Idaho Here We Come!!

We leave for Idaho tomorrow for our yearly trip to the farm. It will be very fun to see family and friends that we haven't seen in a long time. There is going to be a Bischoff Family Reunion in Blackfoot with all the extended family. I'm sure I'll be meeting family I never knew I had. I probably won't post for a week or so because Grandma's has slow internet. I'll post pics when I get back. Have a SUPER Summer Week!! We will be!!

Just another day in Paradise!!

Well, I will not bore you with our troubles. I need to concentrate on positive right now more than ever!! So we are healthy, we are relatively happy, it is sunny outside today (always a plus), we have the gospel, we have our family, we have great friends (the Brokaws let us use their car top carrier for our trip to Idaho), we have electricity, running toilets, and running water, we have 2 great dogs, our garden is growing really good right now (even our green beans, they haven't done well in the past), we will be in Idaho visiting family very soon, and we have each other. I guess we do have a lot to be grateful for. I need to do this more often. It makes me feel much better. :) We hope everyone else is having a Great Day!!

Scout Camp?

Well, I took Daniel up to the church so he can go to Boy Scout Camp this week. He was a little nervous. It's his first time this long away from home. Camping has not been our family strong suit. I remember camping as a kid. We had a lot of fun. I love nature and being outdoors. I prefer places with bathrooms though. I'm not big on no toilets. :) Lynn never camped as a kid. His family are dairy farmers and they always had to milk the cows. So Lynn is not big on camping. Last year we did a trial "camping" at Jared and Amy Wade's house. We pitched tents in their back yard and cooked meals on our camp stove. It was fun. Maybe this year we may have to try the real thing. Jacob does need to go camping for his Outdoorsman pin. But I think we'll wait until after girls camp. :)
