Tonight’s FHE activity: snowflakes! Irony #1: there is very little snow in Seattle. #2: this was supposed to teach the kids (according to the lesson plan in the Friend magazine) that we are all unique and loved in the eyes of God. Brian could not help but point out that the belief that “no two snowflakes are alike” is untrue. To which I retorted that no two snowflakes can occupy the same space at the same time and therefore have unique experiences despite being molecularly identical
