Tres de Mayo

We went to the temple last night, and now we're feeling a lot better, I think, but wouldn't you know it, the week we're already super busy doing stuff is the week Thursday Night Activity takes a bunch of early preparation. There's no way I'll have enough time to report much of our trip, which of course actually has report-worthy stuff this time.

For Thursday Night Activity, we're having a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. There was kind of a big deal about using the word "fiesta," because when the bishop announced it, he apologized for calling it a party, because he didn't know the Spanish word for party. His counselors filled him in, so it immediately became a fiesta, and when it got announced again the same day as a party, the announcer was corrected. That being the case, I think it would be funnier to call it a Tres de Mayo Fiesta, but oh well.

Anyway, I got put in charge of preparations for Pin the Tail on the Donkey, so now I have about forty donkey tails to cut out. At the last minute, I also got put in charge of finding a song for everybody to learn in Spanish, so now I've got a few copies of Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree in Spanish. Maybe I should have chosen something that was originally written in Spanish, but...oh well.

And now I still have tails to cut out and lyrics to staple together before our ride shows up in about fifteen minutes.

Today I'm thankful for having time between work and leaving early for the activity to get stuff ready, making lots and lots of progress on today's volume of Higurashi, having a ride to the activity after thinking we had one and finding out we actually didn't, and the super yummy pie leftovers we ate last night.
