Today was the first day of Seminary and only 159 days to go! I kid. But seriously, things went as well as can be expected especially since I don't feel like I am quite in the groove yet.
I arrived early and began setting up only to realize that I had left my nicely typed lesson plan at home along with other things I was going to chat with the students about. FAIL. But I wrote a few things down quickly and figured I could probably wing it pretty well.
Some of my favorite things that happened:
One student wanting to stand for the class. I made him sit down with the rest of us.
Two of my freshmen who like to giggle like girls--together. They may be getting separated one of these days. We will see how tomorrow goes.
Singing "As Zion's Youth in Latter Days" with Zion's youth.
Talking about becoming a Zion class.
I think its going to be a great year and I am looking forward to many more adventures in the coming weeks.
