I am getting ready to do some grocery shopping today and then tonight, despite the shopping, is pizza night: Little Caesers $5 large and a side order of breadsticks for a buck--once we get the other kids here we will probably have to switch to 2 pizzas and 2 breadstick sides. Grand total: $12--not bad for a night out for a family of 8!
On Wednesday nights we go to our church for their mid-week meetings. I love the mid-week format. They call it LCU (Life Change University) and it is structured in such a way that it is easy to find a topic of interest each "semester". Steve often has taught classes and when he does, I go to those, but other classes I have enjoyed have been on Creation Science, General apologetics (defense of the Faith), and more specific apologetics classes.
This semester, though, I am the teacher. Well, the teacher's assistant anyway! My friend Marie enlisted my help in teaching a class to young girls on Proverbs 31: 10ff. The big project we are working on is in the height of production right now: each girl is making a small pillow. Tonight I am taking my sewing machine and Marie is taking hers and hopefully we will helping a lot of the girls to sew their pillows around the edges, leaving a gap for the stuffing (next week?). This is a huge undertaking but especially so because we have about 24+ girls (quite a bit more than we should have allowed) and time is at a premium! I think we'll do all right but I expect this week and next to be kind of crazy!
What are you up to?
