Bulletin Boards

I had no idea that bulletin boards were so hard! It is taking me forever to get the seminary ones done. By the time I get them finished it will be time for next year to start. Auwe, here is the first one I finished - I am so happy with the way it turned out.

Does anyone have any ideas for this one? We are studying the New Testament.

One Craggy Mountain

That is one craggy Mountain!

So we all know that I have been whining about homework. Shantell (sorry, I spelled her name wrong on the last post) started this week and not only did all of the homework get done, there were no battles of will, no tears and a mom who is crying for happy reasons now. I am learning so much from this sweet teenager about patience and kindness. Thanks Shantell!

We are so excited for fall break... Two weeks in Utah with family and friends. I would love to see all my friends! So I think that on Monday, October 6th we should meet for lunch - any takers?

Hula Hands

This is a picture of the darling keikis (children) from my halau (hula school.) How precious is that?

Hooray for Prayers

I am so grateful that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers. Ever since Jackson started school, we have had a hard time doing homework together. Our personalities just rub (Jeff thinks that we are too much alike!) Anyway, the older he gets - 8 years now - the worse it gets. This year has been especially hard for me. One afternoon when I had finally sent Jack to his room, I knelt down to pray. (When all else fails...) and I had a very strong impression that I should call Chantel, one of the girls in my seminary class, and ask her if she would be willing to work with Jackson after school every day as a tutor. She was very excited about the prospect and Jackson is also very excited. But I don't think that either of them can even compare to the excitement I am feeling right now.

Anyway, just another little reminder that my Heavenly Father loves me.
