Couple of Captains

I've got lots of fond memories watching Saturday morning cartoons and the plethora of cold cereal commercials that would run in between them. Miraculously, it didn't matter how much sugar was included per serving, every one was "part of a complete breakfast."

This might of been because of the fortified vitamins and minerals that they always seemed to include. Of course, I had no idea what any of this meant, I just knew that there was no chance my Mom would purchase Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs no matter how many vitamins and minerals they managed to cram into them.

(By the way, I've never cared for Cap'n Crunch--it always tears up the roof of my mouth.)

Social Media

If we had to give up the extremely catchy "Follow the Prophet" song to get rid of social media, so be it.

Your October 2023 General Conference Activity Packet

It's hard to leave a special someone back home.
General Conference is right around the corner! Let me help you get ready by providing the Ward Cartoonist General Conference Activity Packet. Once again, the packet is available in English, Portuguese (thanks, Dani), and Spanish (thanks, Gaby).

In addition to the packet, I've got a number of products that can help you corral your rambunctious crew for 10 hours Conference weekend.

I've got a number of activity books available at fine bookstores everywhere:
Granted I'm wildly biased, but I believe these activity books come with a level of effort and care that far exceeds anything else on the market.

If you are more interested in a laugh than solving a puzzle, I'd suggest ordering a copy of Mission Daze. It includes nearly 500 comic strips tracking a missionary from mission call to homecoming. 

And then there are the apps (iOS only, sorry!). Your kids will love LDS Scripture Heroes or Book of Mormon Adventure on the Apple App Store.

Finally, if it is free that you are after, you could do worse than the Ward Cartoonist Activity Page Newsletter. Your subscription will get you a printable activity page delivered to your inbox every Friday morning.

Viking Investigator

He could always go into another career after baptism where pillaging and plundering are acceptable--like politics. (Thank you, I'll be here all night long.)

Wrangler Wear

A quick google search reveals that Wrangler doesn't make dress suits anymore. (Although you can buy some vintage Wrangler suits online that look exactly as you'd expect them to.)
