What a Beautiful Week!

It has been sunny and warm (50-55 degree highs). The kids have been playing outside every afternoon without coats, and we went to the park yesterday. We met up with a bunch of hippie, organic eating, raw milk drinking, unschoolers and had a lot of fun. I think I may be turning into one. Maybe I already have.

Robinson Crusoe Teaser #1

#1--I'm not sure whether that means there will be more to come or not. Jessi, Jacob, and Sarah (Joseph was sick) were in the Missoula Children's Theatre play "Robinson Crusoe" last week. The dad that videoed the play put this on you tube today. Can't wait to get the full, clear dvd!

The Hinckley Challenge

From the website:

The challenge begins in 1 day!
President Hinckley often stressed our making the Book of Mormon part of our lives. He was 97 when he passed away, and we would like to celebrate his life and teachings by reading the Book of Mormon in 97 days.

As of today, you must read 5.42 pages/day to finish by May 11, 2008

This week...

Stephen, Shane, and Jessi had a wonderful time at the Rexburg Temple Open House last week. They talk about it for 3-4 days. The boys did not sleep before they had to leave at 2:15 am. I feel sorry for the leaders. Jessi slept at least a little.

Jessi and Stephen have been taking a class for the last month at the Museum of the Rockies on Montana history with one of the curators. This week was the last in the series, and they both are sad. They wanted it to keep going for a few months, not a few weeks. I talked to the instructor, and she said she was working on another class but it wouldn't be ready until April. Something to look forward to.

I am doing sharing time this week. I decided to do it on Pres. Hinckley and how a new prophet is chosen. We have quite a few convert families in our ward. I'm sure some of the parents don't understand how this happens since it hasn't since they were baptized, and wouldn't be able to teach their children. Hopefully we will have some good discussion (at least with the senior primary).
