For decorations we (the leaders) had photos from our weddings, we invited 3 newlywed couples to come talk to the girls and they also brought their photos. Sister Tilden had her great grandmother's handmade wedding dress to display.
Our handout was a mirror with vinyl stick-ons of a temple with the words "See yourself in the temple" and also a pretty ring and ribbon.
Then the girls divided into teams. Each team got a bride and 3 rolls of TP. They had 7 minutes to make a paper wedding gown. Sara Swenson's team won with their modern, fitted design. It was a lot of fun to watch.
Lastly the girls were given a tube of lipstick and using only their mouths they had to draw a temple. Charlotte won and her temple looked amazing! A lot of the girls did surprisingly well with that task.
The couples did a great job and I think the girls really enjoyed it and could relate to them, more importantly I think they heard some really great advice.
We ended with cake and some time to visit. I was happy with how everything went and consider it a success!

Today was my first day subbing for the new school year. I was supposed to be a rover but when I got there I found out I was assigned to PE. It was me and another sub. She was great, very energetic and fun. Very talkative. We had a good day. PE is generally easy. It was all outside though and it was SUPER hot so I came home so sweaty and a little sunburned. I would have dressed differently if I had known. I hopped in the shower and changed first thing after school, even before I picked up E from high school.
So this picture doesn't really have anything to do with anything except it's our cute Sierra, making a face her dad always did when he was sitting on a rock. Her new hobby is rock climbing so she lives in the perfect place for that and is having a lot of fun with that.
