Thursday thought

Some people are alive only because it’s illegal to kill them.

Wednesday Rewind

Here is another mission picture. Elder Carter and I are in the projects in South Newark. This was the location of the twig, which is part of the Spring Garden Branch.

Wednesday Rewind

This was October 2001 General Conference weekend. This was the crew from the Spring Garden Branch that was headed to the Priesthood session. This was, as I recall it was a great session and an awesome group.

The week to come

I can hardly believe that I am only two weeks into the school semester and I am already wondering how I am going to be able to do it all. This week for some reason has me feeling extra overwhelmed. Maybe it is Eston starting preschool. Maybe it is me starting subbing again. Maybe it is me working on my first story for Weber State News.
Whatever it is, I can not believe that I am already feeling that way. I am hoping that it is just a temporary feeling that will go away at the end of the week. Furthermore, I have full confidence that I will be able to get through it with no problems.
Normally when I get this feeling, we only have one or two weeks left in the semester. Usually, it is not this soon. Also, it normally ends up turning out to be great. That is why I am not worried. Plus, if I do not have these feelings and fight through it for victory, what am I paying Weber State to learn anyways?

Wednesday night Cheri and I took Eston to his first ever "Back to School Night." He is starting preschool next week and got to go check it our and talk to his teacher. He was very excited to see the classroom, but more excited when he looked in the backyard and saw the trampoline and slide.
When we got there, the teacher had a nice little gift for each of the kids and Eston absolutely loved it. It was a colored cup with a pencil, eraser and number line. She also had some treats on the table for everybody to partake of and that too made Eston extremely excited. He scarfed down the brownie spilling crumbs all over the floor.
After we went to meet the teacher, we stopped to get dinner. Carson was at Grandma and Grandpa's so it was just Eston with Cheri and me. It was there at dinner that I realized how quickly he has grown up and how proud I am  to be his dad. He is such a good kid and has so much ahead of him. I just hope he doesn't let anybody stop him from doing and getting what he wants in life.
