MLK Jr. Day

There are a number of museums that are free on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so I went with some friends to explore. We visited the Natural History Museum (billions and billions of years ago…), Great Lakes Science Center, and the Cleveland Botanical Garden.

July 4th

I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.

Some friends invited us to join them with celebrating the 4th of July – and they were great hosts! Here are some pictures. The first three photographs were taken by Matthew.

Nashville Family Conference and Noteworthy Reunion

Here are a couple pictures from a brief Noteworthy reunion before the conference, and some of the preparation for the Children’s Institute. More pictures of the conference can be seen at https://plus.google.com/photos/+FamilyconferencesOrg/albums/6153565116215270881. Matthew, Andrew, Christi, and I taught in the Children’s Institute, as did a couple of the other previous Noteworthy students. Mom and Dad enjoyed the main sessions. The rest of us are looking forward to when the messages become available on embassyinstitute.org.IMG_0408 IMG_0418 IMG_0431 IMG_0432 IMG_0433 IMG_0435 IMG_0436 IMG_0438
