That was too fast...

September has come and gone in a blink of an eye.  So much happened this month:

  • Lessons
  • Birthdays - Scott, Nick, Sam, and 4 chickens.
  • Samantha's baptism
  • Library days
  • Meeting with the missionaries
  • Sick days
  • Colors changing on the trees
  • Cool days and nights
  • Dinner with new friends
Crazy how this year is flying by.

Scripture Sunday

The following scripture was read during one the talks during sacrament meeting this afternoon.   

"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have not power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." ~ Helaman 5:12

Happy Anniversay, Mom and Dad!

I am so thankful that 52 years ago you two feel in love on your blind date, got engaged on your second date and married 4 months later.  In those 52 years, you were parted by a war, moved several times, and raised 3 children.  From the three of us, you now have 7 grandchildren (3 that are married and one that is about to get married) and 4 great grandchildren.

Happy 52nd Anniversary Mom and Dad!!!  We love you so much!!!

September already!?!?

The other day I was planning on doing a 'farewell to August' post and just realized that we are now in September.  This year is flying by too fast and needs to slow down just a wee bit.

August was full of school lessons, life lessons and fun. We ended August on a good note...a field-trip to Montshire Museum to see Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex.  Nick and Sam are still talking about it and hope that other people will have the opportunity to see her.

September is a busy month for us...lessons, birthdays, a baptism and getting ready for a trip out west.  Now I just need to 'stop and smell the roses' :)
