We have been talking about creeks and rivers and ponds, so we went to see some!
Look whose fever broke!
Naturally, the day before she is again scheduled for trach and gtube surgery, she pulls through. Again. This girl is going to wear me out!
We will see if her fever stays down, and she is still panting so gets oxygen sometimes, but for now she woke up a big girl and played with a doll for the first time.
The first graders continue working on Baptism lessons on Sundays.
Today we talked about the importance of the priesthood, and how priesthood authority is needed for the baptism ordinance.
We talked about the example of Jesus getting baptized, and how he went in the water to be baptized by immersion.
We also talked about how our church don’t baptize before age 8, but that turning eight doesn’t mean you are ready. That’s why we are studying now, they realize, before we get to eight.
We talked about how repentance is important in preparing for baptism, how it is a choice to show Heavenly Father we accept His plan, and it is the beginning of committing to being obedient to it.
This guy gets up every morning to play with his scriptures while I read mine. He is starting to be able to read his! I never wake him, but I think he likes the one on one time. He thinks he gets up first, and I don’t have the heart to tell him that I have already fed the baby and put her down in time to hug the preschoolers as they woke, taken them to the bathroom, given them a snack, and put them back to bed as well.
