I'm sitting in the very back of the overflow section of our chapel. Elli is draped all over me but is manageable since Graci packed food in the diaper bag. It was a pleasure to listen to Taylor blessing the sacrament a few minutes ago. After the sacrament was passed, Parker, who was serving as an usher, came back to sit with us. The very back row was full with Jesi, Graci, Sophi, Conner, Cali, and Xander, so Christi was sitting one row forward all by herself. Parker, a 15-year-old boy, could have chosen any of the 5 empty seats in that row, but he chose to sit right next to his mom. Now all 10 kids are sitting back here with us, helping us fill up these last two rows. I couldn't be much more grateful on this Father's Day.
