She fasted for breakfast last week and did it happily and willingly. In our family we start fasting one meal at 8, 2 at 12, and then the full 24 hours when ready.
We've had several fhe's to talk about baptism, gone over the booklets the primary gave out, met with bishop and Activity day leaders. And Matt and I will take her out for ice cream this week or next to talk to follow up with her. I think she was ready and understands as much as an 8-yo can.
She went to her first A days on Wednesday. She was super anxious about it! Like, didn't want to go at all. It was super weird. She went to A days with me for over a year, and she was always excited about it. 7 and 8 has been weird, but she went and ended up loving it. Surprise, surprise.
After the baptism we came home for about an hour. Then we headed to the Moran's for a ward council BBQ to increase unity among the council. They have an awesome tree house that our girls fell in love with.
No rest for the party people, so we stopped home to pick grandpa up, refill our pasta salads, and head to the Nelson's 50th birthday/30th anniversary party.
After that it was finally time to go home. It was a wonderfully full day, and honestly I wouldn't have it any other way. Makes me enjoy the free days that much more.
