This feels like a busy and a calm week, all at the same time. At the very least, I don't feel like I have too much to write about.

Like I said, we had a big month for baptisms. We originally had 17 baptisms, but for various reasons, it went down to 12. That usually happens. But 12 is still big. The stake we split from still uses our stake center and do baptisms at 11, so we had to schedule everything to make sure we were done by then. So we had to start at 8:30. Which meant I had to be there by 7. Yipes! But everything went smoothly in the set up. Hooray! We had some hiccups and problems along the way, but overall, it went pretty well. We got out in time, which was the most important. I did kind of feel like we were doing fast-food baptisms, so I'm requesting that next month we have two sessions (and do one at 1:00). (Of course, it just occurred to me that my secretary and 2nd counselor will be out of town and my 1st counselor will quite likely be out of town… so that'll be fun… doing two sessions by myself. Haha. But actually talking it out, it won't be too bad.)

Abby is really into books lately.

Did I tell you that BJ bought Sim City and that I got into playing it? Well, Kessa likes to watch me play. I think all of our Kessaisms this week come from her watching me play that.
- Kessa: What are they saying? Me: That they're sick. Kessa: Mom! They're eating too much sugar, right?
- Looking at a guy on Sim City with a brown beard, Kessa: Is that God? Me: No, but he has a beard like that, huh? Kessa: And gods must have beards, huh.
