|didn't Erin do such an awesome job with|
she's the best secretary in the world!
Last week we pulled off the first official activity under our new presidency and I think it went really well. It was a learning experience for all of us, trying to coordinate and plan and prepare effectively without a true activities committee (yet) while still getting into the groove of our callings. We did a dinner and then had different sisters present little stories from the history of the RS in Lincoln (gathered from a book and other resources that Sister Noble, my second counselor, had accumulated over the years). Then a few sisters shared visiting teaching experiences where they've been blessed by being a visiting teacher or being visit taught, and we ended with a song about the mission of the Relief Society. The whole evening went pretty smoothly and it was so nice to see all the sisters mingling and having a good time.

|a fun and delicious visiting teaching brunch|
An example of how visiting teaching doesn't always have to be a home visit: my friend's daughter played in an orchestra concert so I took Natalie to go see her with me. Natsby didn't last the whole time but it was fun to introduce her to the music world and support my friend at the same time.
