Conference

We were up this morning and over to the Barlow to put the taco soup into crockpots  to warm while we were gone. Brother Holtom lives about 45 minutes from us.  The bad part is that you have to travel on toll roads so it cost 8 dollars each way to go to his home.  We enjoyed being in his home.  He is a member of the stake presidency in his area.  He is a professor at Georgetown which is a Catholic university.  There is such a special spirit in his home and it was so nice to be with the LDS student that attend Georgetown.  We had a nice breakfast and they enjoyed the cinnamon rolls that I took.  He is so kind to invite the students to his office if they are having problems or need an escape.  He said he had a listening ear and if they were struggling with the school he might be able to help.
Brother Brooks Holtom is in the picture with two of his children.  The rest are Georgetown students.  Two are attending law school there.  

We arrived back at the Barlow just as conference was starting.  Sean had made sure the door was unlocked and the TV on.  Once again we basked in the light of the conference.  After conference we had lunch.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the taco soup.  I think we fed about 25+ people.  Everyone got their fill and we watched afternoon conference.  I can't wait to get the conference talks in written form.  I need to study several of the talks in more detail.  

It is hard to imagine that next conference we will be home.
