Summer is finely here. We pass the city pool on our walks and it looks refreshing. Maybe next summer.
We have had a week of being indoors more, which means we have been able to stay some what cool. We have been preparing for our class, Elder Wheeler has been working on the branch boundaries for our district, and Sister Wheeler is working on the inventory for the library at the church, and typing up the corrections on the membership records, that we have been able to get the information for, so that others don't have to try to read Elder Wheeler's writing.

This week was our first institute (oops, adult religion class). We prepared a lot of material to introduce the Pearl of Great Price as a power-point then burned it onto a DVD so we could use the TV at the church rather than take the laptop and projector. Preparation came between our regular activities of organizing the church library (Monday), district meeting in Belleville (Tuesday), and taking a morning walk through Ferris Park (Wednesday). We had a good turnout (14 - which is more than we got to our class in Toronto) and it was a lot of fun.

We had a branch activity on Saturday. They called it a family-home-evening, but it was a branch away-from-home day. We went to the Scott lavender farm for their annual festival. We were able to see four varieties of lavender, taste lavender lemonade and ice cream, and wander around the gardens.

We then drove to Brighton for lunch at Sister Holt's (H) sister's restaurant. Brighton was having a street festival as well. Everyone seemed to like the chocolate store with authentic-tasting gelato.

Sunday was a tiring day. It might be as much from the heat as from the activities of the past two days although we have been about 10 degrees cooler than Washington, Arizona, Utah, or the eastern US. Even more travel is in store for next week.
