Back again

It's summertime so I'm not on here as much. Been having a fun and busy summer. So many things to do. At church I recently received my 3rd calling. Now this is interesting in that when we first moved to this area 6 yrs ago, our former bishop told us he doesn't like to give more than 1 calling per person. He wants to make sure you do the one you have, correct. We have a new bishop now of the past yr. He's nice, but things have changed. 1 yr ago I was asked to do the ward bulletin(program) for each week. No problem. Then last Dec I was asked to take care of the ward calendar since it kind of goes with the bulletin(that's where I find a lot of the announcements). Just a few weeks ago I was asked to be the ward music chair and chorister in sacrament. This means I choose the songs for Sacrament, get special music going, and coordinate with the choir. So not only do I have homeschooling happening, but have church stuff. Guess I definitely won't be bored.

Wow you sound busy!! No wonder why I don't see you posting much on WAH!

I do thinks for our church too. I love it but it does get challenging to find balance. For us it is the running with hockey that really adds so much craziness to our schedule. My kids love it though but with 3 now skating I am constantly on the go through the hockey season, living at ice rinks.

Debbie, yeah life just keeps getting busier and busier. The last 2 weeks especially. From the 11th - 18th dh and ds were at scout camp. Then last Tues (21st)-25th dd and dh are at girls' camp. My youngest dd is so tired of life and just wants daddy and siblings back home.

Tricia, yes we have the minivan. Bought it on Mon. Very nice! Honda Odyssey and the kids are thrilled.

Jess, I know, just seems to come at times when life is at its fullest. Thank goodness the organist has stepped in and helped me out a bit right now. She's a very nice person.
