Almost every week that we drive to church, we get behind a car that isn’t going quite as fast as Roland believes it should. He jokes about it because nine out of ten times we will follow it all the way to the Catholic Church before it turns into the parking lot. Roland will then speed up though there is less than 20 seconds left before we arrive at the LDS church.
This morning an ambulance passed us as we were heading to town. It did not get on the freeway but continued on past the school. And guess where it turned? The Catholic Church parking lot. We left the house a bit later than usual and so the parking lot was pretty filled by the time we got to church. Every family must have brought a car for each driver in the family. I don’t know why the parking lot seemed so full when the chapel didn’t appear so. It appeared that half the pews were empty – more so than usual.
I gave my talk today- or a partial of my talk. Once I sat down I realized what I hadn’t said and felt upset at having not included certain parts of my talk. I did receive many genuine compliments. I’m grateful that I hadn’t offended anyone and that my words were well received.
A new couple was called to
teach the sunbeams and it appears there is an instructor for the CTR as
well. Danny and I had the smallest class
this year. Seven students with a total
of 15 children in primary. Danny and I
decided to split our class – though not in the middle. She will be taking all the older children and
I will be taking the younger ones. I
will have only four or five in my class at the most. I have already introduced them to the
passport idea found here and will probably continue with it as I believe it has appealed more to the
children I’ll be teaching over the one’s that Danny will be teaching.
Roland, who normally stays after church for clerical reasons, said that he would be going home with me today. We stayed for choir practice but now we are home. I’m going over my lesson for next week.
