So you think you can......paint?

We met at Sis Lisa's house again tonight and we had a GRRRREAT time! We might be few in numbers, but what we don't have in numbers we make up in class.....and talent. If you need proof, check out our projects we did tonight. We painted birdhouses. Everyone's was unique, just like our girls!
Interspersed with our painting frenzy, we listened to a little George Strait and checked out Margaret's new phone. We talked about the three challenges each of us was issued by the YW general presidency. They are: 1)Pray every day, 2)Read from the scriptures every day, and 3)SMILE! Sis Lisa told us that the problems or questions we are struggling with in life are often answered by reading in the scriptures.
Finally, we surprised Brooke with a "Welcome Back" cake and ice cream. Our YW meeting were just not the same when Brooke couldn't be with us!

Enjoying Easter Break!

Why is it that the weeks go by faster when you are on vacation from school? This week is flying by! The Young Women were the 'official' nursery sitters for the Relief Society gardening seminar held this Tuesday night. A big thanks to Chloe and Desiree (future YW) for doing most of the work though.
Here are a few pictures that were on Jordy's picture card that I thought you might enjoy. Most are from our summer 2008 Palmyra trip.
BTW, Elder Jordan Guthrie has been in the MTC 3 whole weeks now! He appreciates all letters and as of now is leading in the letter-count race!
If you want to write him, here is his address at the MTC:

Thanks to everyone who has been writing him already and to all those who are praying for our missionaries throughout the world!
