I've said it many times before and I'll say it again: semi-annual General Conference weekends are two of my favorite weekends of the whole year! October's was no exception, and it was particularly welcome given all the unrest that had been happening since the last Conference in April. Receiving guidance and inspiration from the prophet and our church leaders was truly a healing balm to my soul.
The boys were cooperative and they listened pretty well. I met them halfway on some things and let them be on screens during the Saturday sessions as long as they were listening, but they couldn't be on them when President Nelson spoke. I had them watch the Saturday morning session but I let them decide if they wanted to do the Saturday afternoon session. The Sunday sessions are mandatory, and screens are not allowed. 😁
I made a crockpot pot roast for dinner with carrots from the garden and potatoes. The roast came out particularly tender and delicious, and the carrots were bursting with flavor. I was so glad, especially because it was one of Boo Boo's last special meals (he and Violet always get the scrumptious fatty leftovers). It was a great weekend, and I already can't wait for the next one in April.
