This is the Westside Free Pile...People are very earthy here...you can drop your stuff off or pick up some stuff you need...it's looking like a whole lot of junk to me. Kraig talked more about the "Free Pile" than anything else on the trip.
Many thanks to their leaders, Brother Smith and Brother Winter...Kraig had a great time. Many of the boys will be great leaders because they have had such fine examples. This is something these boys will never forget.

No ransom note was found, and no demands were made. She was still smiling, so I assume that she wasn't treated too poorly.
I wondered why Ben felt that he should act so extremely toward poor Madeline, so I asked him why he decided to bind the arms and legs Abby's Madeline doll with tape...He said "I hate that dolly, she's always staring at me."

The Home of Heidi Wiest

Unique in our Talents
United in our Purpose
In this red sack, three items you’ll place,
They should represent YOU, so don’t be in haste.
Choose three of your talents or special abilities,
Your hobbies, experiences or capabilities.
If you can’t find an item, a description you’ll write,
Photos or certificates are perfectly all right.
Seal your three items in your bag with care
No names on the bags, it’s a secret to share.
At enrichment meeting, we’ll open the sacks
We’ll try to guess WHO...as we look at the facts.
Invite your friends, our Young Women and all,
It will be a great night, so give them a call.
Dinner is at 6:30, June 24 is the date,
Don’t forget your red sack (& please don’t be late).
*Your favorite salad to share
*Your red bag with three items that
describe you (remember, no names)
I like to crochet...maybe I'll include one of these crowns in my bag
I just ran my first 5K, I could put my BIB number in my red bag
Any other ideas? I'm open to suggestions...I only need three things, but I want them to be GOOD!

Reed rode Nugget and Ben was on American Flyer
Ben REALLY wanted to ride Jazz the Zebra, but the little girl in front of him snagged it first...Watch out for those darned girls Ben! :)

The recipe we used. It is from a cook book called Mormon Cooking...
2 c milk
1 c sugar
1 Tbl flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
3 c cream
2 tsp vanilla
2 c crushed strawberries
Scald milk. Combine sugar, flour, and salt and whisk into the scalded milk. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir 3 Tbl of hot mixture into egg yolks. Immediately stir back into milk mixture. Return to heat and cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly until mixture coats a metal spoon.
Stir in cream, vanilla, and berries, chill well....Freeze in ice cream freezer.
I have to admit this was a pretty DARNED GOOD first attempt...could be tough to beat.

Now Ben has an itchy rash on his leg. He's pretty miserable and is, of course, making my life hard too....Sigh...I wish it were more satisfying to say "I told you so."

Steve and Ben watched the race up until the time I crossed the finish line, so Ben thinks I came in dead last...he keeps telling me "Mom, you losed!" I wasn't last!
