Thank You

Thank you for all your great comments and ideas about girl's camp. Our girl's camp will be July 30, 31 and August 1 so if you think of anymore wonderful ideas before then let me know. Our theme is Steadfast Like the Stars so we are looking for any quotes, craft ideas or stories that are associated with stars. Thank you for all of your help.

Have a great day!

Keep On Treking

Jim, Emily, Whitney and I participated in our stake youth trek this past week along with 110 other youth and adults from our stake. We pushed handcarts for 20 miles over three days and slept under the stars. I really gained more of an appreciation of the things the pioneers had to go through. The road was a four wheeler trial so we did see a few "civilized" people along the way. A group of ATV riders saw us and wondered what all these Pilgrims were doing. Emily said that people were probably wondering what the polygamists were doing on vacation. We were all sore when we got home and glad to take a shower but I think it was a great experience we will never forget.

Girls Camp Ideas?

Hey, all you girls and former young women. What is your most memorable girl's camp experience? I am trying to think of some wonderful, fun ideas for our girl's camp at the end of the month and I need your ideas. I also need ideas for cute handouts and sayings. Thank you, Have a great day, Annette

What's New?

Jim- Passed his EMT test and is now a certified EMT. (I will try not to get to upset when the pager wakes me up at 2:00 am)

Annette (me)- Getting ready for the pioneer trek and girls camp in July.
Zach- Loves his job at Verizon and adopted a little green friend (iguana)
Josh- Should be seeing clearly by the time he leaves on his mission in September. He had surgery on Wednesday for a detached retina

Matt- Up to his old tricks (some things never change). During a room inspection the inspectors found bottles Matt had taped together(because he was bored) and thought they were bombs. After bringing the bomb dogs in to check things out the inspectors finally decided Matt was harmless.
Emily- We always know where she is either at work or with Logan.

Whitney- Had fun at Summer Games in Ceder City and is still swimming strong.

Amy- Wants to move to Forks, Washington in hopes to get kissed by a Vampire (If you don't understand this you might want to read Twilight).

Michael- Did a cute little dance when he received a second place in the Freestyle at the Summer Games.
