This evening Dave, the girls and I were invited over to dinner at one of my former co-workers house. They are the nicest family ever! Chris and his wife were very sweet and helped me with a project for my cultural counseling class. They belong to the Mormon Church and I researched their religion for a project. They were kind enough to invite me to their church and their house. I was supposed to have dinner with their family (they have 10 kids ranging from 7 months to 17 years old) but I had to cancel because Christa found out she had cancer and I was too torn up to go over. Chris called yesterday to invite us over and we had a great time.
Sophia and Isabella loved playing with their kids. Everyone was so kind! The thing I really enjoyed was the family night part. All the kids had roles and everyone sang, read scripture, acted skits, etc. I told Dave I would really like to incorporate a one night a week family night where we turn off all electronics and plan different family activities. I could see reading a few books, maybe playing a board game, etc. The girls love stuff like this:)
One more thing. Today I pulled out my sewing machine and could not find an important piece. I said the prayer to Saint Anthony (Patron Saint of lost items)...(and while saying the prayer I said that I understand it is not a real important item)...A couple of minutes later I tried looking for it in one more place and.......FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
