Because of illnesses or baby blessings or stake conference we had yet to attend our ward this year.
I love our ward. The group of people, the diversity of experiences, the talents. It was so nice to be among our friends and ward family again and feel as if we had never been parted.
The BIG thing for this new year is that Tennyson is now a Sunbeam. He was SO excited to go and be in primary with his siblings. It's a weird thing to have most of your children be counted among the primary as opposed to at least half belong to the nursery.
Sanders did fine on his own. He easily makes friends and is becoming very good at sharing.
It's the start of a new chapter for our little family. We've experienced similar things with the older two, but if I have learned nothing as a mother I have learned this. You can recreate every detail to mimic a previous situation and all you have to do is change which child experiences it and you get a whole different out come.
Children have an unpredictable variable to them that makes the challenge of raising them well worth rising to.
