Surviving the Hurricane

This weekend we have been busy. We have the pleasure of being in the company of the Kunz family. They are in town on business. I will write more about our visit tomorrow. For now, I just want to say how wonderful it is to have someone with you in the storm.

Today we spent the afternoon at the Lied Children's Museum. I convinced Britt to come join me in the surviving the hurricane exhibit. Here is our best photo from the fun.
Here are Lauren and Annie and I on the left and Mikenna and Britt on the right. Now I am off to play some games with these new friends.  Rook anyone?

I am Brittany's friend. I've known her since high school. I just wanted to thank you for the support you have been to her. I've tried to be there but you can truly empathize with her. Thanks for helping ease her pain and for being a good friend.

Rook?! That's my favorite game. Too bad I don't live anywhere near you. We can't find anyone to play it with us.

It sounds wonderful to have someone with you who can truly empathize with you and understand what you are going through. I'm glad you have this tender mercy.
P.S. love rook!

Wish I lived nearby. I'd love to play a game of Rook, it's a family favorite!

Steph,

In RS today I shared how you could feel Camille's spirit in the hospital...how she was a full and complete spirit...how you feel like you were very close in the pre-existence and chose to be her mother knowing she would leave you so soon.

i think it helped drive the point home to the class that we are loaned these spirits by their father, Heavenly Father, and that we must respect them and treat them as such. I think it definitely brought the spirit to the lesson.

love you!

I am so glad that both of your families have each other to survive your storms together, what comfort that must be. I hope you guys have a blast, you both deserve many moments of it.
