Maryland Crab and other activities
We've been to get frozen yogurt and ice cream. We've cooked yummy dinners together. Last night we had Bee Bim Bop, a Korean dish. First G read the cute book to us and then we got the recipe, shopped for ingredients and then cooked and ate the meal. Yesterday John and I made our signature Beef Strogonoff which I put finishing touches on today and everyone enjoyed eating it tonight.
I got to help H finish off her requirements for her Faith in God award.
Today at church John and I spoke to the young men and young women about our missionary experiences. I think they enjoyed it because some of them came and told me afterwards and I could see lots of smiles on their faces while we were giving the talks. The Bishop and Stake President both came and told us that the things we said were just the things that the youth of the ward needed to hear. I don't usually like to give talks and I always stress, but it's fun to talk about our mission. We have so many wonderful, fond memories of our mission, the young adults that we worked with, the young missionaries that we worked with, the people we came to love, the gospel that we loved teaching. Really we loved everything about our mission.
Tonight Lana invited quite a few families over for ice cream sundaes and spending time together after dinner. I think there were about 6 families who came over. The kids ran around, played outside and inside, laughed, ate, wrestled, chased each other and just had a great time. The adults also enjoyed talking and we really enjoyed meeting Lana and Rob's friends.
Our time here is passing too quickly. We are enjoying being with Lana and Rob and their sweet children. We are loving the area and the people have been so welcoming and nice.
