Devin got to work from home yesterday which helped in recovery from the long week we had last week!
banana boats for dessert and cooked them on the hot coals, just like camping.
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to PRESIDENT Thomas S. Monson!

I love this picture of him, he is 85 years old today and the president of our church.
Devin and I were given his biography, To the Rescue by Heidi Swinton, so we decided to read one of the chapters for Family Home Evening last night. We read "Starting a Family" which seemed appropriate since that is our stage in life. We read about him meeting his wife Frances, paying $25/month for rent, and the hard decisions he had to make that dealt with his job and opportunities to serve in the church. It really is a blessing to know that our Heavenly Father has a plan for us and if we rely on his timing that everything will work out for our good.
There was also a short story that we found pretty funny about him leaving to go on a fishing trip after his wife gave birth to their first child while she rested in the hospital for the next week! Apparently she encouraged him to go, but he says she did mention it here and there since it happened and looking back, feels that his timing was a little selfish.
All I know is that I hope I'm not in the hospital for a week and I'm glad it'll be November when fishing is not so popular.Pin It
