We have had a exciting, emotional rollar coaster this weekend. Friday I was talking to a friend in the ward and she had mentioned that they were putting in a new 1st counseler in the Bishobric on Sunday. We both laughed and said our husbands were not it because we had not had any phone calls.Saturday I had ran to the Grocery store to get a few things for lunch. I had been having a really hard day. I had been telling Kerry that I was tired and I didn't like my kids and I was just plain overwhelmed.When I came in from the grocery store I started to prepare lunch. Kerry was sitting at the counter working on his lap top. He said Ashley tell Mom who just called. Ashley said the school crossing gaurd. I think I just about had a come apart. Kerry was not aware that I knew that the school crossing gaurd was also the stake secretary. I asked him what he wanted and he said that he had an appointment with the stake president on Sunday at 10.He also informed me I was to come with him. The rest of the day my head would not work. I kept playing the what if game. I really hoped it would be something in the Elders quorum. I called my mom and warned her to be prepared to come to our ward on Sunday. I explained what was happening. I think Kerry and I knew what was really going to happen we have sort of been prepared for it.
Sunday morning Kerry got called to be the Bishops 1st counselor. I really am not sure what I think of the whole thing. I think that he will do an amazing job, and he will enjoy it, but I am scared to be a single mom most of the time. I am scared of the unknown. I think that it will all work out and that we will be blessed. I know that it is what we are supposed to be doing right now and the Lord knows what I can handle. I hope that everyone can keep us in your prayers these first couple of weeks. I am grateful that I have lots of family in the ward.
We are also very excited to be welcoming a little boy into our home. I am relieved that Kerry will finally get his son to pass his name on to. I cried when the doctor said it was a boy. I even asked him if he was joking. I think that it will take a while for it to kick in, probably even till we have him. I got a few boy clothes with my mom yesterday. I kept veering to the girls stuff. Any help in the boy area would be greatly appreciated.

Goodbye training wheels

Kerry took Maddies training wheels off yesterday. She did such a great job. She took off right away, and never fell over. She learned to stop herself and start herself. Way to go Maddie We love you
