Early Mornings, Fish Disease, and Childhood Glory

It has been an eventful week! On top of Grant starting his new job, which is probably post-worthy on its own, there are three other noteworthy transpirings (and yes, I know that's probably not a word):

1. Today, Grant went to church with just his scriptures and left with all of the seminary manuals... Yep, he's going to be an early morning seminary teacher. And this is not your regular early morning seminary-- this seminary starts at 5:45 AM. Oh snap- that'll be an adjustment. Grant is not exactly an early riser... Luckily he only teaches every third week.

This isn't the Grapevine seminary... but close enough...

2. Howard is diseased. Being the qualified veterinarians that we are, we diagnosed Howard with Ichthyophthirius multifilis. This is also known at the white spot disease, hence the picture. He hasn't been very active lately, mostly sitting around on the bottom or at the top of the tank. In addition he hasn't been eating and when he swims it's always in fast, darting motions. We purchased some "Quick Cure," aquarium salt, and have started heating his water with a candle warmer (sophisticated, I know). He's certainly improving.



3. For various reasons, Grant and I are a little late on our Christmas presents to each other this year. So this week, I got one of my presents. For school last week, I wrote a paper on Doug, one of my favorite television shows growing up. Grant was so clever and bought me the complete series of Doug! It includes over 100 episodes of the show from both Nickelodeon and Disney! You can guess what we've been doing with our spare time lately...

Doug is the best... really

I had early morning seminary at 6:00am every day of high school. Grant is lucky he only has to go every 3rd week! I've never heard of rotating seminary teachers!

Did yall have early morning seminary? I always tell Aaron he doesn't know how to sacrifice because he didn't have to wake up at 5am every morning...lol.

Yeah we were lucky and both had release-time seminary. I did zero-hour one year but it was at like 6:40 or something. Tomorrow's his first day! We'll see if he can stay awake all day :)
