Talks, sick kids, and a broken garage...

Marlee got to speak in church yesterday, lucky girl. She spoke on gratitude and did a fantastic job. I was very impressed. Who knew she was that good at public speaking. After her talk Landon took Jamie home because she said she felt like she was going to throw up. Shortly after that Waylon started fussing that he also felt sick. He didn't look very good so I took him home to join Landon and Jamie.
.
I then went back and taught my first lesson as an "official" relief society teacher. I love being the teaching for our times instructor because I love the conference talks and the women in my class make the best comments. I've already read next month's talk "Come to Zion" by Elder Christofferson. Wow, what a great talk! Really great food for thought. I can't wait to study it further.
.
After church Rick and Landon went out to try and fix the garage door that Rick accidentally broke as we headed out that morning. Apparently he was staring at my legs instead of focusing on driving. What can you do when your husband of almost 19 years still loves your legs enough to get in an accident over them? You certainly can't get mad over a broken garage door I'll tell you that much. You just can't. Even if I do have to park outside in the cold now. It's worth it to know I'm so loved.
.
Jamie and Waylon are still so, so sick. Rick and I were up all night with them and they're not doing well this morning either. Hope we don't pass this one around. So not fun.

oh sorry to hear the kids are sick.
I love that Rick was looking at your legs and broke the garage... it must be a Shumway thing... I love how they still continually compliment and think we look hot.

You are probably the best RS teacher! That is so awesome. I admire the love you and your husband have for each other! Thanks for being such a good example to me. I wish I knew you in person!

Sorry your kids are sick--so not fun. My garage door is broken, too, but not because my husband broke it staring at my legs! But he is like Rick in that he is still complimenting me after 17 years. It's the best to have a husband like that! I have had the R.S. teacher calling twice and loved it both times. But it did always seem like the weekend I taught was always a rough one for my kids!
