Family Home Evening, August 20, 2007

Good Monday Evening to Everyone,

Summer is over and kids are heading back to school this week. The first day of school is always so exciting and unnerving.
We pray that you will have a successful and effective new year of learning!

Have a good week. Check out the

Be wise, and keep learning!

We love you very much!

Mom and Dad
