Nolan: (in a very sad voice) Mommy said we have to live in this house forever.
Dad: You don’t like this house? Where do you want to move?
Nolan: I want to go to college… at BYU.
Dad: Mommy & Daddy will live in this house forever, but you can move out and go to BYU.
Nolan: No! I want you to move to BYU with me!
I was trying to find something a little different than the usual ‘conference packets’ to keep my kids interested/busy and found this website. She uses flowers with the apostles names on them and a line for what the talk was about. After each talk, you can tape them up to the wall or a large poster to create a garden by the time conference is over! You then, after conference, encourage family members to ‘pick’ a flower and do something related to that flowers topic. What a great idea! Putting into action the things we’ve learned!
This was Gracie’s first year playing basketball. She LOVES it! She’s the Mark Eaton of 3rd grade girls basketball. She was at LEAST a foot taller than every girl on her team. She grew so fast, she still hasn’t quite lived up to her name! This was the only team they played against with girls as tall as her!
Nolan’s new favorite book is There’s a Wocket in my Pocket. He makes me read it every night. Tonight Gehrig sat with us a we read. After we were done Gehrig innocently said, “Daddy, there’s a WEENS in my JEANS.”
