We had a very exciting Sacrament Meeting yesterday. First, 3 baby blessings. Then, 4 Confirmations, then - - - (drum roll) a new Bishopric. Our bishop is moving to Colorado next month, so the change was not a big suprise, but it was still fun. The new bishop is married to my best friend. She is also one of our Primary counselors. I have a feeling that I will have to find a new counselor. I am sad about that, but her husband is a great man and will be an excellent bishop.

They live right up the street, Sydney and Emily play with their kids all the time. Hannah occasionally gets talked into playing dolls with them, but she won't admit to enjoying it.

It is fun when a bishop changes. The new bishop has new goals and ideas and excitement. Our bishop will probably deploy in the fall, though. That will be hard for him, and his family, and his counselors, and the ward. Maybe he will not have to go after all.

There is so much change in our ward right now. In Primary, we need 3 teachers (maybe a counselor) and a pianist now, and in the fall (when the guys deploy) we will need 3 more. Two YW counselors, and 2 Elders Quorum counselors are also moving this summer, and one High Priest Group counselor just moved, and the other was just called as Bishop. I know everything will fall into place, but it does worry me a little.

Ahhhh... you are the Primary President - I feel the stress.... I'm an Enrichment Counselor. Our Primary Pres. lives down the street & comes over all the time - she is ALWAYS stressed. We live in a newly wed - nearly dead ward, and she has a hard time finding people to accept callings as teachers. I feel bad for her. :(

Congrats on the new Bishopbric! Ours had just changed right before we moved here. :)
