Ok... you know when you are getting ready to post a comment on someone's blog and it makes you type in a totally random nonsense word? I've decided I'm going to start typing that at the end of any of the comments that I make... because it amuses me!
Well, I'm pretty much healed up from my surgery. I've got some pretty great pics that the doctor took of my insides while he was in there. If enough people comment on this post, I may be pursuaded to put them up. I'm pretty much convinced that nobody reads my blog anymore since I took forever to post again... or maybe because I'm random and boring in my posts. Anyway...
Our Grand Am, which we had for longer than we've had McKie, died on Monday. Luckily, our super duper awesome brother Jeremy came to the rescue with a little Mazda that we'll be able to use. It gets great gas mileage and it's super clean. Thank goodness for that!
We had Cam's kids over yesterday and they stayed the night and then went to church with us today. It was actually not too bad. I was a bit fearful of having 6 kids 7 and under, but they were pretty well behaved. We played some BAND HERO today for a bit, and the kids loved it and Jaran and I laughed a lot. I taught the class that Taylin was in, and we were talking about the golden plates and the book of mormon. I decided to make some "silver plates" out of aluminum foil. I then created some characters that were the alphabet and a key that said what the characters were. The kids then had to put on a pair of my glasses with the lens out and decipher things I wrote... then they wrote things themselves. It was their own "translating" experience. Taylin loved it so much I had to make her one of her own and she made up her own little characters... pretty cute! I felt good that the kids liked the idea so much. I'm thinking about finding some gold foil and making all the kids their own.
Well, it's time for me to stop procrastinating and write a history paper. Take Care!
