April Scripture Song

You'd be surprised of the things you can think up when you spend so many hours sitting, feeding a baby. We are all doing well. Macy is sleeping, the boys are outside in the (finally) nice spring weather, I am waiting for some lasagna noodles to boil, Mark is at work, and Leslie is at school. She has the big 2nd grade talent show today. They had their in-class show/tryout thing on Wednesday and she was one of three from her class that got picked to perform again today for a group of all 8 2nd grade classes. The little ham is singing a funny song called "Mama's Soup Surprise". I hope she doesn't get too nervous and forget the words. She is excited because she thinks this time she gets to use a mike. My little American Idol. precious.

So, we are learning 2 Nephi 31:20, to the tune of my favorite hymn, "Now Let Us Rejoice", and once again, the whole thing came together with the first song I thought of.

Wherefore ye must press fo-orward
with a steadfastness
in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope,
And a lo-ove of Go-od
and o-of al me-en
Wherefore, if ye shall press
forward feasting upon...
the word o-of Chri-ist
andendure to the e-end
beho-old thus saith the Fa-a-ather,
_ _ Ye-e shall ha-ave Ete-ernal Li-ife.
That's Se-e-co-ond Nephi thirty-one verse twenty.

You really have talented kids Jackie. We had a great time with you guys today. I loved it when Leslie said to Jared at the dinner table, "Come play when you're done eating, if you're ever done eating that is." Haha! Happy Easter again and we sure love your little ones.

That's is actually part of family scripture. We include verse 19. It's so awesome to hear our little kids quoting that long scripture. But they (for the most part) can do it. By the way Macy is darling.
