Today I received a new calling in my ward. I was called as the Primary President. WOW!! I know, thats what I said. When the bishop called me I was like, president!, president!, president!.
Today I visited the primary and observed and met some of the little kids. I am so excited to work in the primary and get to know all of the little children and my counselors better. If anyone has any ideas they would like to share that would be great specially when it comes to the primary program coming up this fall and ideas for fun activities. The last time I was in primary I was 9 or 10.

I just have to share the fun time I had with my neice Sydney over the weekend. This cute little girl and I share a special bond. When she was a baby I used to watch her every Saturday Morning for almost a year until Aaron and Angie moved back to Oregon. I have missed the fun special moments with her. Now that Shane and I are in Oregon I get to see her more often then I did when I was in Utah. We had Sydney sleep in our tent over the weekend when we were camping. The first night she complained that Shane and I snored to loud and she couldn't sleep. The next night I told her I would tell her some bedtime stories. We stayed up laughing and telling stories. I told the "GOt you Where I wAnt you Now I'M Going to Eat you" story at the end she wanted me to tell the story again and change the animal. SO I change the monkey to an Elephant, she started laughing so much and said, Elephants don't have fingers to pick ther nose they only have a nose with two holes to drink with. I was laughing so hard It was so cute and her laugh was sweet. At night she would suck her thumb. I found myself wide awake because of the noise she made when sucking her thumb so I guess were even now. Sydney, I don't know if you will ever see this but I want you to know I love you and I'm so glad you are my neice. Thanks for the laughs.
Shane and I met my family less then and hour north of here for the forth of July. We camped out at Stanton Park and then went into the town of Riddle for some amazing fireworks on the 4th. When I was a kid my family discovered this small little town coming back from a vacation in California. We were driving along at night, my parents were tired so we stopped. The next morning the camp host told us about the firework show in town so we decided to stay another night. We loved it so much we went back the next year. It's now been 24 years later and we thought it would be fun to go back this year and see if Riddle was still living up to it's expectations of a great firework show. It was AMAZING!! We had a great spot in the park and the fireworks were right over our heads. I don't think I have seen a firework show like this sience the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. We all had a fun time camping, swimming and baking in the sun. HOT! Hot! Hot! We were all there except for Nate & Stephanie, Becca and Jared and Nichol. Our friend Dave joined in on the fun as well. I hope next year we can plan to go again and have the whole family there.
