callings and trips

I am such a slacker! It's not that I don't want to blog. More like I totally forget, or when I do think about it, I just don't have anything interesting to write.

Joe got a new calling.... as Elder's Quorum President. At first I thought this wouldn't be a big deal, until the stake president in the interview said that it required Joe to visit the members two nights a week. We have so many projects around here, that usually only get done in the evening. So this takes a big chunk of Joe's productive time away. But I am going to be supportive. (that doesn't mean I can't whine once in a while, and vent on the blog).

Yesterday we made a quick dash down to college station. It's about a 4 hour drive, so 8 total. That's a lot for one day (for me at least). Joe's little sister Ruth had her senior project. It was a wonderful musical program with everything ranging from Japanese flute to guitar solos. Ruth has the most amazing voice, so it was fun to hear her perform too.

I have a confession to make. I hadn't touched my harp since Christmas, until last week. That's over 3 months! I don't know why I go through these fazes where I either play a ton, or don't even glance at it. It's important that I keep playing though, because I can tell my soul starts missing the music.

How awesome that you guys got to go see Ruth's concert. I'm sure it meant a lot to her that you were there.

that's a big calling! the elder's quorum president is the work horse of the ward. but I also think it's a calling with a lot of blessings from performing so much hands-on service. joe will grow a lot.

Life will definately get busier - but it's all good. Matt loves serving in the EQP. IT's going to be a wonderful blessing for your family. (don't you just love hearing that)
