The blog has been kind of slow this week so I thought I'd post some stuff.
Last night something creepy and a little worrisome happened when we put Will to bed. Will has been scared the last few months and will wake up crying. We have told him that if he gets scared he should pray and Jesus would come and be with him and make him feel peaceful. He seemed to kind of understand that because there have been times when he'd say, "I not be scared. Jesus make me feel good inside." Well, last night he said, "I not be scared. When I get scared Jesus will come and I will poke him and make him yucky and kill him." Needless to say we were shocked. Mike of course told him that Jesus was good and that we shouldn't kill anyone and that it makes Jesus very sad to hear Will say that. I'm not sure where Will learned that. We have only ever talked about Jesus in a positive manner and we only ever talk about killing when it comes to bugs. Anyway, I'm not really sure why he said that and other than telling him he shouldn't talk that way, we aren't really sure what to do about this new development.
In other news, Mike is going to California next week for a few days. They asked him to go to Missouri for a few days this week and he told them no. Good husband. He loves us. It has been such a nice week as far as weather goes. Yesterday it was in the 60's so I took the boys to the zoo. We took lunches and played at the playground at the zoo and then walked around for awhile. It was so nice! All the animals were outside this time. It was so nice being outside and getting some exercise--exercise really does give a natural high and produce endorphines. Everyone needs to go get some exercise! Of course walking at the zoo isn't really an intense workout but exercise none the less.
I'm feeling really well so far this pregnancy. I still have all the normal pregnancy aches and not sleeping well but I feel good. I have about three and a half months left if the baby comes when it's due so I am just starting the really uncomfortable stage but I am hoping that exercising will make the aches and pains better. We still can't think of a name. Mike really likes James, Johnathan, Joshua. I like them fine but don't know that they really fit. I am twenty pounds less than I was when I had Isaac and there is no way I'm gaining twenty pounds in three months so that's good.
Finally, we have been changing a lot in Primary. The last presidency was better at certain things but there were a lot of things that they just didn't care about that I think were pretty important things. There have been days when four of our five teachers haven't shown up to teach and we also had to cover the nursery too. So we've been getting new teachers that we feel will be more dedicated to their classes. We've made other changes too but nursery has been a continual problem. No one in our ward will accept the calling. The bishopric called to pregnant ladies to the nursery and I told them it was a bad idea and that they should be prepared to have both ladies ask to be released after a few months. They called the ladies anyway saying it was a perfect place for them and sure enough, within a few months, both ladies asked to be released saying they don't want their new baby down with all the little kids. One of the ladies is having her baby in three weeks. She asked to be released about six months ago. I told the bishopric four months ago that we needed someone down there to replace her when her baby came and they have done nothing about it. Mike reminded them again a few weeks ago and they said they needed to think about it more. So this past week they came up with a solution--all the kids have to be taken back to their parents. There are four kids in nursery right now--my two children and two girls that belong to the two ladies that were in nursery and asked to be released. So Mike and I are screwed. We will now have bishopric and primary responsibilities and three kids to take care of. Needless to say, I am not feeling very warmly towards the bishopric and poor Mike gets the brunt of it. Stupid men.
Anyway, other than that, we are doing great. How is everyone else today?
