The Ward seemed very friendly. The actual building was pretty cool. It was built around 1930, and was AWESOME. It had stained glass, and a bell tower, and was 2 stories. I guess it was one of the first original churchs built when El Paso was founded. Or something like that. Captain America could tell you the story. If he were here... Sniff. Sniff.
I've gotta say, though, it was the NOISEST Ward I've ever been in. And I've been in some noisey ones. From what I could see from where I was sitting, it appeared that 75% of the people had little kids. And even if everyones kids only made 3 noises during the whole of church, that's still a LOT of noise. Because of the sheer volume of kids - hehehe. And there was a lady 3 rows in front of us that had a son (maybe 6 or 7) who refused to sit quietly (I didn't see a dad, she was sitting by herself with 4 kids). I think the poor little guy must have had something "special" about him. The poor mom was struggling. She had 3 other little ones besides the "loud" one. About 1/2 way through, some nice man came and asked if he could help, and took out the boy. I'm glad that someone came to help her. I've been there/done that before. I'm sure she was grateful for the helping hand :)
So, I'm assuming that the program was good, but frankly, it was really hard to hear. But, the plus is that it made my kids look like angels - ROFL!!! See, you should always look for the good, in any situation - hehehe.
The kids enjoyed their Primary classes. Even Jimmy liked his. He was telling me that he didn't want to be a Sunbeam (turning 4 yrs old class), but wanted to go back to the nursery (18 months - 3 yrs). After church, he said he liked his class, and would stay in there. Hehehe, good thing, because he wasn't going back to nursery - LOL.
We spent a nice, relaxing day at home. No computer or video games on Sunday, so I didn't have to hear arguments about who's turn it was on the computer. Geesh! I hate those fights :) We did watch almost all of season 4 of Doctor Who. We brought out our pillows and sleeping bags (since everything else is on the moving truck) and laid on the Living Room floor and watched TV. It was a great time! Can't beat a good Doctor Who marathon :) (I love you, David Tennent (Dr. Who), but don't tell Captain America)
We were able to scrounge enough stuff out of the little food I packed before the movers packed the rest up, to make lunch and dinner. We ended up with Taco Mac N Cheese (which we renamed El Taco Maco - ROFL!), and pancakes for dinner. I need to go shopping after the movers leave. My cupboards are bare, just like old mother hubbord - hehehe.
I'm going at 7:30 am today to try and get the kids registered before the movers get here at 9am. Hopefully the school will let the kids start today. If not, I'll just have a house full of kids, and movers, and boxes. Sigh. They should let them. I took all the paperwork home and completely filled it out. I even made photocopies of my lease, SS cards, Birth certificiates, shot records, my ID. You name it, it's filled out and photocopied. hehehe. So, keep your fingers crossed for me :)
This request is from Angela. She's making invites to her 3 year olds B-day party. I thought this WordArt would also be good on pics of kids playing in the great outdoors. In trees, in tall grass, in the bushes. You name it, my kids are in it when it comes to playing outside - LOL!
