Once Elisabeth finished reading the Book of Mormon last year, she decided the New Testament would be next and she finished it last week! We've told the children that when they finish a book of scripture they get to go on a dinner date with mom and dad so this weekend Elisabeth choose Cafe Rio for dinner. We like to do a dinner date because it's a good setting for us to not only celebrate, but also to talk with her about things she learned, things she liked reading or things that might have been confusing to understand.
Most every Wednesday Nora and I shop at Sprouts because it's their Double Ad day which means they honor the sales from last week as well as the upcoming week so there are lots of good prices. And their produce(and large bulk section with tons of grains and some treats) is always fantastic and a great price which is the majority of what I buy, so it's a fabulous place to shop any day of the week.
The boys on the other hand, were less than thrilled, but they took one for the team. It's called compromise and we do this a lot in marriage and in families and with loved ones...sometimes we(the girls) attend other sports events with the boys or watch them on TV, even though we'd rather be doing something else. And isn't it wonderful that we get an opportunity to do something selfless? It builds character. Scott may, or may not have taken a little siesta. I sure love this good man!
