Tambourines and a Bat Mobile
Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . trying to watch a two-hour session of stake conference while singlehandedly (Phillip's away at a conference) keeping three small children content and quiet. By the end of the first hour they were antsy and tired of all the snacks and activities I'd brought. I still managed to glean some good insights from the meeting, and I'm glad we went, but by the end I felt like I was trying to listen to a symphony while three people beat me with tambourines. After the meeting, a friend assured me that I'm doing the most important job in the world, and doing it better than I realize. That helped a little.
. . . discovering that making a mobile out of sticks and paper bats is not nearly as easy as I had expected.

. . . pondering my conference notes while Anna napped and the big kids had some screen time.
. . . talking a walk with the kids.
. . . looking through old photos.
