Friday Family History: Both Work and Play Required

I had a happy childhood.  As I look back to my growing-up years, I realize that not only did I have fun playing, I had fun working, too.  Fortunately, I have proof that I'm not just making this up.  

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement, "The Family:  A Proclamation to the World" way back in 1995.  Part of that statement reads, 
Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.
We had all of those things in our home, and I'm glad my parents took photos showing not only playing, but also working.  (I'll let you judge which photos fit in which categories.)

Have you taken photos of work?

  1. What a great collection of photos.

    I don't have many photos from my childhood, but all of my brothers and sisters and I worked on the farm and had lots of fun, too.

  2. Great pictures Kristi...really great wonderful memories to cherish.

  3. What wonderful pictures. You do look like you are having fun in all of them.


Thanks for making this a conversation. I love to hear your comments!
