An Other Trip to Enchanted Forest

We got an other chance to play at Enchanted Forest.  This time Ray and Kimber came to play with Case and Lillian while worked with the cast of the children show there.

Lillian, though excited that she could go through the Log Ride by herself, didn't want to go unless Ray went with. While they waited in line, Case and Kimber waited on the observation deck for them. Case must have been hungry because he was licking and chewing on the metal fence that keeps people from crossing into the ride area. That's a 2 year old for ya. He really wanted to go with Ray and Lillian on this ride as well. But he is too little. Luckily, Ray and Lillian did have fun getting wet though.

Ray even took Lillian on the bumper cars.  Never too early to learn how to drive I guess.

And he took her "shooting"  I think the gun looks bigger than she is.  The fun was hard for her to hold. Ray made every shot. While they did that Case and Kimber went through "Mc-Something's Saloon." It's a hallway with a floor made of pieces of plywood on (Ray says shocks) Shocks that made you wabble as you walk. Kimber thought it was a hoot.

This is Alice's Rabbit hole at the Enchanted Forest. Kimber tried to get Case to go in, but it got smaller and smaller as you went through, plus it was dark. And it didn't help that Ray was making scary noises at the other end. Kimber even crawled half way through to see if he would follow Lillian. But he squeezed past her and ran down the pathway

Lillian loved giving Ray and Kimber the whole tour.... including the creepy witch head slide thing... LOL.  That's what Kimber named it.

Case, of course, loved the train.  I think he could stay all day on that silly little train.

Even Kimber would go on that ride.  Guess it's slow enough.

Case also loved the water bumper boats...

So did Lillian.  Sher sure takes some silly pictures.

At the end of the day Case was all tuckered out.  He fell asleep on Ray's lap while Lillian got in one last ride.

Book of Mormon Study... Title page and testimony of the witnesses

According to the Prophet Joseph Smith, “the title-page of the Book of Mormon is a literal translation, taken from the very last leaf, on the left hand side of the collection or book of plates, which contained the record which has been translated, the language of the whole running the same as all Hebrew writing in general; and that said title page is not by any means a modern composition, either of mine or of any other man who has lived or does live in this generation” (History of the Church, 1:71).

That means it’s scripture too! That is why today I start my Book of Mormon study with the title page.

I am part of the House of Israel. My children and their children are a part of the House of Israel. This Book is written for me and for them.

I love that the Title page declares that this book is a “gift”… now this book I am marking will become a “gift” for my grandson. How cool is that? I feel like Nephi, writing my testimony of Jesus Christ and of the gospel plan as I study God’s word so …

An Open Letter to Those Who Hate The School Dress Code

I have noticed a ton of resistance to dress codes in schools.  I have something to say... get over it.  
A dress code is not about body shaming.  It is not about control.  It's not about taking away individuality. The dress code is not about making social divisions.  It is not about taking away individual rights.
A dress code is about keeping a professional environment where real work happens.  Contrary to popular belief, woman don't get to wear whatever they want when ever they want in "the real world." Every profession has some kind of dress code.  Nurses, doctors, real estate brokers, vets, and even McDonald's workers have a dress code.  Even farmers and day labors wear clothing appropriate to the work they do.  School is a professional environment where the student's "job" is to be the student - to learn - and the teachers' job is to open the possibilities in young minds and to create an environment where people - all people - can learn.  Th…

Once-a-Slightly Over Month Cooking

Today may be the last day of the year, but it was the first day of the month around the Boyack house.  Today was Once-a-Month-Cooking day.  The funny thing is that it usually ends up lasting longer than a month.  Our last big cooking day lasted from September to now.  The thing is, I don't always pull from the freezer.  Weekend we cook from scratch.  However, with my voice lessons in late afternoons and sometimes play practice or performance I am too tired to think about dinner.  Making dinner ahead saved me so much money from September to Christmas that I was able to pay for half of Christmas from the savings from the food budget.  Plus, we had much healthier meals!

After collecting which recipes we wanted to make, and making a shopping list, John headed to the store around noon.  We started the cooking and assembly around 1:00 and ended all the cooking by 7:00.  In that time we made 35 dinners.  We have the fix-in's in the cupboard to make 15 more quick and easy meals.  We …
