24th Celebration

Even though the 24th of July is the celebration of pioneers settling Utah, it is a day that all Mormons celebrate.

Here are some fun things we did in Oregon.







The missionaries eating blackberries.


Lady Avalon eating blackberries.



Not only did we pick tons of fresh berries, but we ate tons of blackberry desserts.

Our Biggest Sword Making Project Ever

 This was just day one.

Sydney's girls ended up sewing all the covers.

This was such an amazing project with tons of help.

Thank you Sydney for making this possible and hosting us.


All these swords were used for this:












A Hundred Young Women Swordfighting

This was one of my dreams come true.

Last Saturday I was asked to teach some sword fighting classes.
There were four classes of about 25 girls.

The theme was "Armed, Able and Adorable."

After the battle games, I taught quick lesson about fortifying yourself against the evils of this world and never giving up.

Kal'el was my armed, able and, adorable assistant.
