Have we got a plan for you!

Our stake's first pioneer trek was designed to give the kids a REAL pioneer experience, down to the menu: gruel, grub and mush. The kids hated it.

But it built character!

The road to recovery

One of the things I like about the Book of Mormon is when the authors describe the Lamanites. Usually it's something like "bloodthirsty, indolent, ferocious" or something along those lines. What I like about that is that it shows the prejudices that the writers had toward the Lamanites. I'm sure not all of them were bloodthirsty and indolent. They talk about how the Lamanites have been taught to hate the Nephites, but they seem to do a fine job of passing on their preconceptions as well.

Out in the weeds

Be careful what you ask for!

From the garden

Happy Father's Day!

In my lovely garden

There are often interesting things that turn up in our garden — pencils, cans, toys, bones — and I know I didm't put them there. Of course that's partly due to the fact that the garden faces the street. The worst was when I found my neighbor's car in there...but that's another story!

Summer spoils

Nothing says vacation like a list of chores!
