Worth Waiting For

This is one of our kids favourite little movie clips they love to watch on Sundays... they also want us to do this for them... so it is in the pipeline for one of our family home evenings.
It's never too early to start talking about temple marriage with our kids. This video gives them a sense of the temple being something very special.


Awards and bombs

Anna-Maria is at the stage where she is taking everything in and asking lots of questions ...
what does accurate mean?
 what does mercy mean?
what does appreciate mean?

In family scripture reading we were discussing Matthew 16:27

For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

We talked about how we will be rewarded when Jesus comes again if we choose the right.

The next day, Anna-Maria said "I can't wait till Jesus comes so I can get my award".

Today I was singing the word "Beautiful Zion built above."

Anna-Maria asks "Why did Zion build a bomb?"

Anna-Maria's first day of school

Anna-Maria started school on Friday... funny day of the week to start, but that's what they did. She was so excited about putting her uniform on and was ready as soon as she got up... and trying to get out the door with lunchbow in bag, and backpack on by 7.30am. When we got to school she could hardly wait to get to her class - she had an extra 30 mins after the boys started school.
When we went into the classroom, she played blocks and did a few puzzles and settled in nicely. She had to find her name, and wear a badge with her name on.

Also Joshua has started trumpet lessons. He was inspired to play the trumpet after watching Elder Groberg on 'The other side of Heaven'. Now all the kids want to learn the trumpet too!
