sleepy Sunday

Lately, Sundays are bittersweet.  It's nice to be able to relax, but then Dan always has to leave to drive back to Dallas. 

We went to church and this was the first day I taught my new Primary class - the 9 year olds!  Overall, it went pretty well.

Today's photo of the day is our church building.  Dan and I joke that it just might be the oldest church building in Texas!
