Issue 96

Pinewood Derby

Daniel's winning car, The Money Racer, took third place and the bronze medal in the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby!

A Birthday and a Baptism

The big day finally arrived! When Janey blew out the candles at her seventh birthday party she exclaimed, "Yes! Only one more year until I get baptized!" It has literally been a year count down for her. I have never seen anyone more excited. She danced and sang and twirled all day in anticipation. Steve was afraid he would be able to immerse her, she was so bubbly. Both sets of Grandparents, Great grandma, Aunts, Uncles and cousin galore show up to show their support and celebrate Janey's big day. When she came up out of the water she giggled with shear delight and innocence. She also tackled fasting for the first time today and bore her testimony in Sacrament meeting. We are so very proud of her!

The Jazz and the Grizz

This was the week of professional sports for Daniel and Dad. Daniel won Jazz Basketball tickets as a door prize at a dyslexia conference, so they got to go see the Jazz beat the Celtics this week. Daniel also earned Grizz Hockey tickets from selling his scout-o-rama tickets and that game happened to be this week too. They had fun being together, but both agreed they preferred Basketball to Hockey.
