Scripture Sunday

"Therefore ye must always pray unto the Father in my name; and whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name , which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall  be given unto you.  Pray in your families unto the Father, always in my name, that your wives and your children  may be blessed."  ~ 3 Nephi 18:19-21

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow’r thru-out the universe displayed;
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee,
How great thou art! How great thou art!

Swim Lessons - Update

Today was the last day of swimming lessons for Nick and Sam. 
Two weeks ago, Sam was signed up for Level 1 to start swimming lessons and Nick was unsure if he wanted to join in on the fun.  The first day of lessons, Nick decided to conquer his fear of drowning and joined the class.
From hesitation to conquering fears, both Nick and Sam completed Level 1 with pure awesomeness.
I am very proud of my children and I know they are quite pleased with themselves as well.

Great job, Kiddos :)

Swimming Lessons

Another first on their list...Nick and Sam started swimming lessons today.  They are excited and look forward to learning about water safety, kicking, blowing bubbles, holding their breath, forward strokes, back strokes, etc.

The lessons are for 2 weeks, 1/2 hour each day.  If all goes well, both Nick and Sam might sign up for the second session that begins on July 20th.
