Veteran's Day

This Veteran's Day was a special day for us. Kyle's 2nd grade class did a wonderful program honoring veterans and this special country we live in. Kyle got to enjoy his status as a cubscout by leading the flag ceremony. He had it all memorized, spoke very clearly, and did a great job. We were so proud! The class sang many songs about this country, they had a Lt. Colonel come and give a small talk, and did a "photo montage" on the military service of our country set to music. It was very moving. I ended the night by singing with the American Festival Chorus at a tribute to the Veterans which was VERY well attended. I love patriotic music. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Kyle got baptized on October 31, 2009. Yes, on his birthday! It was a small gathering, of us, some of his grandparents, a family friend and his primary class. The Bishop gave a wonderful talk, and it was a very special day. Not to mention hectic. The baptism in the morning, his birthday party that afternoon, and trick or treating that night. WHEW!
