It's Autumn Time‏

We've seen big square bales of hay, just like home.  Only these are straw bales.  What was green earlier in the year was wheat and has now been harvested, and the fields plowed and re-planted.


This is typical of the English country side.  It is always beautiful!.  Often when we are in the country, there will be a roadside stand with vegetables, flowers, produce, eggs, etc.  Customers are trusted to take the food, etc., and drop the money owed into a box or bottle sitting near by.


Here are some crazy YSAs at Cythnia's birthday party!


These are some of our favorite missionaries either getting transferred or going home.

It's Autumn time and everything is still beautiful as the leaves and the land changes color.

Update

(My parents sent this last week but I have had a virus on our computer that woudln't let me log-in to Blogger)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On P-Day we decided to visit Castle Howard, one of the dozens of castles in England.  This one is lived in all year round.  It is also known for its beautiful gardens, but we went too late in the year to get in on the gardens.



More castle pics.



What's left of the gardens.


These are the walls around the castle.


This is a typical family home evening.  This one is about service.  We are using the subjects from The Strength of Youth. Sister Wilkinson, Stake Relief Society President taught this particular lesson.


In our travels from village to village we found a small river in the woods.
