A group of LDS women from Australia have been sewing wool sweaters for penguins. These sweaters aid in the survival of the birds after oil spills. Read more here.
Glad to know that their knitting skills are being put to good use :)

We celebrated Easter with our friends in a local Episcopal congregation. The service was very formal, fairly stylized, and quite interesting to this family of Mormons.
My favorite part was the communion (which they allowed everyone to partake of). The priest blessed the wafer, then handed it to me. It was a nice personal moment, to hear his prayer as he looked directly into my eyes and gave me the ‘host.’ Quite unlike the Mormon tradition. And we were able to refuse the wine without any offense, too. :)
There was a gorgeous floral cross outside (pictured above). The kiddoes also participated in an Easter egg hunt and got some fun Easter treats. :)
A few pics of the kiddoes in all their Easter finery are now uploaded to flickr for you all to enjoy…
