We had a wonderful General Conference weekend as a family, watching each session, taking notes, feeling the spirit, and having our testimonies strengthened. I have twenty four pages of notes with things I heard and inspiration I received as I listened to God's prophet and apostles teach and share truth. Now our family will study these messages alongside the scriptures for the next 6 months until the next conference!
The kids did just fine on their school work this week. Every day was the usual round of lessons, reading, and learning. We finished listening to Wonder and watched the movie as a family because our book club day keeps getting pushed back due to illness. It was a good book and we enjoyed the movie too. Mason's only complaint was that the movie left out a few parts from the book. On Friday after school was finished most of the kids spent 2 hours drawing together. We have a membership to Art for Kids Hub thanks to a grandma. While you can see most of their art tutorial videos on their YouTube channel, the membership keeps the videos in a safe website with no ads and no way to click into the seamy side of YouTube. It also includes printable coloring pages and drawing tutorials. I will link to the tutorials the kids did today on YouTube. Please don't let kids use YouTube without direct adult supervision!

They really liked the folding surprise ones. Basically, you fold the paper so that you can make a drawing with the paper folded and when you pull it open all the way the drawing has more hiding inside the fold.
As much as I would love to write more, I have a baby to snuggle and a toddler to wrestle into using a tissue for his runny nose. Got to go!
