Family Fun Jar

Jax posing with the "Family Fun Jar"

A few weeks ago, Chad and I decided to revamp Family Home Evening. We have never been very consistent, and we decided it was time to change. To aid us in our transition, we put together a "Family Fun Jar" which contains 30 or so activities. Each Monday we pull from the jar and have a randomly selected activity for the next week. The person who chooses the activity is in charge of planning it and the other person is in charge of a short lesson. So far, so good! It makes actually having Family Home easier to have when it is already planned for us.

I can't believe how big he's getting! That's such a great idea for the jar - I think maybe we'll try that, too!

You guys are just too good!

I read about (and witness) the commitment to spirituality you have, and I am in awe!

Also...what a fine looking little fella you have there! His Pops loves and misses him a lot!

Also, I love his parents, you know!

Oh, how I miss all of you. Jaxon is still the cutest baby in town.

That is a good idea, I'm sure I'll be borrowing it. He just keeps getting bigger and cuter huh?
