Playing Hookie

Jared and Anna have been working on some goals and as a reward in accomplishing their goals they each picked out a movie they wanted to see. Jared's goal was practicing the piano everyday without complaining. He really wanted to see the new Harry Potter movie so it made for the perfect incentive(bribe). We surprised him one school day afternoon and picked him up and went to the movie theater. He could not have been more excited. He is such a great kid!

Anna has been working on her own little list and her incentive/bribe was to go see Tangled. She loved the date we had and the movie.

Not sure how I feel about the whole bribery thing even though it produced results, but I loved spending one on one time with the kids.

Annual Temple Tailgate

The last few years we have met up at the Washington D.C. Temple to view the lights and have some Hot cocoa and treats with some friends. The lights were beautiful this year.

We met up with Kevin's best bud, Jeremy, for just a bit in the Visitors Center. Next time we hope to see the rest of his family.
One of the fun things about going to the temple is that you never know who you might run into. These two lovely young ladies were two of my Young Women back in Virginia. They are both in College now and were on a Temple trip with some people from Buena Vista. It is great to see how the "kids" you teach grow up into wonderful young adults.

Always a great time!
