State Basketball

The Worland Warriors came in 4th in their region and so qualified for state, even though our team has a losing record. The team has improved each game and has come a long way since the start of the season.The first team we met was Cody which beat us handily by over 30 points back in December. Our boys were ready to beat them and we were ahead the ENTIRE game until the last seconds and lost by 1 point! It was heart breaking!  Then we faced Pinedale and won by 10 and then played for 4th place against Lander Valley and won by 5. Warriors came in 4th and fought hard the entire time. Andy was a rock star with numerous rebounds and points scored. He started every game and gave it his all. The photographer got a few shots of him during the three days of play in Casper.

This is just his back, #12, in the game against the Cody Broncs.

Sister Edholm - week 15


This week I was so thankful for the rain, because it washed all of the snow away. We had a really nice day on Friday, it was sunny and I only had to wear a jacket!!

We had such a good lesson with Lauren on Friday, just to add to the great weather!!

Yesterday was British Mothers Day and they had the "primary" sing in sacrament meeting, there were only 2 primary kids though, so the young women and young man, and Sister Truman and I went up and sang with them. It was really fun, I kind of miss being a primary kid!! Since Sister Truman goes home next week, it was her last Sunday in the Greenock Branch, so they had her bear her testimony in sacrament and they had a little munch and mingle afterwards for her, which was really nice. 

We have this family in our area that are Catholic and they feed us every week, they are the nicest family! Anyway, they invited us to go to a Catholic mass with them, so we did yesterday. It was super short, only like 30 minutes!! It was a pretty cool experience though, definitely something I will never forget!

Have a great week everyone!! :)

Blogs of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West

I was asked to write a blog post for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West where I work part time for the McCracken Research Library. I have been cataloging publications from the Winchester Repeating Arms Company and found some very interesting insights to employment and women in the early 1900s. I wrote a short blog post highlighting this collection that the library houses. You can check it out if you'd like, just click on the title below.

Sister Edholm -- week 14


Man oh man this week has been crazy!

We had Scotland South Conference this week and it was great! They talked all about the Book of Mormon and how we need to use it at every opportunity! 

We had a crazy blizzard come in the last couple of days, it was from Russia and it was called, "the beast from the east." In result of it we were banned from all travel and we had to proselyte only by our flat. 

I also received 2 hats this week haha! One was from this guy that we were talking to, trying to convince him to let us shovel his walkway, he didn't let us, but I wasn't wearing a hat and so he went inside and gave me one, what a nice man!! The second hat was from our neighbor, since we were stuck inside for awhile we made cookies for our neighbors and we even gave some to a random person on the street to start a conversation with her. We gave the cookies to our neighbor and she invited us inside and then said, "I saw you walking around without a hat yesterday, do you want one?" She went and grabbed the coolest hat I have ever seen! It is from Austria and it is all fur, lol I will send a picture next week because it is so cool! People are so nice!!

This next week should be back to normal, we are going to one of our islands this week, so that should be really fun! 


Have a great week!

Middle School band concert

Both Eric and Lucy play percussion in the middle school band, Lucy in 6th and Eric in 8th. They did well in the concert tonight.


Eric is in the far back right

You can see his head poking up behind the mic

Two short clips of Lucy:

I thought I had recorded more, but I must have not pressed the record button!

Here are links to two of Eric's pieces:

Sister Edholm -- week 13

Hello everybody! :)

This week was a good productive week until Friday when I had a little bit of an accident: 
I got out of the shower on friday and I slipped and my foot went under the door to the bathroom and I pulled it out and my big toenail had ripped OFF (okay well basically it was barely hanging on)! I didn't know what to do. I opened the bathroom door and yelled for Sister Truman, she came out and was like OH MY GOSH, what do I do? She called our mission president's wife and she thought she had said I lost my toe and so she was kinda freaking out and then realized that she had said toenail and she just said to elevate it and put pressure on it until it stopped bleeding. I didn't really want anyone pressing on it though because it hurt and we needed to pull the toenail the rest of the way off. SO ANYWAY, I laid on my bed and we called this lady in our branch that is a nurse and she came over and pulled it off and dressed it for me and then was nice enough to take us to breakfast, but pretty much the rest of the day we had to stay in because it hurt too bad to put my shoes on and walk. lol anyway there you go, there's a cool and exciting story for you, there are pictures attached if you want to look.

I was reading in 2 Nephi 33 last week and I really liked the message in it. It is in verse 10 and it says: "And now, my beloved brethren, and also jew, and all ye ends of the earth, hearken unto these words and believe in Christ; and if ye believe not in these words believe in Christ, And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believed in these words, for they are the words of Christ, and he hath given them unto me; and they teach all men that they should do good."

The underlined portion is the part that I liked because it shows that as we come to know that what the prophets say are true we WILL believe in Christ because THEY ARE the words of Christ! I really liked that.

Read the Book of Mormon and study it!

Have an amazing week!
Sister Edholm
(I did not attach the pictures of her toenail, they were really bloody and I didn't want to gross everyone out!)

And more basketball

On Friday Worland hosted Newcastle in the last home game of the season. They beat them and are off to regionals next week.  Andy played a great game and David Huber, our awesome photographer, caught some great shots.

There's our number 12!

He made the basket! In the upper left hand corner you can see Brian, me, and Eric. Eric and I were having a conversation and missed his shot!
