Mother & ducklings in a local pond

We always look forward to talking with our children and grandchildren on Sunday evenings; this evening was no exception.  Spencer, our son, told us about serving in the parking lot at the Tucson Temple Open House and the melting asphalt related to heat.
We have had lovely weather, not hot and humid as we have been warned our summer would be.  I am sure we will not miss out.  This morning I went for a walk around our apartment; I needed a jacket. 

Our lesson in Relief Society was on becoming a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ by Elder Robert D. Hales.  I have studied Doctrine and Covenants 4 and am interested in the attributes we should develop to become more Christlike.  Faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, diligence and as Elder Hales shared "disciples live so that the characteristics of Christ are woven into the fiber of their beings".  I have a lot of work to do.

George & Becky Dewitt
Yesterday was a great day when we went to the Temple along with three sisters (two are recent converts) and did baptisms.  Our Branch President performed the baptisms.  It was the Sisters first time visiting the Temple and they expressed their joy in having this experience.  Also, quite out of the ordinary, George happened to meet up with his second cousin, Becky Dewitt and her husband from Mesa,AZ at the Temple.

Beautiful summer day at the Temple

A couple of times this week, we have had lunch and treats with Missionaries.  It is always great to hear testimonies and experiences.

Monday evening we were invited to a Family Home Evening at the Mission Home for the senior missionaries and the Mission Presidency.  We enjoyed dinner and a lesson and good company.
