Sunday in Vancouver

So we got a text from McKay early Sunday morning saying Scarlett had been sick all through the night.

Poor baby. So we didn't get to see them yesterday, 
so instead spent the whole church block at Karen and Tyler's ward.

I know what's going on in that church building before I even walk inside. It's home to me, in a sweet
happy way I can't explain. I just know that I love it there. 

Karen was off to teach the young women.

I went to Primary with Richie and his class. 
One little look at him and his endearing tie, and I just had to stay. 

 Richie is by far the tallest Sunbeam in his class.
The lesson was on being thankful for our hands. The children got to reach inside sacks of different
items and tried to describe them. 

Then they were given little gold fish crackers and asked to describe how the crackers felt against their
hands. Each child was given a turn to come up with a descriptive word, but Richie, I must say, was the
only one who had an answer. He said, "They feel like sand." I nearly stood up and clapped.  

And yes, the day was as gorgeous as it looked!
So were the grandchildren and their parents.
Spoken like a Grandma.

Aww. What a great Sabbath Day!
And I know what you mean, when you walk in a church building, you just know it has that just right feel. No matter where you are in the world....

Right, you said it better than I could Rebecca.

I'm so glad you got to be in Rich's class. I haven't really observed him in there. I know the boys loved every minute of you being here.

What a fun day.
