Light the World: Light the Family Tree

The gist of the story is true — my grandpa and his brother used to ride their horses to the schoolhouse every morning and fire up the coal stove. That's how my grandpa learned the value of an education; that's how they were able to pay for their schooling.

Fast forward several decades, and my son found himself mucking out stables in exchange for piano lessons. It's not quite the same thing, but the lesson learned was the same.

On a related note, there's a really cool site you should check out. BYU's Family History Technology Lab has created some fun games you can play with your relatives! Log on with your Family Search ID and see what they have. My favorite is the matching game (no, it's not like Mutual for your ancestors). Give it a shot — it's fun!
