I did it!

I am so glad it is over!! I can't believe they asked me to do it! I'm not smart enough, I thought! Are you curious?? They asked me to substitute teach the Relief Society lesson yesterday. I know what you are thinking- lucky me. I was terrified but as I got started the time just flew by. I feel good about my lesson on John the Baptist. I got many compliments so that made me feel good too. It was a little tougher of a lesson but I learned so much and many people said they did to. Before I started, the lady that asked me to teach the women of my ward told me she was trying to set it up that I would teach every month. She went out of town and came back last week too late. I got my calling last Sun. I think I would rather be an Achievement Day leader and play with 8 year old girls than stand in front of adults and teach them. But I did it and am proud of myself. For those of you that are mad you didn't know, that was on purpose. I was nervous enough!!

Glad the stress is all over and I am sure you did a fantastic job. Goodluck with Achievement Days. I still would rather teach RS than do Achievement Days!

I am sure that you did such a great job. I love the curls Dallins hais it reminds me of Ryans when he was little. I don't know if you know this but one night when my parents were out with Allen for his birthday we had a baby sitter ay home and she was not a very good babysitter and I decided that everyone needed a hair cut. Any way I cut off Ryans curls and his eye lashes, not sure how I managed that, but my Mom said they never grew back as curly after that. I ended up cutting everyones hair and the baby sitter never new till I was all done. My parents never had her come back.

Hopefully Dallin won't try to do hair like Lyndsay. I am sure that you did an awesome job. You are a natural teacher - it is a gift that you have. Would have loved to have heard it. Next time:)

Way too go. I think teaching in Relief Society is pretty scary at first, but it can be so much fun once you get used to it!!!
