Conference Weekend

kid creation + kid-taken pic :)

This weekend we watched and listened to General Conference. And also built domino towers and made origami and colored made-by-joel paper cities... Saturday the kids were doing so well playing on their own for the most part, and I got so many little organizing jobs done around the house while I listened - it was super great. Ellie and I got to go together to the Women's conference together at the Stake Center that evening too. Sunday we did our little treat game and all listened together, and I think I heard more of the talks than I have in many years.  (Our children are growing!) And I felt excited and inspired with the upcoming changes too!

President Nelson challenged the women of the church to read the Book of Mormon by the end of the year, and I'm excited for this. I haven't read it all the way through in a really long time, so I think it will be great for me. And, he challenged us to take a 10 day break from any social media. So, I'm still going to write (because I'm so happy to have made this a habit again at last!!) but I'll just wait for these 10 days to publish any more here. And I'll report back on this challenge too!  (I did this last month or so when he challenged the youth to do the same, and I know I did read more books that week!  Also, after the week, I was happy to be able to check back in with the few bloggers and instagram accounts that I follow -- maybe I'll make a list of my favorites in 10 days :)
