There are many definitions of what a family is. In our own lives, we have many types of family: our little family of four, our extended families, families we've adopted ourselves in to (thanks Momma Marilyn), and ward (church) families. Yesterday, while at church, we saw a true example of ward family. Troy took Peyton with him to Elders Quorum for the 3rd hour of church while I was in primary. We've let Peyton wander a bit because it's either that or SCREAM. I guess she wandered out of Troy's classroom and after a "few" minutes (Troy gets the good dad award) he wasn't quite sure where she was and started roaming the halls to find her. Turns out she went to the High Priest class that was being held in the chapel, walked to the front, climbed up on Brother Tomlinson's lap and went to sleep. There are so many odd things about this, first, she doesn't know Brother Tomlinson. I think he is a very nice man, I worked with him on the activity we did for Christmas last year, but that's about all I know about him. Second, Peyton very, very, very rarely falls asleep while ANYONE is holding her. Turns out Brother Tomlinson didn't know who's kid it was, but she wanted up and he was happy to oblige! After class was over, Troy went to retrieve his daughter and all was well. Peyton was happily rested so that she didn't have to go home and take a nap! It's nice to have such wonderful people that I can trust with my children and who take us in!
