Last Monday was President's Day. Dad and John both had it off so we decided to all get together and do something fun. We had planned to go to this awesome playground up in Gallatin but the weather turned a little too cool to enjoy a day at the park. So we went to plan B - Bowling.

The kids had never been bowling before and it had been years since John and I had been. I was pitiful. Apparently Wii bowling does not prepare you for actual bowling.

The kids did a great job.

Tyler was terrified of getting close to the line and making it buzz. We eventually got a ramp for him to use. The girls did a great job.

I think Tyler was more excited about watching the ball come back into the ball return than actually rolling the ball down the lane.

Final Scores:

Me: 47
Tyler: 51
Karena: 54
Hannah: 56
John: 69
Dad: 103
Mom: 115

Tyler's 1st Scripture

Tyler was asked to read his first scripture in Primary today. He wanted John to help him. I was very impressed with how well he did. He spoke clearly and not too loud into the microphone. He didn't appear nervous at all. Here is what he had to read:

"That the arights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be bcontrolled nor handled only upon the cprinciples of righteousness." Doctrine and Covenants 121:36

Notice the hard words like "inseparably" and "righteousness." He did fine with those words. Want to know the word he struggled with? Upon. He kept saying dupon. He was too cute.

I am so proud of him. He can't wait to do another one.
