So, Saturday night was the first annual Surprise AZ LDS prom.  It was amazing.  It looked so beautiful.  We were all so proud of how it turned out. We personally thought it was at the greatest spot right by the lake and that everything turned out just as we had hoped.
 One of the kids wrote on Facebook this morning that it was "like a prom in the movies."  Do  you know how great that makes you feel as a leader?  I know the kids have no idea the time or energy that goes into something like this.  I know I didn't as a kid.  But when a statement like that is made it makes all the hard work worth it.  I'm so thankful to Valarie and Annette and Sasha and Kristin and everyone else who put in countless hours to make this night a success.  And it really was just that - success.
I couldn't be more proud of our kids.  They were all dressed so modestly in amazing dresses and they danced and laughed and had a good time.  I am glad that there was a place for them to have a dance that lived up to their standards.  They want to be good and to be surrounded by goodness.  They are an amazing generation.  I love them so much!
