For Heaven Sakes

This morning at our activity days activity I rolled my ankle so badly. I had to sit for a few minutes and I am still limping this evening. I went and got an x-ray and it isn't broken so that's good. sigh. If there is a hole I will find it. It is astounding. The activity was so fun though and turned out well. It was a father/daughter activity. We got the idea from Sugardoodle.

So Jillian, my friend, I am just going to have to take a break from you. The thought of jumping (impossible) makes me cringe. Workouts postponed....

Here are some pictures from the fun and limpy day.

So we handed out boxes to our girls about a week and a half before the activity so that they could make cars out of them with their dads for race day. The cars were AWESOME! I was certainly impressed with the efforts!!

Then we took pictures of them together. And the leaders too. :)

Race time! We split the girls and ran the race twice because some dads had more than one daughter to race with.

There were 4 pit stops that the racers had to stop at with different tasks to complete. They had to go around the course three times and each time there was a new thing for them to do at each station.

Victory! Right before lunch Sister Sprague gave a great thought about how the race was a lot like life after you are baptised. We have guidelines and commandments to follow that will bless us and keep us safe. We are to follow the course/example the Savior set for all of us, try our best and endure to the end.

2 Nephi 31:20
20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.
