters could come, plus two of my nieces and my mother-in-law! Leah was scared, but felt confident when baptized and knew she had made the right choice!  She bore a very sweet testimony in church today!

Well, it's been an incredibly long time!  I'm usually exhausted and I've been busy writing in my journal and living life.  Between teaching school, and after school and then doing the LIFE Program, I've been at school lots!  This weekend though was amazing, so I'm back!
We knew it was going to be crazy busy yesterday!  Scott had a meeting in Topeka, Kira had a choir and band competition.  She sang and played her flute.  While she was doing that, we were running at the Temple Run.  We were late getting there, so we got our shirts, registered and were off.  We passed lots of walkers and turned at the mile mark.  Leah found a butterfly, so we stopped and admired it.  We ran pretty well at the end and it was fun!  Kira's teacher sent me videos of her performances too!  Hurray for amazing teachers!  We met Daniel Sorenson (not sure on the spelling), a Kansas City Chief and got a picture and his autograph.  I saw a few longtime friends too!  Then we went to the Commemorative Air Force Open Hangar.  We had lunch, made gliders, and "flew" a little plane.  Then we went home!  Scott enjoyed his meeting and Kira did well in her competition!
 Today we kept up our new family tradition.  We made stained glass cookies and caramels.  We brought them to our neighbors.  It's so much fun!  We love our little town and neighbors!
