So Adam and I have been wanting to start having a “real” FHE on Mondays. For those that may not know, FHE stands for Family Home Evening, and it is normally on Monday nights and it is a time where a family will get together and have a lesson and activity and a good time. It is another opportunity to study and teach one another about the gospel in a family setting. It is really awesome. It has been harder for us to get in the habit because it is just us, but since we know we want to do it once we have our own family….best start now!
Anyways! So we decided that since the weather is going to only get colder, our best bet is to hike “R” mountain while we still can. I decided the lesson would then be on how exercising can not only help you physically, but also spiritually. We hiked up to the top and had our lesson and I made yummy molasses cookies to indulge in as well. It was a success!
Then on the way down the path I heard a rattling sound and couldnt figure out what it was…but Adam said it was a rattlesnake! Right next to me! So I jumped back as softly as I could, but it was blocking the path. So Adam took out his .45 (we had it in the backpack…just in case for such a time as these!) And he took one shot and blew its head off. My hero! It was seriously being hostile and scary! So I am glad Adam was able to take care of it. What an adventure! Hmm maybe next week I will have a lesson on being prepared……hahah.
These are our Bits O’ Bertoch.
