        Back at the beginning of March we completed the Book of Mormon as a family for the very first time. In case you are unfamiliar with this book of scripture, it is over 500 pages long and has similar language to the Bible only set in the new world. Guess how long it took us to read it? almost 5 1/2 years!!! That's right folks. We started when Gabe was only 18 months and he would repeat the words we told him to. He will be 7 in May. That is how long it takes if you are only reading 5 verses a night 5 times a week. Since our start we have added three more children to our family and three little voices that can parrot. (well 2 more I guess, since Ruthie technically doesn't participate yet.) Gabe now reads verses solo but the rest still need help. We celebrated by taking them all to Chuck 'e Cheese. This time around we are reading 10 verses a night to speed things up a bit. I think they can probably handle it if we stop to explain the things we are reading. Wahoo! Good job little family. First of many times to come.
