As you all know, Dan and I were called into the nursery at the beginning of the month. We have been in there now 2 Sundays and we absolutely love it. I know a lot of people laugh and joke about being in the nursery, but it has been so good for us. Not only do we get to play with those sweet children who are so innocent and genuinely loving, but we have met a lot of people from our ward who we haven't really known very well until now.

We have always kind of felt like outcasts in our ward, which is interesting because many of the people in our ward are very much like us. Newly married, college couples. However because of that, everyone kind of does their own thing and we have only really had 1 couple who we've really made friends with.

Since being in the nursery, we have gotten to know a lot of the people who work down there; and while many of them have different situations than we do, they are all so down-to-earth like we are. We mesh with them so much better, and can actually sit and have conversations with them without feeling awkward. In our building, the primary is on the bottom of the 3 stories, and that's all that's down there. The chapel is on the middle floor along with most everything else, and then some of the primary classrooms are upstairs. So unless you have kids, or a reason to go downstairs, which we hadn't until a couple weeks ago.

We are so grateful for our callings and for the friendships we are making now after almost a year and a half of being in the ward!
