CALLINGS!

Alright friends. I am super excited/scared/nervous/happy right now. For those of you who are not LDS, in our church, we are given jobs in the church which are called callings. In the past, I have been a primary teacher and the primary chorister. Well, we are in a new ward now and so I got a new calling. I was soooo sure that it would be another primary calling, which would have been so fine, but I really wanted something different. And I did! My new calling is.....drum roll please...............
The Laurel Advisor! (aka 17-18 year old girls teacher) I am super excited to get to know all of the cute girls, but I am nervous because I feel like I am their age! Yes, I know I am like 8 years older than them, but it feels like I am still that same girl that I was in high school. (Minus the extra large hips and stretch marks). I am excited to get to play with them and teach them and go to GIRLS CAMP! I just hope they like me! (and that I can teach a freaking hour long lesson!)This is gonna be fun!

You will fit right in! I was always hoping to get a YW calling, but it still has not happened and I think now I would be quite intimidated! You will be so fun though! Thanks for the freebees too. I'm always looking for a deal.

You are soooo lucky! I have wanted to work in YW so badly but am always stuck in primary too. I am the pianist and I really love it, but I sometimes think it would be great to do YW.

You will be so great at your new calling, and it's really not an hour long lesson when you get the girls involved in your lessons, discussions, etc. You'll be great! I'm pretty much ready and done with Primary myself! Nursery has REALLY burned me out... 30 kids. 30 KIDS!!! And that's under 2!

Dude! I totally got homemaking! I think they think I'm Veronica or something. I did Activity Days while we were in VA and it was awful. I was the ONLY one with 14 girls for 4 FREAKIN' MONTHS! But now I get to work with the grown folks. I just can't seem to get away from girls though.....
