Family Night

We were so excited to have Eric's parents for Family Home Evening tonight!

We had a great lesson on The Prohet, Elijah. Where Naman had to wash himself 7 times in the Jordan River, to be healed of his leprosy. It stuck in Pace's mind, because this morning while getting ready for preschool he said, "If the prophet tells us to take a bath, we really need to take a bath!" I love it!

After the lesson, we had ice cream cones out on the trampoline; and then hunted for Scorpions with a black light, my kitchen tongs, and a jar. We caught eight of them! Gross!

Pace & Cade were playing on the back patio barefooted this morning. This little sucker stung Pace in the foot.

We killed, and then kept the scorpion in case Pace had any ill reaction to the sting. We wanted to be able to show the doctor the size and type. I think the pictures make it look bigger (it was the size of my thumbnail).
Pace did great! No reaction at all, except for the initial trauma of it.
