...a crazy day and a half on an airplane coming home from Japan. Silly boy.
'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
Sam fertilizing the plants. Teague and Jeremy Clarissa and Gavin Primary kids and Pumpkins
We have planted a pumpkin patch in the church garden for so many years. Here are a few of my memories. What a fun time, and we have learned so much. There is always so much produce to share with the Relief Society sisters. Thanks to everyone who works so hard.
Ever noticed how kindergarten is the Caterpillar factory, turning our little ones into butterflies before our eyes. This little creature was found in Moab. Jeremy brought it back because his class is loving caterpillars and creating butterflies. Jeremy showing his daddy's collection of butterflies and insects. Ride-em-caterpillar: Best friends, Teague and Jeremy, and the Zoo!
This year Sam's class did the doors of Wasatch. Each child picked a door in the neighborhood and painted it. They sold shirts, and posters, to raise art money. Sam chose the Salt Lake Temple doors. Jeremy was in the play. He is the piglet on the right. Cute! Jeremy's class door. Sam's African masks: We love Wasatch Elementary!
Grandma Kathy plans the best Teddy Bear Picnics. This year we had it at Great-Grandpa and Great-Grandma's house.
THE SONG: ( I loved when Jeremy would sing "catch them in their underwears!)
If you go out in the woods today You're sure of a big surprise. If you go out in the woods today You'd better go in disguise.
For every bear that ever there was Will gather there for certain, because Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.
Picnic time for teddy bears, The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today. Watch them, catch them unawares, And see them picnic on their holiday. See them gaily dance about. They love to play and shout. And never have any cares. At six o'clock their mommies and daddies Will take them home to bed Because they're tired little teddy bears.
If you go out in the woods today, You'd better not go alone. It's lovely out in the woods today, But safer to stay at home. For every bear that ever there was Will gather there for certain, because Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic
Every teddy bear, that's been good Is sure of a treat today There's lots of wonderful things to eat And wonderful games to play Beneath the trees, where nobody sees They'll hide and seek as long as they please Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic
“You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences.” ~Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
