This past Thursday I was able to attend the 2010 Youth Conference with our young men and young women from church. I had a blast! I can’t wait for my kids to be 14 so they can have this fabulous opportunity. Such a great event, the spirit was amazing and the fun we had was (as Brenna would say) AWESOME! I love our youth, they set such a great example for those around them. It was very hard for me to leave my family for three days, REALLY HARD. I missed them every day. In the end though I had a great time and I know that I can bring the knowledge gained at conference home to them. It really was an amazing three days.
Here are some pictures that were taken while we were at conference…….
Of course I had to take advantage of the long line for dinner and give my favorite person a call…. just wish my phone call with Rodi hadn’t been captured by the camera…LOL Oh well.
This is our friend Kristy. We were so happy she could join us at Youth Conference!!!
See I wasn’t the only leader trying to stay connected *smile*
The Smithfield Branch Youth (plus our adopted youth Kristy and Paul) and their leaders
The pirate and the broken camera… so sorry Ruthie *sigh*
Oh how the girls will miss Paul……he was such a nice addition to our little group.
From one mom to antother…… sometimes it is hard to be away from our family at home, but what we can gain in that time apart can sometimes be priceless.
