Tonight was another first. Since we are now empty nesters I've been thinking about starting a family home evening group. I wanted to invite a whole bunch of people but decided to just stick to my very closest neighbors and to only have four other couples. I made the laziest meal I could think of...chili, corn bread, relish plate and root beer floats. I kept finding great stuff for the lesson and ended up with three lessons. HA! I just gave two though. One was that fabulous talk, "Come What May and Love It," by Wirthlin and then just a story on gratitude on page 87 of the Ensign. They all added tremendous stories that applied and we just had the best time visiting. They all seemed to enjoy it a lot and we are going to meet once a month. I've been involved with my family for so long that we haven't had much social time so this was a new and fun event for us.

Well, since the kids have gone I am pretty hard up for things to blog about. Today was a first however. Seth has strawed down the cattle for 40 years and I have never once gone to see what that was. Well, since our six sons are gone, guess who has to help now? I never pictured myself doing anything on the farm. This is truly about the first time I've ever driven a tractor. I'm having a lot of firsts these days.
