Stephen, Anne, talks in church and trees

Stephen was set apart as the secretary in the Priest's quorum today. It was great to be a part of that.

Along with being very proficient at the Oboe and always sitting down and playing a wide variety of music on the piano, Anne has taken up playing the ukulele (and singing) and is getting really good at it.

A couple of comments in the Sacrament mtg. talks made me chuckle today. There was a couple that had returned from a mission in Bermuda. (which oddly enough is part of the New York, New York City South mission) In speaking about senior couples serving on missions, they were told by a general authority that the were asking couples to "Lengthen their shuffle".
Also, in Bermuda there is a sandwich shop that is owned by a member of the church and there is a fish sandwich on the menu called "The Elder" because whatever it was called before was the consistent choice of the missionaries that frequent their shop.

We worked hard yesterday as lumberjacks. We have bugs in our trees and had to cut down 8 trees yesterday. They were from 40 to 60 feet tall. It was quite a sight to see them fall and a lot of work to get them cleared away. My family is awesome.
