Cleaning and FHE

I know there are some ladies in the ward that just have no motivation to clean their house because it's beyond help or they're too busy.  I found this website on Pinterest and it has a printable cleaning calendar.  It tells you what to do daily, weekly, and a once a week chore.  The lady spends 20-30 minutes a day on a 1,500 sq ft apartment.  I dare you to try this for a week!  Here is the website:

When there is a clean house, it invites the spirit. 

We had a great lesson this Sunday (Aug.26) on teaching our children.  It made me think of some good ideas for FHE.  Here is a FHE idea for children to put together the Family Proclamation.  Then you can talk about the family.

Cheryl A Esplin: "Teaching our children to understand is more than just imparting information.  It's helping our children get the doctrine into their hearts in a way that it becomes part of their very being and is reflected in their attitudes and behavior throughout their lives."

Mother/Daughter Night



Everyone that came had a great time making a picture frame and eating ice cream sundaes.  Sister Trish Oliver gave a great lesson on mothers.  If you were not able to make it we missed you and hope you come to the next activity.  Here are some pictures.

More summer fun

Going to the library is a great summer thing to do.  The books are free and you can get a ton at one time!  Here is a list of some books that build character for kids...

No more Fun Fridays

Since Sarah Foote will be leaving the ward :-( there will be no more Fun Fridays.
If anyone wants to take over, leave a comment or let the presidency know and I'm sure they would be fine with that. :-)

Summer Fun

Don't know what to do this summer? I found some things on Pinterest. If you have not looked at pinterest, you are missing out because there are TONS of great things there. I follow LDS Mormons and there are over 1,000 pins.

Here is something you can make with your kids during the summer.

PAPER PLATE FRISBEES




Here is a book you might like...
Heaven Help Us!  A Humorous Look at WomanhoodIf anyone has read it, please post a comment so that others can know if it's a good book.

If you feel like cleaning your microwave because who knows when you last cleaned it, here is a website that will help you clean your microwave in 2 MINUTES! Just water and vinegar.

Fun Fridays Flyer Correction

ALL Sister are invited to bring their children (even YM/YW are welcome if they want to come)
I hope that my mistake in the flyer didn't prevent any of you from coming. I made the flier late at night and never intended to exclude anyone. Here is the corrected flyer... Today we had a great turnout for "Back to the Beach". Hopefully next week will be even better!
