This certainly has been a week of last-minute plan changes. Gaston and Alice showed up last night after hanging out with Gaston's brother. The original plan was for them to sleep at our place, hang out with Gaston's brother today, and all go to Disneyland tomorrow. But some time during the course of yesterday, Gaston was hit with a massive head cold, and was in no condition to play hockey with his brother or go to Disneyland the next day, so they headed back up north this morning (also in an attempt to expose us to infection for as brief a time as possible).
Of course, despite the canceled Disneyland plans, this turned out to work very much in our favor, because we have approximately 16-17 days of work and 14 days to do it in. (Maybe less, but it's hard to tell without having, y'know, done the work.) So right now we're going to post a video, and maybe later we'll type up something about Type-0 for posting later in the busy busy week.
See, what happened was, I was preparing my Primary lesson for today, and I discovered that there's a website with illustrated videos of scripture stories, and it's kind of awesome, and kind of hilarious. The story that went with the lesson is from the Book of Mormon, and when artists paint scenes from Book of Mormon stories, I get the feeling there's a lot of guessing going on about the kind of fashion they wore. And I also get the feeling you can tell when a painting was done based on the artist's interpretations of Book of Mormon fashion. So it's probably extremely irreverent of me, but I kind of like to look at the videos and giggle about the clothes.
But I also like the videos because of nostalgia. Mom used to check out slideshows from the church library that were a lot like the videos. And of course, I like the stories themselves, too. So, without further ado, here is a link
to the Book of Mormon story about a boy and his friends who repent. (The lesson today was on repentance. It was pretty much, "Here's how to apologize and mean it.")
And, in case anyone's interested, here's a link
to the scripture story video index.
Today I'm thankful for having more time than expected this week, scoring some chocolate croissants at mini-Bread Day, fun little scripture videos, finally getting the iPad Mini set up, and getting to talk to Mom on the phone and spend time with Page.
