So, where did this desire to go to the mall come from in my son? Ry & his friends have asked/begged to go to the mall for the last few weeks so I finally gathered my strength & some Tylenol and we went. The kids were great and we were only there an hour. And yet the whole time I just kept thinking how I am not ready for the teen years up ahead. Sigh...

In other news, we are at Cub Scout Day Camp this week. The joke of the week is that the program director has put me in charge of the Scout Spirit class. I really do not sing but I think the only requirement of the job is to be able to make a fool out of yourself in front of groups of 8, 9, & 10 yr. old boys, which to Ry's chagrin, I am very good at! Overall, we are having a good time.

I get teary eyed when I think of the great love these two brothers have for each other. Every morning for the last few years they have both risen at 5:45 and read the scriptures together over the phone at 6:00 a.m. Brother Babcock has pushed Bro. Thompson's wheelchair in 5k races. Even with the added challenge of daily dialysis they took a cruise to South America together. Bro. Babcock became trained in dialysis and so that Bro. Thompson could attend church each Sunday. After sacrament they would go to the bathroom to complete the drain cycle and then return to Gospel Doctrine class and then attend priesthood. They have been such an example to me of Christ like love and devotion and living the gospel to it's very fullest.
This morning Bro. Thompson passed away. I am so grateful that I knew him. My heart aches a bit as I remember my friend & my brother.
Free-spirited and wise. You have a strong passionate spirit that touches and changes all who know you. The wisdom and common sense that you have is really what guides you through life. Even so, you also have a very playful side that loves adventure and excitement.
