More things of note

Well, things of note for me...not really for anyone else. First, yesterday was the first time Kember took a real shower (meaning not for swimming). This may not seem like a big deal, but my kids aren't so great in water. But she loved it! She was so excited about it that she wanted to tell Caden all about it and asked if he could take one. I think we will wait on that. Caden is even worse than Kember with getting water in his face. Let me tell you how much fun bathtime is at our house (can you hear the sarcasm?).

Here is a song that Caden made up today. I thought it was sweet.

"Be nice and be good.
Don't drink coffee.
Be nice everyday.
Don't hit, don't drink coffee.
Eat good food."

Clever eh? Hopefully he remembers all of his good advice and follows it :)

When we got out of church today Kember excitedly told me that they learned about Joseph Smith (and the story of him getting surgery on his leg). Caden told me that they learned that when they were having troubles that they needed to pray. I was feeling very good about this and so I asked Cole what he learned about. He got a big smile on his face and said, "Basketball!" Huh...guess that nursery lesson didn't sink in. I was actually just really proud of Kember for remembering and telling me. Normally when I ask her what she learns about whether in school or church her answer is, "I don't remember". Which is frustrating because I ask her right after....but she was very talkative today and I loved it. Caden volunteered to give the Family Home Evening lesson tomorrow, so we will see how that goes. Good times in the Johnson household.

HaHaha, Joey usually says the same thing when I ask him what he learned. But he enjoyed his Joseph Smith lesson today too. Probably because they made finger puppets and watched a video. All good.
Yay for Kember showering! It's so nice when there's one less person to have to clean. :)

We just had a vet get together the other day and were talking about how much we missed you guys. I'm glad you're doing well!

Tarah, thanks for all the fun excepts today! Caden's song sounds like a really good one and he is really learning those important concepts (charity and the word of wisdom) Loved all of it!
