Amos woke up early to go to the temple with the youth. He can’t do baptisms so he does confirmations but he can’t feel how hard or soft he is putting his hands on someone’s head so he struggles with that too.
Amos then spent the rest of the day at Porter’s wrestling tournament. I worried about him but he seems to have good energy back.
My sweet boy doesn’t have the strength to win matches yet. He has lost every match this season, but he isn’t letting it get him down and he works as hard as anyone I’ve ever seen. Today is the first day Amos was able to watch him and coach him a little. He was able to help him learn how to improve. Porter wants so much to be a wrestler like his dad although he is built more like a basketball player. I think it’s ok to stretch ourselves to improve in areas where we may not be particularly talented. It builds character, teaches humility and helps our weaknesses become strengths.
Now we just need to put some weight on this boy.
Evelyn cheered for Porter at the tournament while I cheered on my little girls cleaning the house. My favorite part of the day was Kirra making a spreadsheet to manage the housecleaning. She gave all of us assignments including me. I loved that she took on the role of taskmaster so I could be the kind mommy. I’m really getting a kick out of watching these fun kids grow up and seeing their potential for greatness. We got the house cleaned and we are ready for Sunday.
