Quick update

Well, it's been too long since I've posted, but I thought I should break my silence for this.

My daughter just got accepted into BYU's concurrent enrollment program. She'll attend Fall and Winter terms under this status, then will be able to start as a true freshman in the Spring. Not bad for a 15 year old.

Mom and dad are both doing fine.

Pride goes before the fall.

LDS folks teach/preach humility yet they seem to be the most prideful, arrogant and competative humans I have yet to encounter.

Actually, pride goeth before destruction, a haughty spirit is what goes before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18), but I don't think we're talking about finding joy in our children's accomplishments.

The pride we need to avoid is feeling that we can succeed without God. Certainly, we've sought His help in teaching our daughter, and encouraged her to seek His help in everything she sets her hand to.


Perhaps though, I shouldn't be feeding the trolls.
