Parenting Seminars with Elder Ballard andThe House ROCKS!

Thanks to Saydi putting on the great slide show of the reunion and Eli the great Bear Lake music AND somebody who put on the "In the World" slideshow that I used in a talk recently, the eyrealm blog is moving right along!

This week we made some real progress on the house! The rock is going on! Also the concrete will be here at the end of the week, the plumber may show up someday to get us some water and the tile will be all oredered by tomorrow. I'm sitting on our bed in our bedroom which is being infested by...of all things...mosquitoes! We thought that plague was over for the summer but they're finding somewhere to "nest" are are really enjoying us!

Tonight we did two Parenting Seminars with Elder Ballard out in West Valley. It was a six stake event and we had about 800 at 5:00 and 750 at 7:30. Of course everyone came to catch a glimpse of and hear from Elder Ballard, but we had a lot of fun with the audience and were grateful for his support and time to sit through two whole sessions. We tried to commit everyone who weren't members to hand in referral cards so the missionaries could follow up because no one was supposed to show up without an investigator or less-active. We'll see what comes of it. Eli was the star because after we ragged on him all night we surprised them by having him come up and bear his testimony. He had them really laughing and did a great job of proving that a fiesty kids turns out pretty darn great! We sure weren't Gladys Knight but we hope we did a little good along the way!

Hope you're all having a great week!
