Day 1

Brett left this morning to go to the Scout camp in Boundary Waters Minnesota. He'll be gone ten days. This morning Jethro was saying the blessing and I reminded him to say please bless daddy, and he said, "Please bless daddy to not get bitten by a snake or a lion, and please help him to come home safe and that he won't get bitten by an eel or a shark." Amen.

Then Jethro was saying that he was so hungry and he said, "I'm as hungry as a hippopotamus!" and Hazel said, "And I'm as hungry as a PINK hippopotamus!" It was so funny.

Then Jethro said, "Do prophets eat?" and I said yes, and he said, "Then what did the guy that talked to the bad guys eat?" and I didn't know what he was talking about, so I said what? and he said "The guy that had to be fed for several days." And I remembered that we had read in the Book of Mormon about Sherem in the Book of Jacob, who denies Christ and demands a sign, and then is smitten and fell to the earth and it says that he had to be fed for many days (that's what it said in the illustrated version that we were reading---in the BOM it says he was nourished for the space of many days). So funny what kids pick up on.

Well, I'm off to try to be productive at least a little bit. I often find that difficult when I know Brett's not going to be home. Anyway, that's all for now.

When John isn't going to be home for several days I must admit I don't do as much cleaning as I ought to and then I try and cram it all in on the last day adn try to get it done before he gets home.
Too funny!

I am jealous of Brett. Is he going to Scout Camp or are they doing the 50 Mile Canoe Trip? The boundary waters is a place that I really want to go to. BTW, this is Steven not Katrina (not that Katrina isn't jealous)

you probably do not remember me (that well) this is Kami's friend, Maria, from good 'ol Willard. Anyway, I just wanted you to know, that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog! You make me laugh so hard sometimes, that I have to take an unexpected trip to the ladies room :) Anyway, I have enjoyed seeing recent pictures of your family (mom and dad, etc) and have enjoyed reading about your own little family. Although, you got married two months before me and you are two kids ahead of me. Hmmmm. I will have to see what I can do about that -- but that's another story. Thanks for the laughs!!!

Hello, I've really had a fun time reading your blog, don't ask how I stumbled upon it cuz I really couldn't tell you. I love those little headbands you made and am planning to make them for new babies and nieces...I also loved your storie about the BoM. If you've got time stop on by my blog and read my funny story "kids say the darndest things" about "Rick". If you stop by you'll figure it out. Thanks for sharing.
