Survival Kits...

And you thought I was referring to the backpack survival kits! Gotcha! :) These little survival kits are for our Primary teachers and music people. We are doing this as a teacher appreciation in conjunction with interviewing them to see how classes are going and any concerns they may have. We will also let them know what class to expect the next year. I had a lot of fun making these. They were pretty basic.

The list in case you are interested...
Toothpick: Pick the good qualities in everyone including yourself!
Rubberband: Be flexible. Things might not always to the way you want.
Band-Aid: To heal hurt feelings, either yours or someone else's.
Eraser: Everyone makes mistakes. That's okay, we learn by our mistakes.
Candy Kiss: Everyone needs a hug or a compliment every day.
Mint: You are worth a mint to your class.
Bubble Gum: Stick with it and you can accomplish anything.
Pencil: List your blessings every day.
A tissue: For drying tears. Yours and theirs.
Lifesavers: Sometimes we all need a little help.
Happy Faces: Smiling is contagious.
Candle: You show your class a better way!
A star: To reflect your inner beauty.
Ear Plugs: When you just can't take anymore.
Marbles: To replace the ones you've lost.
Starburst: To give you a "burst" of energy when you need it.

I want one! I've been exiled to the Priamry for a few years now. :)
I like it most Sundays. I just became the teacher for the class I left over the summer (CTR 6&7 and I also inherited the CTR 5 class since the teacher "quit".) I walked back into church and they said "here's your manual!"

I just love this picture! The's the place to be!

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!
