Dinner and a Movie Anyone?

Every Tuesday night the kids and I watch a movie on my laptop.  Unfortunately because we have no electricity at the farm, we only make it through part of the movie to conserve the laptop battery.  I have to bring the laptop into town on the weekends to recharge and the kids look forward to finishing the movie the following Tuesday.

Last Thursday I came back from my run to find that the kids had set up their own dinner/movie theater.  Who needs a laptop/TV when you can watch a shovel?

Here’s a video of the kids singing a song they learned about the skeletal system.

Here are some other random pictures:

One of my dearest sweet mission companions had her ward do a sub for santa for these kids.  Here they are in their brand new clean clothes.  They were so happy to have new clothes and they all looked so good.

Liseli was our guest speaker during Science class a few weeks ago.  We were talking about babies and their needs.  I love having that little morsel around.


My sister sent me an awesome package (happiest day of my  life when I got it) and inside she put some Valentine’s for the kids.  This was the Friday before Valentine’s Day.  They thought these little cards were amazing!

I went to visit my sweet little Evans.  He stays with his Aunt and Uncle and their family.  Sweetest people in the world.  It was so nice to finally meet them.

Friday morning I made all the kids go on a run with me and then we did some “training” on the football pitch.  It was raining, wet, and muddy and we all had a blast.
