Homecoming this year was alot of fun. Jarom's date was a candidate so he escorted her during the assembly, doing the dance and and all of the fun stuff that goes along with it. Of course Mom was so happy! It was good for Jarom to get out of his comfort zone and have some fun.
I had a hard time with the lighting in the auditorium and just couldn't get the lighting right. Oh well, the girls were beautiful and and the assembly was fun. They didn't make it to the dance because Jarom and his young men had planned to go to the General Priesthood Session in Salt Lake City, so they made other plans. It's pretty tuff when things fall on the same night, but Jarom really wanted to go with his young men, and it turned out to be such a good choice. The ym who had graduated last year met them in Salt Lake and they went to lunch and were able to watch the second session in the Tabernacle. They were in the stand-by line for the priesthood meeting but ended up sitting 15 rows back from the pulpit! Elder D. Todd Christofferson came and shook hands with them and visited for a second. Jarom was pretty excited and sent pictures to my phone. I am still so happy that he chose this trip over the dance, and to see how the Lord blessed him with a trip he will always remember. The spirit was so strong when the men were singing, he loved it. When he came in that night after the all day trip the first thing he said was 'my fun meter is expired'! meaning they had so much fun and laughed so much that there just wasn't anything left!!! He has the most awesome YM Pres. and the love he feels for him is only matched by my appreciation for such a great leader!
