Over the summer I have been re watching some of my favorite classics movies as I run.  My kids have seen all of them before and enjoy them, but it was really fun to watch with Cora this time.  She is now old enough to really get them.  We have seen 'Pillow Talk', 'Sense and Sensibility', and 'Anne of Green Gables'.  Cora loves Rachel Lynde, the noisy neighbor. Cora says she is hilarious.  It has been a delight.

Cora was made Beehive President today.  She is really excited about her new calling and looking forward to what is ahead with that.  She will be going to BYC, and contacting other Beehives (both active and non active).  I think this is going to be a great learning experience for her.

Our passports are expiring soon.  I have been working to get them renewed.  My last picture was honestly the worst picture that I have ever had in my life.  Even my good husband has been making fun of me for the last 5 years.  I have a  natural frown.  So just sitting there I look very angry.  You are not allowed to smile in the picture, can't show any teeth, you have to have your ears showing, and can't wear a hoodie.  This year I made great effort to do my hair and make-up very nice.  Wear a good shirt and smile just enough that I wasn't frowning anymore but not to much that they could tell I was smiling.  A couple days later I went to pick up my pictures.  I had slapped  on some mascara, done my hair at red lights down Mayor Magrath, and had on an old T-shirt under my hoodie.  When I got there they informed me that my picture had not worked and I needed to do it again.  So off came the hoodie.  And I sat down.  Nice!!  Dave did say it was still a huge improvement over last time.  I guess that I am just not destine to have a good passport photo.  Here is to traveling. :)


  1. Cora is going to do such a good job! She is awesome!

  2. Regarding the photo. I think I laughed for three min. stright. Sorry! I just know how that feels. Granted I have no passport, but I do have a drivers licence.
