Speaking of Cub Scouts....

Next year's Day Camp theme is Western. I am the Program Director and got to thinking. In the old western towns people really went out of their way to help others. If they didn't - neither would survive for long. At day camp next year - one of our stations will be quilt tying. I have 2 tops mostly done - need to add borders still. Just thought I would post what I've done so far. I only need to do 4 more tops now!


The boys will present these quilts they tied to a local sherriff who will then use them specifically when they have accidents involving a child. The child is the recipient of the quilt. I thought this would be a great idea to get these younger boys to think about others besides themselves.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
