Stake Conference was amazing, both yesterday and today. Our Stake Presidency spoke and shared wonderful, inspiring messages. I couldn’t keep up in my note-taking.

After conference concluded, me and my new Presidency were set apart. It was the first time I met my counselors.  They seem awesome…can’t wait to get to know them.

All of our setting aparts were beautiful and custom-tailored to us as individuals.  Pretty typical of me, but I can’t remember most of what was said but I remember how I felt.

Not too long after, Ashlyn had New Beginnings tonight. It is for all the Young Women but especially for the new ones coming into the program. 

There are probably around eight new Beehives coming in this year, which is a lot for our ward.

We ended up bringing Bailee with us…

They spotlighted each new Beehive and gave them a “bee” balloon with a baggie with their favorite candybar, persinal progress book and more.  Here are a few of them as they go up after they are spotlighted….

We hurried home from New Beginnings to get dinner started. We had invited my mom and one of my Visiting Teaching sisters family over for dinner and hadn’t started the food yet….45-50 minutes to go.  We made Navajo tacos…here Emmy is helping Andy roll out the dough.

We had such a good time with them {The Snyder family}. We will have to do it again soon.
