Yes, I'm still here!

It's been a while since I last blogged. It has been a whirlwind of; end of school year, family visiting, and husband finishing internship, and my new chuch calling. Whewwww...

Krystan finished 5th grade. She will be attending Meigs Middle School here in Florida next school year. She is glad the summer is here. She will be attending two Girls Camp sessions. 1st in Alabama with Aunt Polly and the 2nd here with the rest of the young women here in Florida.

Olivia finished 4th grade and can't wait for 5th grade field trips next year. The 5th grade goes on several for their aeronautical studies for the year. I hope she knows how much studying that she is going to have to do.

We have had family in town that past several weeks and will have more in the next few. It's nice being close to family again but will probably wear off by end of the summer.

And I was issued a calling as the new Relief Society president here in Ft Walton Beach, FL. I have mixed feeling about this. Secretary was nice! I have my work cut out for me. There are lots of missing links here. There was no current food storage program to motivate members before I was asked to teach on the 5th Sunday, back in December. There are about 3-7 people that attend enrichment activities at a time. Yes, you heard me and yes, we are a ward. And we are a transcient ward with all the EOD and other military families. Hopefully, getting back to the basics in the handbook will help with some of the issues. I have put my total faith in God that he will lead me and my counselors in the direction that the sisters need most. At least I didn't have one comment on Sunday about my "Deer in the Headlight" look.
