Be a Missionary Now and more

In January Leah asked me to help her put together a presentation on our church for her class at school.  After it was all done she told me that she hadn't actually asked her teacher yet.  I had a couple of long discussions with the teacher and in the end decided that Leah would not do the presentation.  I would be perplexed if she had come home from school and said that someone else had done one, and it seemed like the school really didn't want her to, but couldn't tell her no because they have religion classes in the school.  I was also told that she couldn't tell any of our doctrine/believes just the activities that Leah is involved with.  So I didn't see the point.  She was very disappointed and I was sorry that it didn't work out.  I am very proud of her for being brave.

Leah thought the cream in her hot chocolate look super cool.

I found a few exercises for couples the other day.  In this one the first person does a plank and the second does push-ups on their back.  It is very hard to hold the plank when someone is pushing on your back.  I only held the plank through one of Dave's push-ups and barely that.  The kids thought this looked fun also, so we all gave it a try.  Cora was in on it too but someone had to take the picture.

I hate pictures of myself.  I never take them and if the kids do I erase them from the camera.  Dave said I am going to be 90 years old and the kids will have no idea what I look like.  So I left this for my posterity.  Isn't it nice!!!

I wish I would have known about the sock bun when Leah was in ballet.  There are no bobby pins in it and is stays.  Cora was doing cartwheels and handstands and it didn't move.

  1. Love your portrait Char - maybe you should frame it;) Can't wait to see you guys on the 17th. The kids seem so much bigger in these pictures.

  2. Loved the fact that your daughter did such a great job on her poster. Too bad she couldn't share it, but she should be very proud of the work she did. Great job. And I loved your picture. You are so cute Char, you should have lots of pictures of you on your blog.
    Love, Aunt Sheila
