Hampton Court Palace (Rear)
BJ asked for some pictures of the British Isles for a school project.  Since I'm so indecisive about what to include and what not to include decided to post them on a Picassa web album so he could down load what he wants.  I've labeled most of them, though they are not in chronological order - long explanation I will spare you.
 If you are interested is seeing what Mother and I saw Five years ago (has it really been that long!) here is the link

 A glimpse of what is in the album. Really wish I had the time and money to make a proper scrapbook of our adventure.  It was wonderful!  Thanks Mother!

Still on the stand

No picture.
No poem.

"Just the facts, Ma'am."

 Bishop Rod Davis after serving 6+ years was released as the Leon Valley Ward bishop today. Marvin Weatherholtz (1st counselor) and Richard (2nd Counselor) were also released.  Brad Winter was sustained as bishop with Richard as 1st Counselor and Scott Fulmer as 2nd Counselor.  We also sustained a new Executive Secretary (previous one having completed a portion of his medical training is moving).

Because of the 18 moves from our ward that are occurring in May and June (they have completed another rung on their life's ladder) the Elder's Quorum Presidency and High Priests Group were also reorganized today.

There are many more holes to fill.

Those that are moving have greatly blessed our ward and we will miss them.  Their future wards will be blessed.
