Part of the Village

Wednesday night was New Beginnings for the Young Women in our ward.  That is a meeting held near the beginning of the year that introduces the Mutual theme for the year and welcomes the girls who will be turning twelve and joining Young Women's in the coming year.  Elinor is so happy to be a part of that group.  The gal on the right is already twelve, but is good friends with the newbies.  I want to recreate this photo in about six years when they are seniors.
George's little neighborhood preschool went on a field trip to the fire station last week.  Do you want to hear something sad-- he is way down the line of children in our family, but the first to ever go on a field trip to the fire station.  How have I missed that super cool thing with the others?  At least Faith and Cannon got in on this trip.
And George was one happy four year-old little boy with his own fire hat.
They loved it. 
Fireman Pete was kind of squirmy.  He didn't really love it that much, but he is wearing his firetruck pajamas.
Elinor and her Sea-Perch underwater robotic team.  Actually, each team only has three members, so there are two teams here-- the boys and the girls.  They will compete in the middle of March.
Clark's team manager is also the mom who mentors Elinor's team, so both teams were working at the Leonardo on Tuesday night.  Here is Clark working on part for the "Bot".  The build season is only six weeks and they are already 2/3 of the way through.  The Utah regional is March 11-14--can't wait to see what they've been working on. 
I can do a lot for my children, but I can't do it all-- especially as they get older.  I am so thankful for others who make a real difference in their lives.
