We also went to Brigham Young's grave.
There were some beautiful flowers.

This picture has nothing to do with EFY but thought I would put it in. This is Ty's group of friends he hangs out with. Such great young men! So grateful he has these boys in his life.

Here is a post I did a few years ago that explains more about it.
One of the first things we are going to do is make up a Summer Journal. I found this cute idea and decided we will cut out each of these and paste them on the page and it will give them something they can write about.
The girls wanted to do Handipoints again this summer so I've set up their daily jobs on it. They will earn points to play with on Handipoints. It really is a great free chore system with incentives when jobs are done. At least for my girls they have loved it. Having a virtual cat to buy clothes, play games and have a house to decorate has been fun for them.
Here is our magnet board all ready for the summer. Now school just needs to get out.

Ty recieved the Diamond Shield at school this year. As you can see only 12 people in the entire school got it. It was a lot of hard work and lots of service. So proud of what a hard worker he is and how Ty excels in all he does. We had no idea he was even working for this award until we got a letter in the mail saying he would be recieving it. He also received the Math department award this year. Only 2 kids received this award. He also got 100% on his end of level Math testing and only missed one on the other tests. He is a hard worker and we are so proud of him.
Holding all his certificates he got at the awards night along with his medal from math.

I hope the kids learned how fun service can be and the good feeling you have when you do it. This spring there hasn't been as many butterflies around. In fact it had been a few weeks since I had seen a butterfly but this day during most of the day as we volunteered a butterfly would fly by. I just had to think that Wyatt was letting us know how proud he was of us and what we were doing as a family and that we were doing it together and creating some lasting memories. That was a tender mercy for me that day.
The theme of the station we worked at was "Hollywood". They had all sorts of stars and even a red carpet that the runners ran on. I had no idea they did that kind of stuff. It made it that much more fun for us especially since we got to help decorate it.
Handing out the gatroade...it was so good for my kids to have to get out of their comfort zone and speak to and cheer the runners on.:)
|After we got done volunteering we walked to the finish line and watched as some of the Ironmen finished. Quite amazing! So fun to be a part of. Look forward to helping out next year.|
