Here they are flying out the front door when they saw them on the sidewalk.
The girls have made the best of a very sad collection of ill-sized, non-functioning bicycles for the last couple of years. They are looking forward to a long bike ride together tomorrow.
For a couple of years Clark has wanted to put together a Dungeons & Dragons club-- a group of friends to get together once a month and go on "adventures". Putting aside the fact that I have never really understood why this is such fun for Abe and his brothers or Clark and his cousins, I was FULLY in support of him setting this up. I'll explain why in a moment, but this is a picture of their first meeting this past Saturday evening.
But here is why I was so happy for Clark to set up this club. There was an article in the Deseret News just this morning addressing the nurturing of young men. This article pointed to Boy Scouting as a means of meeting the needs and desires that young men have to be challenged, accomplish things, make friends, and be morally strong.
The article suggested (and I COMPLETELY agree) that young men too often spend hours upon hours playing addictive and/or violent video games that appear to provide for all those needs, but are actually counterfeits, leaving the young men with nothing.
