Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

Home church

On Friday, there was a meeting and a baptism before church, then church, then meetings after church. Sterling and I, and by default the girls, begged off after Sacrament Meeting and went home. But I felt bad pulling the girls out of Primary, so before I went upstairs to put Sterling down for a nap, I told them to plan a session of home church for us.

This is what Magdalena came up with.

The video (scripture video on was a bust since internet on the old computer they use was being finicky. But the rest went just fine. We even used a podium/microphone they made out of a cardboard box, a wooden dowel, and an empty toilet paper roll.

I'm still sad they missed Primary, but it was kind of fun doing our own church at home. Especially since the girls planned it. They got all the essentials, too - talks, singing, and watermelon!
