Things went well with “Blue week.” I just barely had a chance to load the pictures onto the computer though, so I still have to go through them all and edit them and then I will post them.
I am starting to feel as though the weekly concentration on a color is a bit futile. Last week I learned that Megan knows all her colors. We were at the library and she was playing with one of those beaded mazes. She pointed out each color including green, orange, purple, yellow, red, and blue. I guess I should start doing more obscure colors like gold or salmon. Apparently this girl doesn’t need me around to teach her anything!!! We’re doing purple this week…maybe I’ll throw in violet and lavender, too…
Adam and I have been very busy the past couple of weeks. For Adam, this semester is rapidly coming to a close. I feel guilty sometimes because he does such an excellent job of balancing school, work, church and family. Most of the other students in the program are at school all day every day and I see Adam a lot more then their…roommates? I am certain that many of them do not comprehend the importance that Adam places on his wife and child. Perhaps they feel like I pressure him to hurry up and be home with me as soon as possible so that he can help take care of Megan or clean the house while I relax. That could never be further from the truth. It’s Adam’s decision to schedule his days the way he does, and I am so very grateful. There is no better part of my day than when he comes through the door. Oh and P.S. he does do a lot of his school work from home. He is a greatly disciplined student.
I have also been busy. A few Sundays ago I was released from my calling as Relief Society Secretary. I was also given my fifth calling since moving here to Ames 11 months previously. I was called to be the Relief Society Compassionate Service Leader, and yes I was scared out of my mind. I still worry every single day about getting things done and about being sensitive to the spirit so I can determine who is in need. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the sisters here in Ames. I just hope that they are grateful to have me serving them. I’ve also been sick the past few days. Monday night my throat started really hurting, and by Tuesday morning it was all red and pussy. Lovely, I know.
Okay I am going to go through the pictures from last week now and I’ll get together some of the highlights from blue week. Czech them out when you get a chance.
