Pioneers in Moscow

In keeping with Pioneer Day in Utah (July 24th) I want to show you some of the many pioneers here in Moscow.  I think the best way to describe them is from the hymn, "They, the Builders of the Nation."

"They, the builders of the nation,
Blazing trails along the way;
Steppingstones for generations
Were their deeds of ev'ry day.
Building new and firm foundations,
Pushing on the wild frontier
Forging onward, ever onward,
Blessed, honored Pioneer!"


"Ev'ry day some burden lifted,
Ev'ry day some heart to cheer,
Ev'ry day some hope the brighter,
Blessed, honored Pioneer!"

"List our song of adoration,
Blessed, honored Pioneer!"


  1. What great looking people mom! You fit right in too! Wonderful pictures and wonderful thoughts! We love you!

  2. I am so glad you are up and posting! I love the pictures and it is so fun to see what life is like for you there now. We missed seeing you in SLC this summer. I can't wait to read more! Love you!
