Work

So this summer is vacation this time for us is a whole month long. My dad is only going to be there for half of the time! His evil work that will not let him stay with us. And it's a lot of money to change our flights to come home earlier! And we will miss him!

 It's time to party!

Church

I am a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. So in primary I had a talk on one of my memorize Monday from the scriptures. Here is my talk.(I am pretty proud of it because my primary leader made a copy of it!)

At the beginning of the year our family started memorizing a scripture every Monday night. The first scripture that we learned is our favorite and it is actually the theme for this month. It says “And by the power of the Holy Ghost you may know the truth of all things.”

 This is an important scripture because it helps us to know that whenever we have doubts or worries, or want to learn if certain principles of the gospel are true, the Holy Ghost can help us to know the truth. In this verse, Moroni tells us specifically that if we want to know if the scriptures are true that we should ask Heavenly Father and he will help us to know through the Holy Ghost that they are true.

Last week during Family Home Evening my dad asked me “Gracie, have you prayed to know that Joseph Smith is a real prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true?” I told him that I had prayed about it before and that I had gotten a happy feeling. I know that this happy feeling was the Holy Ghost testifying to me about the truth of these things.

Another one of our favorite Memorize Monday scriptures says “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Since the Holy Ghost is a spirit and we cannot see him, we have to faith that he will help us. Sometimes that is the hardest part. This week I read about the prophet Enos in the scriptures. He decided that he wanted to better understand the gospel and become a better person. As we learn in the scriptures he prayed for a long time! And as he prayed, the spirit spoke to him that the things that his father taught him were true.


I want to bear you my testimony that I know that if we try out our faith and ask Heavenly Father our hard questions that he will answer them, and that by the power of the Holy Ghost, we may know the truth of ALL things.” In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Oakridge farms is a place were you go pick fruits and vegetables on your own.Well we went to pick strawberries.We were kind of afraid that we were going to have as many strawberries as our friends the Kings.They had 25 pounds of strawberries!We picked 17 pounds of strawberries in 23 minutes!We all picked very well even Molly did she would pick them of bushes and eat them, and even steal them from everyone else's berries baskets!

Fathers,Fathers,Fathers

Today was crazy!I went to volleyball,our friends house,and activity days.in Activity Days we had our dads come because of Father's Day!It was dad do your hair and fingernails!That did not go well.Then we got to paint our dads nails.It was so funny and totally made my day!My dad put my sisters hair in two nice messy buns.And he put my hairnado (thats what he calls it).It actually looked like the messiest unicorn horn there ever was with a messy braid in the back.My dad had never done hair before,so he thought that it was such a great masterpiece I should wear it to prom!I disagree.My dad actually did good on the nails.Alli took off her nail polish right away and so did my dad but I didn't.

Wapaca or Hartman

Yesterday my dad took a day of work off,so my family decided we would go to the beach.We planned to go canoeing and swimming at Wapaca,but when we parked somewhere which was not Wapaca I asked if it was a diff rent route to Wapaca.It wasn't Wapaca it was Hartman State Park,and my parewnts didn't even tell us we were going there.It was fun but not as fun as Wapaca would have been.

Studio C

Studio C is our family's favorite show.We could watch it all day and never stop,except when there is a Bisque show.Personally I think those are the worst parts Studio C could ever make.My dad thinks Studio C should get rid of Whitney,James,Adam,and Natalie.Which leaves it down to Jason,Malory,Matt,Stacey,and half of Jeremy's skits.My favorite people are Matt and Malory.My dad says that Stacey should take Whitney's place as the one of the producers of Studio C.I agree with him.
 my dad so interested in Studio C

Girls Day

This week was the Father,Son campout.So the girls had the house to ourselves.So we totally used our time wisely and went to Qudoba and got dinner and my favorite thing there was the soda.(Of course I had Sprite with Lemonade plus there were free refills!)We also earned a free ice cream at Culvers.We got the ice cream free because our library is doing a program that if you read every day and do one activity on their pan flit we would get whatever sheet we put our reading on.Back to the food I got mini Resses Pieces with Butterfinger and Vanilla ice cream which was really really good.On the other hand my sister had Resses Peanut Butter Cups with Heath and Chocolate ice cream Alli was in Heaven but personally I thought that was a lot of chocolate and would have given me a heart attack.But Alli thought it was great and she wanted to eat it all day if she could.She even said herself she wanted to buy it next time.She is a very insane person.Some reasons Alli is insane is because she didn't eat her food from Qudoba,gave me her Ginger Ale that is the love her life except to her Watermelon is always comes first to Alli,and she also bought that chocolate ice cream.Well when the boys got home they thought they had the most fun but they didn't we did and they never found out what we did, only our dad did.We also watched Phantom of the Opera which I have the piano book for.Our girls night out was the BEST!Here are some pics:
