Fathers Day with the kids! Jackie called - It was the first time for steve to have one of his children call him instead of being here! We miss her!
Our Stake went on a Trek this last week. Steve was the trail boss and I was the photographer. Derek was our only child that came. Lauren was too old, Grace & Savannah were too young. Savannah spent the week in Utah at Basketball camp and at her cousins! When I asked her how the week went she said " It was a Lot of Basketball!" Maybe I should have explained that at Basketball camp you play basketball! hehehehe I love that girl! Lauren entertained grace for the week and they did everything from making tie dye shirts to riding bikes to get a snow cone! They went to see the Lippanzaner dancing horses and grace was a little dissappointed the horses didn't do back flips or anything! hahaha I guess I really need to talk to my children about there expectations before they go to stuff!
The trek was so hard! It looked just like Wyoming and hot and windy and we even had rain! Steve gave about 10 talks and they were all great! He gave a great spirit to the trek! We came home totally exhausted and sunburnt! This is our second Trek Steve and I have gone on with the youth and everytime I can gain such a great respect for the Pioneers! I am also blown away by our incredible youth! I came home knowing "I CAN DO HARD THINGS!" One of my favorite talks Steve gave was to the YW about Virtue and he said "the Iron rod does not go through the Great and spacies building!" It gave me a chance to look at my life and see where I could to do better! Another thing that was great to think about he said was "Because a boy prayed . . . . . . ." I am so thankful for this gospel and that I get to be a part of it!
Thought I better document this - Derek writing in his journal
We started out so clean!!
Our Stake Flag - Lauren made it for us!
