Winter can be fun… sometimes Family

We at the Pearce household definitely prefer warm weather. Temperatures here in Salt Lake City lately have been between 20-40 degrees Fahrenheit. Emily does everything she can to get out of wearing a coat, even in below freezing temperatures. Our skin gets dry and cracked, and in this season it seems that sicknesses abound. Still, it’s possible to have fun in the winter, and we...

Fun at Home, and Leaving Again Family

I’ve had a few people ask about how things are going with our decision to stay home, rather than take our road trip. I have to say, they are going quite well! I have been working a lot more the past week or so on my business, because it’s the busy season right now for music teachers. Teachers everywhere are thinking about scheduling and getting...

Vacation Cancelled to Improve Family Unity Family

For the last several weeks, we have been thinking about taking a 2-3 week road trip across Idaho, Oregon, down the California coast, and back through Nevada. We wanted to get up where it’s a little cooler during the hot Utah August, give our new car some exercise, and spend time together seeing some new places. I was especially excited to see the California Redwoods....

Yes, I’m a nerd, and I’m sure my children will become nerds also (“cool nerds”, of course). :) Even my wife is more nerdy now that we’ve been married almost seven years! Long live computer nerds! Hey, at least...

Emily's Temple Family

Note: This post was written when we were still participating members in the LDS (Mormon) church. Please forgive any preachy-ness and understand that we no longer hold these views. Read Why I left the Mormon Church. For Family Home Evening on Monday, Jennifer did the lesson on Temples, why they’re important, and how we can be worthy to enter them. She also came up with...

Family

Since coming back from Panama, Jennifer and I have been amazed at how quickly life has hit us! It seems there is no end to the distractions that take us away from our family, and our focus on what’s most important. The first few days at home were wonderful, and we still had what we feel was a healthier mindset. We were still productive, we...
