Guess who’s writing the blog this week? Wilson!!! And I don’t know what to do so, hi. OK, I just received word that I am going to do highs and lows for the week so here it goes!
Highs and Lows
-Shopping for back to school clothes
-Czech restaurant (got crispy chicken tenders)
-Sports night (played basketball with the missionaries and made 3 pointers.)
-Eating a raw fish wrap at the mall.
-Going to Praguewarts (new school) with mom, and going to lunch after.
-Going to girls’ camp in Brno with Dad.
-Baking yummy treats.
-Starting quilting lessons with Heidi Moore over Skype.
-Waiting in a classroom for 5 hours for dad to finish his stuff in Brno.
-Stressing out about school.
-Going with mom to get new shoes.
-Going to the park to play baseball and playing on playground.
-Having dinner with the missionaries.
-Read The Hunger Games series (really good. But was it just me or did it depress anyone else?)
-Elder Knapp teaching me how to do a Rubiks cube.
-Game night with young single adults and a few missionaries.
-Going to the park and playing baseball.
-Playing basketball with the elders.
-Having some senior missionaries over for dinner.
-Talking to my cousins Sam and Dallin on the phone.
-Getting new shoes.
-Going to Old Town Square.
-Watching Hyrum’s face turn green after telling him that he was eating raw fish. :)
-Sitting around the house bored or missing things and people in Salt Lake.
-back to school dates with each kid
-learning from our visiting general authority and the District Presidents and James in church today.
-singing "love is spoken here" as the closing song in sacrament meeting. I love how the czech hymn book has regular hymns mixed with primary songs, so we sing all of them in adult meetings. It was awesome how the whole congregation knew to do the girl verse, then the boy verse, then the duet. All these grown ups sang it with the kids with enthusiasm! It's such a pretty song, no matter what language! The primary songs always remind me of the imperial 2nd ward kids and how much I loved singing time with them.
-standing at the window in a row with Evie and Wilson and Hyrum, looking at what was going on down on the street, then hearing Evie say, “look at what we’re eating!” she was eating chocolate, I was eating a cookie, Wilson was eating a pancake, and Hyrum was licking nutella off of a knife. We laughed at how unhealthy we were as we people-watched. Then George appeared and when I asked where he had been, he said, “in the bathroom. Doing pushups.”
-just trying to figure out my balance still, of how to be a missionary and a mom and a wife. Lots of tears the other day, but I am learning lots, so I guess it’s not really a low.
-feeling sad for people that I love who are facing hard stuff
- Girls Camp in Moravia with Evie, 20 remarkable young women and their leaders from the Czech Republic
- Time spent with Elder Adler (our Area Authority Seventy from Germany)
- Back to school dates
- Where’s Waldo with George
- Teaching with the Dejvicka Sisters on Tuesday night. Great investigator, great spirit, exceptional lesson.
- Traffic jam on the drive home from Brno Saturday
- A couple that are too low to even bother talking about
And now some pictures of our week, Yay!
