“So … what are your plans for today, Son?”

“Our son went off to college, fell in love, got married, and had twins last year. We really ought to check his blog more often.”

Our stake had a service project for Pioneer Day where we shoveled pathways around a local lake. One sister noticed her children complaining about the work and asked them, “Do you think the pioneer children complained the whole time they were on the plains?”

Her six-year-old spoke up, “Oh, Mom, the pioneers didn’t have planes!”
