Monday's Matter: Spiritual Vertigo

At our home at at millions of others around the globe Monday nights are set aside for family.  A Family Home Evening!

We LOVE history and are so blessed to have so many wonderful stories from my husband's father who wrote down his memoirs.  He was born in 1921 in Ohio.  He lived through the Great Depression, loved baseball and tried out to pitch in a minor league team as a young man, he joined the Army Air Corps and served during WWII,  he lived in tropical Florida, moved to tropical Townsville, Australia, he was a photographer, a husband, a father and an adventurer at heart.

For tonight's FHE, and in honor of him, I thought it might be fun to watch and discuss this awesome video about a WWII fighter pilot and have a paper airplane contest!
