I just couldn't leave this weekend without saying something. General Conference was today, and despite the fact that the antenna decided to act up through half of it, I really enjoyed it.
You know, you always (okay, sometimes) hear about how hard it is to watch conference with kids. And it is true, to a degree. They get bored, they get noisy. They are little and it is not in their attention span to sit still for two hours, especially for 4 times in 2 days. But at the same time, I love watching conference with my children. I love that when a picutre of the temple flashes on the screen my two year old yells out "Temple!" I love that my little girls used to come running into the room every time the choir started singing, just so they could dance to it. I love that we have discovered conference bingo (if you haven't done this, you must) and that my girls actually LISTEN to what is being said.
Thinking about it, I don't think that I would trade a noisy conference day with children for a day of quiet listening. Because I'm afraid those quiet days are going to arrive all to soon, and I am going to ache for the dancing girls and the bingo boards.
