General Conference

This is the time of year that I always look forward to. We get to spend the weekend as a family listening to the prophet and other leaders of the church (including apostles, seventies, and the women leaders in the church).Yes, we do have a living prophet on the Earth today!

It is a time to renew our commitment to Christ and to find answers to questions that have been plaguing us for the past 6 months.  I always love conference and this year Rico is old enough to somewhat pay attention to it. We are going to have pictures of the leaders and different activities or treats for each speaker. We are also thinking of having key words for each session (such as Jesus, Holy Ghost, President Monson, etc) and if Rico hears the word he can get a special treat. Anyway, the possibilities are numerous and I'm excited to make conference fun for him.  I'm also excited to feel calm and be directed for the next 6 months.

Conference should be broadcast on one of the regular television channels. The sessions are Saturday and Sunday from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.  You can also listen and watch it live here in 16 different languages:

If you miss it, you can watch it later or read the talks!

Concentrating with Scissors

I have been wanting to let Rico use scissors for awhile now but time is passing by quickly and getting filled with other things. This morning the opportunity arose and we went for it. I think a couple of more times of practicing and he will do great; not that he did badly this time.  I was reading about allowing the child to concentrate and to not interrupt, which was a reminder i needed.
