WANTED by the Republic Police Department

Seiler has been taken down to the Republic Police Department to take a tour with his friends and family! This is all he wanted for his birthday!

We had Officer Davis show us all his gear as a S.W.A.T. team member! then he taught the kids about gun safety and how they should never touch them!

Selier and uncle Josh were handcuffed together!Then we went through the tour taking our finger prints and checking out the nasty jail cell!

At the end of the tour and most of the kids favorite, Officer Davis let the kids jump into his car and turn on the sirens!! It was "Really Cool" said Seiler!

To end the day like a real officer we went to Krispy Kremes to stuff our faces with donuts!!!

Reconstructing Nauvoo

I was in charge of the Family home evening lesson this week! I decided to talk about Joseph Smith and I found this lesson about old Nauvoo!I had everyone put this paper city together as I told the story about the Book of Mormon and those who were a big influence on it becoming published. I then told them about the movement to Nauvoo and about some of the people who were significant in the construction of old Nauvoo! I then helped finish the project! Seiler, Ryann and Jessica had a lot of fun!
