Enrichment Night

So.... I'm freaking out a little. I'm being divided between two callings right now, Mia Maids and Enrichment, and since they are both pretty new callings, everyone's trying to get the "new girl" to share her talents with everyone! Didn't realize I had talents until now! So, last week I taught my mia maids all about hair and how to french braid and just a basic formal updo for when they start dating. No big deal, except I was given two days notice to plan! Also, I was informed I was volunteered to teach the Mia Maids how to sew pajama pants with two days notice, but luckily that activity was moved so I have a month to prep. And tomorrow I'm teaching enrichment night! Yeah, just me! At first it started as teaching a craft/skill at a Super Saturday-no big deal, I've done that before. Just provide the materials and give basic instructions. Then, when they decided to go more "spiritual" with that Saturday activity, rather then cancelling my class like everyone else, she said will you just teach it for an enrichment night? ALL BY MYSELF? Freak! Not being able to say no, I asked exactly what she wanted me to teach. She's been my visiting teacher, so I thought she might say "how to build a frame" or maybe "photography" but no, she wants me to teach how to REFINISH FURNITURE! Seriously? I know hardly anything, but now I have to teach a 90 minute class about it! So, for any of you out there who have taught enrichment night before, just tell me the time goes by so fast and it will be great :) Sorry for the ultra long blog. You know me, I tell long stories with more then enough details :)

Hayley, I think Eric & Britt have a friend that refinishes furniture! You should call them!! That is how they learned to paint alot of their furniture and wall hangings black. We should do a "power trip" south soon and carpool. We'll swing by and pick you guys up! Last time they were here, it was for one day. It was fast & furious. Going to see them is waayyy less hectic and it is so nice to get away from all this hustle and bustle. Let's do it...soon!! Good luck at enrichment! :) You'll do GREAT!

Hey Hay! I was the enrichment leader down here for a while before Colton was born. You will do so great! Don't worry about totally sticking to "refinishing furniture" if you are concerned about it. Just do the basics you know and add in fun stuff like frame work and stuff. People will love it! Missing you guys! We are coming up Valentine's weekend do you guys want to get together? We want to redeem ourselves from last time!
