Beefche beat me to the punch.  Papa has the Hepworth genes in full force.  I know you love that little one. He's adorable! What does Sarah Grace think about him?

Since I work an evening shift and I am the only person in my department after 7 pm, I have the advantage of listening to audio books.  Just last week I listened to Born to Change the World by Brad Wilcox.  He delves into the tribes of Israel and the gathering of these tribes.  I learned details about the tribes (and also some of the traditions) that I had not known previously.  If you read or listen to it, I'd like to get your reaction.

According to his Facebook post from yesterday, Boardmadd was at the LA Convention Center yesterday with DD Amber.

This thread reminds me of the final dedication session of the SC Columbia Temple back in October 1999.  I had the rare blessing to be inside the temple (in one of the sealing rooms) during this session.  President Hinckley spoke about the eternal chain of families and how they are linked by temple ordinances.  He paused a microsecond and then said he hoped he wouldn't be the weak link in his family's chain.  To hear a Prophet of God speak so humbly about himself, worrying he might be a weak link in the chain of his eternal family just floored me.  No self-aggrandizement there.  No sense whatsoever of making himself out to be at any higher level than anyone else in that edifice (just had to use that word here).  It made me reflect on what my responsibilities are concerning family history work and how I might expect more of myself in that regard.  How would I sum it up?  Pure love coupled with motivation.

Roper, this is wonderful news.  My one and only grandchild, Samuel, is going into Kindergarten this year.  By the time your curriculum is published, will he be in your target demographic?  At this time, he is enrolled in a private (Catholic) school and Oma (me) is paying half the tuition.  I want to make sure he gets the best instruction and I want to protect my financial investment in his education.  South Carolina public schools don't fare very well in the state-by-state ranking.

Ab.so.lute.ly prodigious!  They nailed it. 

(I must admit that my seven decades on earth including the 3 decades I've spent in health-care related occupations, makes me worry about severe neck problems in the future for these remarkable musicians.)

[ETA:  It's now two hours later and I can't get this music out of my head.  Love it.!]

Hey Nauvoodles, it's 2:36 in the morning here in the Palmetto State.  I want a bowl of pasta, and I want it right now.  (But I won't cook it because it's 2:36 in the morning and I need to go to sleep.)  But this topic certainly is tempting!

Iggy, the part that confuses me is why you feel the need to make sure the newly-called teacher stays on track.  Isn't that the responsibility of the person with stewardship in Sunday School?  Or isn't it up to class members to steer the discussion back on track if the teacher wanders off on a tangent?  I'm honestly NOT trying to call you out on your comment; I just don't see why you are shouldering that responsibility.

I even refused to read the lesson until they did. Well those old tired bums called this morning and said they called a teacher and I wouldn't be teaching. Now I need to read & listen to the lesson so I can make sure this newest called teacher stays on track.

Why?  Did I miss something here?  Do you have a new calling?

Wishing you much success and fulfillment in your new assignment.  I'm sad for all the new students who won't have you as their teacher.

Umm, Iggy, why not tell Bro. Iggy what you just told us?

I would still want the reassurance that the children being questioned and photographed are participating with parental approval.

Oh, I just wanted to clear something up - - I could care less that the 5 year old wears just his underpants or goes barefoot. What I cared about was his rolling around in dog poop and pee.

Understood.  However, rolling around in animal excrement as a regular habit can't be healthy for anyone.  I'm glad your situation was eliminated.

Do I also go to Children Services since their 5 year old runs around barefoot & in just underpants and rolls all over the 'yard' with the three pit bull dogs [an adult male he has grown up around, a 6 week old female puppy and now his GreatGrandmother's barely adult female

I can't answer that question for you, but if I were planning to take that step, I would have photographic/video evidence, lest it become a "he said-she said" argument.
