Pancake training began for Conner today. Scott was going to make pancakes and Conner asked if he could learn. With hesitation he conceded the spatula to the boy with plenty of wise cracks at every move. We are not one of those families that is all love & rainbows & positivity, and "great job you deserve a medal!" with every mediocre attempt. You gotta have a sense of humor and the ability to let the criticism roll off your back & laugh at your failures. Because that's what the rest of us are doing. Luckily our kids do well in that department!
It was a bit of a crazy, whirlwind weekend that began Friday night with a State PTA Reflections award ceremony for Anna (more on that later). Then Saturday included a middle school Krypto competition for the boys, Anna had a temple field trip with her Activity Days group, a soccer game in the afternoon, and then Scott and I were back at the temple for Ward Temple Night and dinner.
Today we went to church, came home for a quick lunch/dinner of pancakes, and then made our way to the Smith Center for a performance by the Zion's Youth Symphony and Chorus. It was pretty great with solid performances by the choir, symphony, and soloists. What an awesome group of talented high school kids from the valley. And the Smith Center is just an amazing venue so any opportunity to go there is a real treat! Here's a link to a little VIDEO about the choir.
And Anna painted a unicorn.
