I know we are not suppposed to desire church callings, but I have the greatest church assignment. I get to have the 8-11 year old girls come to my house twice a month to play!

I hope you enjoyed reading those as much as I did! Some of their answers were really sweet, I only gave you the funny ones to munch on. Under activty day ideas, one girl wrote, learn about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, movies about the Bible, Jesus, and God, and learn about the Bible. I hope I can fulfill this young ladies expectations.

I am so excited to work with such a vibrant, smart, funny, and good group of little women. They will be a joy in my life.

The best part is at their age, you can do absolutely anything and they will be totally excited about it.

The biggest surprise to me was after our first meeting was through, they scattered throughout my house, found the toy room, and destroyed it. I forgot that they are still so young that they will want to play with toys! And there attention span isn't quite so big. Good thing we only meet for one hour. I'm thinking to keep my house from getting destroyed we should meet at the church.
