This morning I asked Lydia what she wanted to do today, and she suggested we go to a dinosaur museum. I just so happened to know that BYU has a museum of paleontology, and so after breakfast we headed over.
Then we went to Pier 1 because our shoe situation in the entry hall was desperate. I found this basket, and it has made the house feel so much more organized!
I also found the perfect piece for our fireplace, but we hung it at 10:30 pm and were rushing to get to bed, so I didn’t get a picture. My phone is out of memory, but if I can figure out how to fix that, I will take a picture tomorrow.
For FHE we headed over to our neighbors’ house down the street. The Bishops are an awe-inspiring family. You never know what people have suffered until you learn their story. Before our dinner with them, I just judged on appearance and figured they were leading and had always led a story-book LDS life. While they are absolute saints and could easily pass for story-book heroes…boy, was I wrong about my assessment! They have passed and are passing through things I could literally not imagine going through. Abe and I left in awe and wonder at their resilience.
We also had a great time. The kids and Abe played for hours in their pool. They keep it at ninety degrees, so no one got cold!
We finished off with Dairy Queen. The kids were so distracted by the Bishops’ pool and magical yard full of kid attractions that they barely ate any dinner. Then it was home to de-lousify everyone before bed, hang my new picture, and (for Abe) finish up his work day.
