New Calling

Sunday before last I was sustained as the 1st counselor in the Primary presidency! Woah! Definitely the biggest one for me yet, so I have my work cut out for me. =) I'm not going to lie, I was hoping to not get a calling in Primary, but after just one Sunday in there, I already love it! As 1st counselor I oversee some of the primary teachers and all of Cub Scouts. So I'll need to go the the weekly den meetings, monthly pack meetings, committee meetings and roundtable meetings. Then I have to go to ward council meetings every Sunday morning before before church. And then there's presidency meetings. Phew! Also, as a presidency, we'll switch off on duties during primary on Sundays. So one month I'll be doing sharing time, one month I'll be greeting & roving and one month I'll be conducting. How busy, and how fun! I have a LOT of names to learn and a lot of getting used to in Cub Scouts - that's definitely not my area of expertise. =) Wish me luck!

p.s...the President, 2nd counselor and secretary are the GREATEST. We are going to have a lot of fun together. It was hilarious 'cause after our first day in primary on sunday, Dot (the president) looked at me and said "We need another meeting." And we laughed. We have a lot to figure out! =)

Ooooh! That's exciting! I'm the 1st Counselor in Primary too! Though, I am over Nursery and Activity Days girls. Super fun! You'll be uber-fantastic. :-D
