Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Tonight is the boys' study that we host. I spent the afternoon trying to get the house cleaned up a bit more than I've been doing lately. We have a guest speaker coming, and I don't know who it is, so I don't want him to be surprised by a less-than-spotless house....well, he will be anyway, but the point is that I put in the effort, right? The guys have been doing a great job...still a little rowdy, but overall learning a lot. We have a second leader that's been coming each week and he seems to really enjoy the boys, the teaching, and relates to them well. I've been trying to sit in (out of sight) too so I can hear what they're learning and get to know the boys a bit. I could sit in in sight, but sometimes subjects come up that I'm not sure they would discuss in front of me, so I try to lay low. ;) I'm usually in the kitchen, so they know I'm there, but not so conspicuous as if I were sitting right in the room with them.

I'm glad to say most of us are well....some have sniffles but nothing serious. We're just trying to avoid passing it around a second time. We did go to the library yesterday so that was exciting.

I have to go make dinner so we can all eat before the boys arrive, then I need to take Hailey to get some shoes. We'll do that, then be back in time for the babies' bedtimes. We might be able to squeeze in an ice cream cone before coming back home.

Later, all.

Love your choice of music!

Yes, effort counts for a lot.
Wish I was there to hang in the kitchen with you :)
