Back to the temple. The nearest temple is in Louisville Kentucky. It takes about 2 1/2 hours to get there and while I know there are some who travel even longer, being from Utah (where there are 15 temples alone), it seems like a trek. It will be so nice to have one close.
This weekend we also got to attend the baptism of a convert to the church. His name is Paul Hodge and he became interested in the church when the missionaries knocked on his door. He's been learning, reading, and praying ever since and after many long months, finally entered the waters of baptism. The missionaries cried and embraced as did many of us ward members. It was cool!!!
Before conference on Sunday we went on a little nature walk with the kids. (boy do I miss the mountains) The kids collected all sorts of stuff and we came home and made crafts with our loot.
Yesterday was Tobe's last day of soccer. He really enjoyed the idea of soccer. He never argued to go to soccer. He loved his soccer coach and his soccer coach loved him. But he never did get into the game. You could usually find him staring at the ceiling, waddling around, and moving his arms as if he were running. It was fun to watch and I think it was good for him. We plan to sign him up again in January.
So there a little of what we've been up to lately. We are excited to take a break from extra curricular activities for a while. Jane's almost finished with soccer. We are going to continue piano and come January we'll get back into the madness. But for now, we will be a lot less busy which will be nice.
