They planned a missionary-themed youth conference. Doug and I taught workshops on Friday and Saturday.

Many houses in Florida have an area known as the Florida room. Our house is too old for such a modern innovation. I guess in Victorian times it would have been called a conservatory, except that it doesn’t have a glass roof nor glass walls. Doug calls it my office. Suffice it to say that I have my sunny space that overlooks the garden, and it makes me happy.

This tennis event in Miami used to be called Sony Ericson. Doug and I loved attending before the mission. We came down with Rick and Linda and Natalie Teets.
It was awesome. Natalie got autographed tennis balls for Doug from quite a few of the tennis greats, including Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic. I did an object lesson for the missionaries last year using a clip from Djokovic and I have to say, I really enjoyed watching him play, among others, of course!

Tru and Elliot caught 14 fish the first two days at the Birdhouse. Truman even rigged up a fishing pole from a dead twig that was successful. Cleaning the fish was an unpleasant chore, however, and they decided that catch and release was definitely the way to go from then on.
