The Fall

Yesterday in Sunday school the lesson was on the fall of Adam. The teacher asked what was important to us about this event and I got shy and didn't participate and now I feel the need to express my thoughts... so naturally I turn to our blog!
That one moment that Adam partook of the fruit was a symbol of our accepting Heavenly Father's plan to come here and be tested. It is so important to me because I know that this life was not forced on me. I choose to come. This "test" is not just some prerequisite; He didn't say you have to go suffer and prove yourselves before you can come back and live with me. He gave us an option, He asked if we wanted to become like Him and then presented His plan. This plan was put into action by Adam, for all of us!
I could go on and on, this is one of my favorite topics. But I'll end there for now... I would love to know what you think.

He did it!

Lyndon has been working on his name. I can take no credit for this at all. The most I have done is write his name for him so he could trace it. (Not that I didn't want to help, but he takes no help from me! -- I am sure I don't know where he gets that from, I was always a very good student, right Mom!)
Anyway, I am very impressed, and don't you love the little stick man. Too cute. It's amazing to me that Lyndon won't be starting kindergarten this year, (he just turned 4 a month ago) but we are planning on getting him in a preschool instead (never thought I would do the pre-k thing but I think he needs it.)
