Lindsey is away at EFY this week

Lindsey is in San Antonio this week at Trinity University for a BYU sponsored week of EFY (Especially for Youth) and is rooming with her best friend from Colorado, Mindi. The two of them have been so excited about spending the week together and the time is finally here. We grabbed a quick lunch at Whataburger before I took the girls to check in at the dorms. Check out the cricket crawling around on the floor under Lindsey's bench. It adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the meal. (I'm sure my French is misspelled here....)
Staying in a college dorm for these two fifteen-year olds is so liberating! They were so happy to be there. I hope they're having a fun week. We'll pick them up on Saturday morning.
This was the name tags on their door of their dorm. Christopher thought it looked like a lot of fun and already has picked out who he wants to room with in five years when he's old enough to go to EFY.

EFY....good times for sure! I hope she enjoys every minute, not only having fun, but having her testimony grow as well. :)

Ahh the dorms did seem so appealing to those that don't actually have to LIVE there. I think that I was so excited to stay in them too. What a fun and great experience for her.

How fun! I looooved EFY. It was such an impressionable time for me and I'm so glad I was blessed to go.

What fun for Lindsey. I am sure she will have a blast. I miss her and teaching her, they were a very fun group of girls!
I'm so glad she got to go. EFY is such an uplifting and inspired program. I bet she loved it and will never forget it!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
