Family Tree

Today in church I taught the children the importance of Family History. I gave them an example of how fun it is to learn about someone in your family tree. I started with my own. I but pictures of mine on there and let them point to a certain one, and then I would tell them a story or information about it. I love stories, I remember stories better than anything else.
It was fun, and when I pointed to Jeff and I's wedding picture and asked this 4 year old if they knew who it was...she said " NO"! :)
Working with children can be rough on your self esteem at times! They are very honest! :) But I sure love them! They teach me soooo much more than I ever teach them!
They probably left knowing more about me than they ever wanted to know! But they left sure excited to read off the questions I gave them to interview their family members.
How grateful I am to remember my ancestors, to have such an amazing family and to know that Families Can Be Forever! 
Good night dear friends!
