[No comments] [Trackback URL for this entry] News: It's official. I'm now in nursery, with Gunnar. I was a little surprised because I had two callings already (Activities Committee and Cub Scouts asst Den leader) but they released me from A.C. It's all good, I really don't mind. I like the age group of nursery kids and I'm actually kinda excited. I'll miss RS though.

In other news, I ran a 10k race yesterday. I improved upon my time from my last 10k (and 5k according to my stopwatch) so no complaints here. I guess it would be too selfish of me to pout about getting fourth place in my age group instead of 3rd so I could have won a medal. I missed it by 16 seconds, but that's nothing to complain about since people in the Olympics won and lost gold medals by the difference of .01 seconds. Crazy! Oh well. I'm just happy I did it.

On Thurs we went to Lily's teacher meet and greet. She is attending Scarborough Elementary that is just a few minutes from my house. It is brand new and super nice. I am so excited for Lily and I like her teacher from what I saw of her. Mrs. Meyers. Lily was a little apprehensive at first but then when she saw Gunnar running straight for the toys and books she got over it. Luckily, she got the afternoon class so I don't have to wake up at 6AM this year, I really dodged a bullet there. Not looking forward to it next time around.

This evening Aaron gave Lily her first father's blessing before school starts. It was very special and she sat still and kept her eyes closed the whole time. I guess I didn't but I couldn't help but peek at her and wonder how I got so lucky. Aaron giving her a blessing and having a cute daughter to receive it. It was very special and I think Lily could sense that. Except she kept asking me to put my hands on her head too, and offering my turn when Aaron was done. It's awesome that she is at the age where she can "get" stuff now. Just this passed couple months she sits still long enough for me to explain things during sacrament meeting and stuff. I'm blessed tp be able to teach my daughter the gospel, and I am grateful to my parents for having taught me and being born into a family that has the church.

What a positive weekend. I feel so blessed.
