Morning Glory helped us choose a quote to use from Elder Oaks' latest conference talk. She also made the poster for us to put on the back of the front door. We have used this quote as the theme for our last two Family Home Evenings.
Last week we were able to go to Morning Glory's graduation and reflect on how fruitful her 7 years at her school have been. She worked very hard and earned many awards including: "most improved" in choir, "Excellence" in math, and the High honor roll for her exceptional grades. She spent lots of time helping others as she was a teacher aid in violin and for second grade students. She was a good friend to many, especially any she noticed sitting alone. She especially loved orchestra. When we got back home, we enjoyed healthy cherry pie bars which Lady Slipper especially planned and helped prepare (they are made with white sweet potato crust).
This week we took time to read a "for little friends" story from the Friend called "Marta's Garden" and then hunt for some hidden pictures of bananas, garden tools and other fruits and veggies. (Starflower enjoyed tearing up an old magazine and then pointing out the pictures on the section she had torn). One of my favorite memories is when Lady Slipper happily explained that "by their fruits ye shall know them" means that we "eat lots of healthy stuff!" Then MG chose bananas as our treat.
Thanks all of you for lots of FHE memories,
