General Conference always feels like one of the signposts of the year and of my kids’ lives. We always talk about where we were last conference six months ago, or last year. We track how many conferences until our missionary comes home, we look at old photos and see how everyone has grown.
This year, not only did Conference and Easter fall on the same weekend, but we were lucky enough to have Stefan, Heather, Hans and Lizzy here every minute and Ben and Sammie most of the time. We were only missing Xander and he’s exactly where he needs to be. Spring Break fell the same weekend, so our neighborhood cleared out and we wandered the empty streets feeling like the only people in the world.
