Snake!!

Yesterday Katheryne was playing on the swings in the back yard. Lynn was back there also. Katheryne as she was swinging a snake (it was just a bull snake) crawled out from under a wagon in the backyard. She screamed so loud that it got Lynn’s attention. As Lynn looked out at Katheryne she was shooting up the ploes of the swing set. Lynn said she had never seen Katheryne move so fast. By the time Katheryne looked around from her perch the snake was slithering out of the yard.

Pictures of our tile floor

Here are the pictures that I promised you.

Here is a picture of the tile that we laid in the study.

This is the ceramic tile now that it is finished and it looks very great and the neighborhood really likes how it looks.

And finally here is a picture of the play room:

The children love the playroom floor now. It is a big open room and it is coming close to being done. We have all the electrial done so now we will be putting in the pellet stove and a little bit of trim and the room will be done.

I made it to church!

I thought about it all morning and decided that I would try to make it to church. Lynn was quite excited at the thought. Being sick had made it quite hard to go. I now realize that highway 6 is a real crummy road. I knew that riding in the car bothered me but the ride on such a bad road REALLY bothered me.

Priesthood was not really interesting, or I was still getting over the car ride, one of the two. Sunday school turned into a church history lesson, I think it was supposed to be about succession in the presidency. The teacher started off with the talks of Sidney Rigdon and Brigham Young from the meetings when Brigham took on the countance of Joseph. I noticed that Brigham really changed from being an apostle to the leader of the church. The lesson made me think alot about seminary when I taught the D&C. Before that year in seminary I always saw Brigham as the gruff and tough leader that brought the pioneers across the plains and set up Salt Lake. But I really saw a diferent side of Brigham in the way he was around Joseph. In the lesson the teacher read from the journal of Brigham Young, Lynn was interested in the numbers of people that received their endowments the days leading up to the exodus from Nauvoo. The teacher made the point that the saints needed those temple blessings before making the trek west.

Sacrement meeting was a marathon of keeping small children happy, content, awake and not killing each other. Daniel had had enough of church he was done just as sacrement meeting started. He just had to move, yell and wiggle. The funny thing was that the nursery leader was sitting right in front of us and said he had been a compleate angel for the last two hours. Proof that I like Sacrement meeting first instead of last. To keep Daniel busy during the Sacrement I asked him to find Walker (who was passing the sacrement). As soon as hed did he would not quit yelling out Walker’s name, over and over and over again. It was funny to see walker change all colors of red though.
