Sunday lessons

This past Sunday our Bishop was talking about how the church has been trying to make sure the teachers teaching the lessons are teaching well. But the problem now is with the learners (in general). That we are not doing a very good job learning. At the moment I was sitting there, I realized how I fit so well under that category. I don't ever read the lessons before hand. I don't ever study up on the lessons.

... I must end off with reassuring you that I am going to change for the better in that area.

The drive to the beach

A view of a lighthouse

A hermit crab and a starfish that Jakey found

A big mound of mussels and starfish and anemone

We went to the beach with our extended russon family. We went to Ecola Beach along the Oregon Coast. It was said that it was going to rain, but it never did! It was pretty cool weather, but it doesn't stop kids from getting in the water.

It is when my children are in danger that I remember how precious they are to me. Ben had ash from the fire pop up and hit his neck. It was like no other burn I have ever seen. I am still worried about it, I hope he is okay.
