Starting the New Year

Wahoo! 2012 is here! Out with the old, in with the new!

I love the promise of a fresh start that the new year holds!

We are hoping our kids will be a little more reverent during scripture study this year. Usually the boys try wrestling everyone or at least each other while we read, it can get a little wild. They've also been known to actually ripe pages out of the scriptures. So we decided to give the boys each a brand new copy of the Book of Mormon and made a big deal about it being their own, hoping that maybe they would take some ownership and maybe...eventually...even sit quietly and follow along. =) We can always dream right?!
Well we're a good week into it and they haven't really sat quietly yet unless their asleep, but they sure are proud of their scriptures! While they were having their snack earlier this week Ridge climbed down from his bar stool ran off and came running back with their scriptures. He handed one to Nash climbed back up and started flipping through it. It was adorable. They've been packing their scriptures around like they do their toys. I find them in the crib, in the toy box and in the bathtub. I am glad they love their scriptures. I hope they always do!

That's right boys, feast upon those words and you'll never hunger!
