What a great week! Some of the highlights - visiting with our oldest son Darin on his birthday last Sunday and with Darin's daughter Molly on her 8th birthday Friday! Taking five missionaries to the temple. A very successful ward indexing workshop Saturday morning and a ward lawn party yesterday afternoon. It seems like each day was full and busy, that's the way we like it - but we do need a little rest now and then. We were going to take a Sunday afternoon nap, but Wayne got a phone call to go with the Elders to take the sacrament to a ward member who is in the hospital, so up he jumped...
Here are pictures we took after our session at the Washington DC Temple. What a beautiful day. And we thought missionary families might enjoy seeing their sons, what great young men.
Yesterday (Saturday) our ward Family History Director and I put on an indexing workshop in the morning. We were pleased to have 15 people attend. Some were brand new to indexing, Ashley helped them understand what indexing is, and get registered and started. I took six who had computer experience and/or had done a little indexing into our computer room and they indexed with my help and supervision. Very successful event. In the late afternoon we had a "lawn party" at the church. So fun. We grilled hot dogs and had games, music, and visiting. Great turnout of about 70 people, some visitors, some less active. It was nice.
