Tami still with us.

Thursday- Nov. 14, 2013
This day is Elder & Sister Harris's preparation day so we were up and ready to go to Nauvoo for part of the day and then to drive Tami and the Children to Peoria, Illinois.  Ken will drive from Chicago and meet them at the Hotel.  They fly home Friday morning about 6:00 am.
Here we are at the Family Living Center to make a rope.  Elder Scott is teaching how to make a rope.

 Here is Caroline turning the wheel to make a rope and Kyler.

Rt. Mark is turning the wheel because Caroline got tired. Then Kyler says I want a turn so below he is turning the wheel all by himself to make the rope.

        We couldn't believe Kyler was strong enough to turn that big wheel but he is a tough boy.

 Caroline and Tami are holding this paddle while Sister Harris is turning the big wheel.

                                                                                                                     Kyler says I want to help.

                          Mark is turning another thing that helps in making the rope.

               Caroline is whipping the ends of the rope.  She is doing a great job.

        As you can tell it takes the whole family to make the rope so here they are finishing the rope.

Sister Campbell told us about how the bread was baked at the Brick Oven and then we had a test of  the wheat bread, it was soft and Yummy!!!

          Here we are holding the Temple Plate.   Mark, Caroline, Sister Harris( Grandma), and Kyler.
We are entering into the Sarah Granger's Home.  Sister Monney is greeting us.

                        This little plant is growing inside the window sill, how interesting is that.
                                             Sister Monney showing the Parlor room.
                   Here is the original Bible Sarah's husband, Hirum gave her and he was not a member.  
That is so thoughtful of him.
 This is up stairs the rocking chair that Brigham Young made and was given to Sarah or her husband bought it for her, we don't really know.
           To the left is her original  trouseau chest in the bottom corner and here is a spinning wheel                                                                  that might be like one she used.
This is the bedroom.  Isn't the baby rocker so adorable.

Elder Harris(Grandpa), Tami, Sister Perkes, Sister Harris(Grandma), Kyler, Mark, and Caroline.

                We went to the Cheap Boots & shoe shop.  Caroline, Grandma, Tami,Mark, and Kyler.

 Here is inside the boot and shoe shop.  Kyler laying down on a bench. Caroline, Elder & Sister Harris and Mark.  It was really interesting because Elder Harris's ancestor was a tanner in a boot shop in Nauvoo.

We went to the Lyon Drug and Variety Store after the Sarah Granger Home.

Kyler in front of the Lyon Drug Store. 

 Caroline at the Drug store part.

Here is Kyler and Caroline at were they trade food to buy other things.
Sister Murray teaching about the Bee Box. It is such a fun story how to find a Bee Hive.
Pictures of the Nauvoo Temple.

 Kyler, Mark, and Caroline with the Nauvoo Temple behind.
 Sister and Elder Harris (Grandma & Grandpa) in front of Joseph and Hyrum.  The beautiful top of the Nauvoo Temple and the special words that are written in the front of the Temple.

Caroline, Mark, Kyler, and Elder (Grandpa) Harris------ Kyler and Caroline running down the hill to the car. What a fun day we have had. In the afternoon we left Nauvoo and drove Tami and the kids to Peoria to their Motel.  Ken will drive from Chicago to meet them at Peoria, their flight will leave Friday morning early like 6:00 am or so.  Elder Harris and I drove back  to Carthage. On the way we finally found a place where we could eat supper.  This waiter got to talking to us and said his father is LDS and is moving to live with him in Lewis Town. He has been looking for the church so he could take his father to it.  Their is not a ward in Lewis Town so he has to drive him out of town to a ward.  We hope that his father will get his son interested in the Gospel.  His father isn't very healthy so his son has got a doctor and knows where a hospital is if his father needs it.  We were so happy to have family come and visit us.  The Gospel is true and I love you all.
