Hangin' with the missionaries!

Our family loves to host the missionaries -- they are such great young men! Our kids enjoy being around them, which makes us happy... what better examples of the kind of selfless service that our kids will be doing someday too as missionaries.  We had Family Home Evening tonight, and Elder Broccious did a great job at the piano!

The elders taught a lesson about the 'walls' that we have to overcome, and what tools we can use to do that. They likened the Bible story of Joshua and the Jericho wall which came down through their faithfulness, to the Berlin wall in Germany, and how it came down in a similarly miraculous fashion. Our kids listed some of their 'walls' - Stephen suggested learning a new language; Kenny talked about having nightmares and how praying to God can help him. Then it was talent time -- here's Elder Wayment showing off his lifeguard (very loud!) whistle ~ the kids loved it!

Then, since it was P-Day (or Preparation Day for the missionaries) we played a bit in the park. It was all quite memorable!

And in other Chalk news, today was a big day -- we bought a JUICER!  (Plus $160 of fruits and veggies to try out...)

This all because Daron and I watched a very inspiring documentary - "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" (http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/) about a guy who not only cured himself of a terrible disease through juicing, but also affected countless others with his healthy habits.  The kids were beyond excited to get the juicer out of the box and start juicing...

Our beauti-"FULL" new cornicopia fruit/veggie-bowl!
