We have a white board on the wall in our house which I use daily to remind me of where I should be and when. I believe Sunday was one of the busiest days our family has had in a long time...
Hillary and Patrick flew in Friday night to take part in all of our family activities. Sunday was Hillary's 21st birthday. After Garrett, John and I reported to the high council that morning, we had a big birthday breakfast to celebrate.
Garrett spoke in Sacrament Meeting before entering the MTC on Nov. 28 to serve in the Mexico Leon Mission. His friend and our neighbor Adam Alvey spoke too so there were 600 people in the congregation. I was glad the choir was asked to sing. Between the choir members and Young Men and Young Women who participated, we had more than 50 singers. It was amazing. They sang "As Sisters In Zion/We'll Bring the World His Truth.
Garrett did an excellent job and we had more than 100 family members, friends and neighbors join us for enchiladas, salads, nachos and desserts after the meeting.
The next excited event for Grayson was his Eagle Scout Court of Honor. I am SO proud of him. He completed all the requirements while he was still 13 years old and earned almost 50 merit badges.
I love the part in the program when all those who have earned their Eagle Scout award are asked to come forward and sit in the Eagles Nest. Very cool.
Grayson was given the Eagle Charge and Pledge.
We are proud parents.
Grayson with his Eagle Scout award. (I totally look like I've been up since 4 am--oh wait, I was!)
...and yes, I slept in this morning. Didn't get out of bed until 6:55 am.
