Early Morning Seminaryby Angie

My already high esteem for the youth of our ward and stake has been kicked up another notch today because for the first time in my life I did something that they do all year round: left the house before 6:30am to go to early morning seminary. I was substituting for Mary Coolbear, a friend in our ward who teaches the 15-year-olds (that’s 10th grade, right?). I knew about a third of the kids in the class, and they were all just fantastic. A little chatty, of course, as teenagers tend to be, but very polite and helpful to me as a substitute (it also helped that a couple of the boys know and really admire my husband). No one was more than five minutes late, and everyone was wide awake though the entire class. I was very impressed!
