Our first 10 days in Old Nauvoo...Yeah

We were busy moving into our home.  We really like the location which is just a half a block (South) with a clear un-obstructed of the temple.  We have an excellent view of the Mississippi river and with the beautiful sunsets.  We were fitted for our site clothes and were assigned to different sites.  Because of a bout of sickness all of the site schedules were mixed up which means we got fully engaged because after one presentation we were giving the tours.  In fact many times we were the only one there.  I had one big group of 17 people (4 unrelated families) at the Browning gun shop.  I asked if they had seen Rendezvous (the play which we sing and dance in) they hadn't: I said there is a song which says "If you just move over you'll make a new friend", so they bunched up.  At the end of the presentation they clapped.  Mom and I at the 70's Hall last Sunday gave a presentation to an area 70 from New Zealand Elder Thomson meanwhile Bryan and Tonya were with his friend and brother in the 70's Elder Dudfield (small world).
   Elder Horlacher is doing a great job and keeps everyone Laughing.    I finally had to put my foot down and say sometimes we must be serious.  ha ha     Anyway it has been a wonderful 10 days, Last night we had the field burn.   This is where they let a block of praire grass grow, and never touch until a certain date and then they burn it to show how fast a praire fire moves.   The block burned in under 4 minutes.    Makes you never want to caught in one.   I ran into John Roberts and his wife and son.  What a small world it is.   Tonight is our first time on stage for Rendezvous,   I'm sure we will have a story to tell next time.     Our try outs went great, (really just OK)  but we were sure relieved when they were done.    We didn't sing If the Savior Stood Beside Me, but we sang   Carry On, Carry On.   Elder Horlacher still couldn't get through it.   Our first Sunday we watched the  The Cokeville Mircle.   What a wonderful, powerful, Movie.   It will be released In June.   I encourage you to go see it with your family.   The principal from the Cokeville elementary came and TC Christensen was here as well as the main girl character.  TC also did the Seventeen Mircles, etc.
