Monday, 1:43 a.m.


Our Stake Center burned to the ground on early Monday morning.  Which was completely surreal.  I had just been there the night before at a Stake Standards night. 

David and Caleb drove by on the way home from swim team and after viewing the charred remains Caleb said, "Is it the second coming?"

The girls, of course, heard on the bus on the way to school.  (Their little "network" is always up and running with the latest news.)  When they got home Savannah asked, with a little tremor, "Does this mean I can't get baptized?" 

I was as surprised at their tender comments as I was at the news of the fire.
