Well today was the day...the first time I slammed my sweet little guys fingers in the car door. It absolutely made me sick. We had to run to Walmart to pick up some last minute supplies for Achievement Day that we were having at our house. On the way home Boston was screaming because she was getting hungry and tired of being in her car seat…she hates it! So we got home and I got Logan out. Then walked around the car to free Boston…I grabbed my purse that I had set on the ground and noticed that Logan was trying to get into the front door where the Walmart bags were…I had bought him the “Mator” toy , his favorite movie right now is “Cars”. He was excited to get it in the house and out of the box. Just as I finished saying “are you so excited to play with Mator?” and he said “YES!” with a HUGE smile on his face…then that’s when it happened…I shut the car door where Boston sits not knowing that Logan’s other hand was in between the two doors. As soon as I shut it I noticed his little fingers and quickly opened it. Oh the poor little guy tried to be tuff but he just couldn’t. His hand was shaking and big crocodile tears just rolled down his face instantly. I felt so horrible. I quickly picked him up, grabbed Boston, and headed inside. Boston was still screaming at the top of her lungs but I had to focus on Logan for a minute. His fingers started swelling in no time and turning black & blue. It even cut the skin. Needless to say he was no longer excited about “Mator”! He just wanted to hold teddy, drink some milk, and watch “Cars”….he fell to sleep within 15 minutes! I’m so sorry…

I don’t think I have shared this…I recently got called to be an Achievement Day Leader…yeah! I am working with the 8-9 yr. old girls. I am partnered with a great woman who just moving into our ward, but is from Rexburg. We have had one activity already; Pennies by the Inch. We were so worried that it wouldn’t be very “fun” for the first activity and it had to be done soon, so we really had no choice. I realized that it doesn’t take much to make 8-9 year old girls have a blast. We rehearsed with them what they needed to say then drove them around the neighborhoods. They did so well. We ran out of fliers and they were begging to keep going. These girls are going to keep me young! We had our second achievement day today at my house. We developed talents by learning a craft...magnet boards! They had a lot of fun making their magnets and were very particular of the paper they chose...they had to match exactly & look good in their rooms! The girls all discussed where they were going to hang them.
I am so excited for this new calling! These girls are so amazing and teach me so much. I love working with them.
