Truth in Church

Today during Sacrament meeting I had this conversation with my redhead!
Ron: Mom, I don't know what I would do without this little guy, I love him so much!
Amen Dude, Amen! :)

I got set apart today for two callings.... Girls Camp Director (YIKES!) and nursery leader! BYUman set me apart for Girls Camp and Bro. Wood set me apart for nursery leader. And since I was privileged to receive two blessings today, I was reminded of a good many important things. I was reminded that I need to be on my knees, asking for guidance in teaching the girls. I was reminded that I should be patient, and let the girls know of my love for them.  I was reminded that the little ones are so close to our Heavenly Father and that their spirits are willing and ready to learn. I was reminded that I should use the time in nursery to bond with my little boy (BYUman joked that my new calling would increase my interaction with Fred by 25%! haha). And then I was reminded that the Lord knows the deepest wish of my heart and that one day, in his own time, I will be granted that wish. Thank goodness for reminders.

So, I found this FREE online job chart! It lets you set up jobs and set up your own rewards! And the BEST part is that it KEEPS TRACK OF POINTS!!!!  I DETEST keeping track of points! I love that the rewards are both non-monetary and then my kids get other options courtesy of Amazon (haha, I don't EVEN have to go to the store to get them a reward.... it comes to my FRONT DOOR!)

Ok, I will stop talking in capitals! :) We are starting this week. We have decided to allow them to play on the computer/wii for 1/2 hour on the weekends, without earning it. BUT if they want additional time, then they must earn that.

I hope this is not too early to let you know, since we haven't actually started, but it seems FAB!
