7 My son [or daughter], peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment;
8 And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes.
9 Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands.
Each Branch/Ward was asked to make a flag. We decided to go with a cute owl theme. Our flag has lots of colorful, unique owls on a lovely tree. The flag will read, "Albany Branch YW" and "Hang Onto WHOOO You Are.". Cuteness! Aren't we creative?!
Because we are so awesome, we have also made shirts that are ADORABLE! The following is my shirt. But note that each is a different color scheme, decorated by each unique individual. Appliques, embroidery floss, buttons... Our ladies are artists!
Okay... so I should have ironed the shirt. But you get the general idea, right?!
There are a few days left to do our packing and the last bit of planning. This is gonna be a BLAST!
Sarah and Kaleigh at the Kansas City Temple
Some of the girls were able to visit her in the hospital last Sunday. It was so wonderful to see her smile! Visiting with her and seeing her be so positive was such a blessing. We are so grateful to have such a good example of courage and faith. Kaleigh, you are very loved by us all!

Here is a youtube video of the song with words. Beautiful!
As a special treat, Kenneth Cope sang "Broken" for the portion about the Joplin Recovery. Here's a youtube of that song.
As amazing as the entire performance was, I was even more amazed after speaking to my husband. Basically all that day had been completely chaotic. First off, the venue was planned for 1500 kids. By the performance date 3600 kids wished to perform! Over 500 had decided to join in on the fun within the last week. And the kids never actually were able to do a complete run-through of the performance, due to many factors. Their dress rehearsal was their performance! But you could not tell. They did so well!
Way to go: Kayleigh, Sarah L, Blayre, Zane, Sarah P, and Sariah!
Here's a LDS Church News Article about the performance, etc.
