Hey girls! It's me again :) Did you all have a fantabulous Saturday?
I got up at 7am, then slept back in until 7:30am. hehehe. I got up, got ready, and started madly preparing for my part in the primary activity. I was loading the truck and gathering what I needed, and making lists of the things that I still needed to do.
I took Jake and Eme and Joe and Jim to the activity, and Captain America took Tom to his last game. The kids and I swung by the Commissary and bought frosting and mints. The last 2 things I needed for my project.
We got to the church, and brought all of our stuff inside. I'd brought a TON of fabric so we could dress up in "Jesus' time clothes". Eme was convinced she could wear her civil war clothes, and I kept telling her, Wrong Time Period. hehehe.
We set up tables for my room, and the CD player, and all the supplies, and got it all organized. It looked pretty good when we were done. Then we all got into costume.
Kids started showing up at 10ish, and we started going to stations at 10:15pm. It really went quite smoothly. We had a family with each group of kids (5 groups), to be in charge. The groups were about 6-10 kids.
My station was about the birth of the Savior. We talked about his birth, and where, and when, and such, then made the Nativity scene on a plate with frosting, cookies, and candies. It was easy enough for even the little kids to do. And it took the entire 12 minutes that we had, then they'd leave, and the next group would come in.
The activity was over by 11:30, and we cleaned up for about 30 minutes, then it was time to go home. I fixed lunch for the kids, and we put all the stuff away that we'd taken. Captain America and Tom got home around that time.
I worked on my Sharing/Singing time lesson for tomorrow a bit. I'm gonna do the football game again, but this time with the 5th Article of Faith song. And then do another song where the kids fill in the blanks for the words of the song, and for every 3 words they fill in, they get to put a part on Mr. Potato head. Of course, that means that I must find a Mr. Potato Head - hehehe. Oh Wal-Mart.....
The kids had fun playing during the afternoon. Jake and Tom played with Leslie's kids, and Joe and Eme played on Starfall (educational computer site). Jimmy kinda floated between the 2 of them.
I finally got in the shower at about 4pm, and got ready. It's Laurie's b-day, and the girls and I are taking her out. Dinner and a movie. Should be a good time. Hilary's gonna be her any time to pick me up. I'll try and pop back on here after the movie and blog some more. Woohoo :)
Yeah, it's after midnight, and I'm not blogging anymore - hehehe. I did take a TON of pics, and had a great time, so I"ll have to blog about that tomorrow :)
