So today was the day my whole family went to out new church for the first time since moving to our lovely home in Kansas. Exciting/exhilarating/nerve-wracking, right? At first, I was more the first and second. When we walked in the doors, kind of the third, but not as much as I’ve previously experienced.
So my thoughts on this lovely ward we’re moved into: 1) The first class was amazing. Seriously. I freaking love the guy that taught it. I’m gonna marry somebody like him when I grow up, so if anybody wants to know the sort of guy I’m interested in, they just need to come and visit me on a Sunday and I’ll show them. 2) Young Women’s was kind of boring… I was surprised. After all the laughs of Sunday School, everybody was all serious. Maybe it was just the subject (it was one of those awkward ones where only other teachers answer the questions). 3) There were 7 Young Women, including my sister and I. Not the biggest ward we’re ever been in, but it’s the third biggest (the second biggest was the last ward (9 YW at it’s peak), and the fourth was one in Jacksonville with 6 people at it’s peak).
We have a seminary BYC tonight with the three other wards that we’ll be having seminary with everyday starting yesterday. It’ll be different for me, because the most people I’ve ever had seminary with was 6 people, but not as much for my younger sister, since it’ll be her first year going. I’m debating whether or not I want to be nice and let her sit next to me, or be annoyed like I’ve been feeling all weekend and tell her to go sit somewhere else, or sit on the end.
But now that I’m thinking about it, I’m not really sure WHY I’ve been feeling so annoyed/irritated by everything. I mean, we’ve been doing a lot of cool and fun stuff all weekend. Maybe it’s just cause I miss everybody back in Georgia…but whatever the case, I’m making it a point to be nice tomorrow (despite having to be awoken at 5am in the morning) and let her sit next to me. Unless she goes somewhere else with some other girl. Then I’ll be really mad because I put all this effort into thinking about it and deciding and she totally ignore my silent offer.
Wish me luck cyber people!
