We have liked this program because it has allowed us to slowly build our food storage each month and to get a variety of items. Also, we have never had to step foot in the cannery-so it is really time saving too.
For those of you who want to order, I will put the order information online each month. You can make a check out to Darrell Saunders and then we can deliver it to you- or you pickup whatever. We want to share this resource with every body because it has been such a service to us.

I LOVE this book! I recommend it to all of you for summer reading. How tasteful Tolstoy writes. Anna Karenina is filled with passion, a longing for happiness, and a quest to understand the purpose of life. There is tragedy, betrayal, love, life and death.
My favorite character is Levin. He is the books moral compass for the reader and yet struggles with the meaning of life. He is always honest and hardworking although he goes through depression bouts because his understanding of the plan of life is lacking. He fails to find a meaning for his work day in and day out. Although the life of Anna Karenina is the main story in the book, the characters weave together intricately to clarify what Tolstoy percieves as the meaning of life and the way to achieve happiness. At the end of the book, through he eyes of Levin, Tolstoy sums up life's definition as man being in control of his own destiny and therefore being able to choose good and peace each day. In essence, no one is a victim of life. We all must each make our happiness and do all our works for God.
Love it!!! You should all read it! Let me know if any of you have read it already. I would be interested to know your thoughts on the book. I want to start War and Peace too- any readers?

Bees are so good for our yard but they were right on the sidewalk in a residential area so we had to take them out. We are totally morally oppossed to killing the Honey Bees considering the Honey Bee Shortage. But when I found out that the Wasps in the backyard are coniverous and eat the Honey Bees- those Wasps will be gone tonight!!!

Rachel was so sweet to go on rides with James. She was a good friend and made him feel safe. Even though James is our little dare devil he cried when the rides went too fast and high. With Rachel though he was calm and happy. Thanks Rachel!!
This was right before James fell asleep. He had been crying in the stroller and so I laid him back and with in seconds he was asleep. This was the smile he gave me right before lights out. I thought it was a cute smile saying: "thanks for finally giving me the nap I need."
Over all our day was fun but a bit chilly. Robert went on lots of big rides and Mom rode Puff the Magic Dragon with James. It was fun to be with all our family and cousins.
