the_thing_we_treasure_the_most_by_deakablackdragon-d1umvyd.jpg                I’m pretty excited for our Catechism class tomorrow, not only because I love teaching and have a ton of fun with the kids, but because I really like the lesson we have for it.

These summers, for me, were just as good as the ones I spent with tons of people or doing new things. One summer it felt like I spent most waking hours playing one game.
