Last night, the Sister Missionaries brought Chorley and her husband to be, Tobias, over to get Sister Sessions to fit/make her a dress to wear for their marriage. They are cute kids. Tobias (pronounced here, toebeeas) is a member and they are getting married next Tuesday, then Chorley is getting baptized and they can start preparing for the temple. We hope to see that before we go home.
|Tobias has a trike, hence the green arm cover to guard from the sun. He wears the reverse cap and has his fanny pack change bag. Good guy. He wants to learn English . . . He is pretty good already.|
They broke at 10:05 for recess. During recess, they had a rice, macaroni, vegetable soup for a snack, then the girls played a weird game with some little collector's cards. Couldn't figure it out. Then . . . the boys pulled out marbles and got my attention. They played a sort of chase taw and a lagging game, so I showed them how we used to draw a circle and shoot the marbles out of the center. I didn't tell them the rules, but they had a great time shooting and they were pretty dang good.
|They were nailing all the marbles, so I increased the size of the circle. That slowed them down some. Look at those fingers. They developed some technique.|
We told them, "Kita-ay kita ma next Meiyercoles alas nueve", I think. It was supposed to mean we would see them next Wednesday at 9:00. I may have told them, well, just about anything. They smiled and walked us to the car. We will try again next week and hopefully, Sister S. will have more fun and will be of more use in the classroom. She is plenty busy sewing tonight. . .
Another interesting fruit. I found this under some trees in the driveway, but I have seen it for sale downtown at the markets. It is very pretty and red. I peeled it off and the center is a pearly white and has a seed in the middle. Again, a citrus taste was discovered, but the flesh around the seed really does not want to come off. We sucked on it a while, getting all the flavor we could then discarded the pit.
