“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

A "Trace" of Snow for Rexburg...

Last week we had our first snowfall of any substance.  They were expecting a trace of snow, but we got a whopping 7 inches. It was beautiful and I went to school with the snow falling peacefully all around.  It was amazing.  I could totally get used to this!  The kids went off to school too.  They do not cancel school for snow, but they were excited to get to play in the snow with their friends at recess.  After school they bundled up in their snow pants, jackets and gloves and went out sledding at the park here in the neighborhood.  It has some great hills!  The next day after school they were out again with the neighbors, building snowmen, throwing snowballs, just having a great time.  The snow has melted and it has been up to the 60's again, but the sky is blue and it is truly a beautiful time of year. We are all looking forward to more snow soon!

I was especially impressed by the young men in our ward.  The boys are assigned to shovel for the single sisters in the ward and sure enough, bright and early the boys were out shoveling snow in our neighborhood and the next. 

Look at the size of that icicle!!
