We took the 3 young women next door to "Cinderella" for FHE. They don't have a mom, and so we had a fun girls night out. They had never been in the movie theatre before, even though they've lived their whole lives here. So it was fun to do something so extravagant with them.
Teaching English to the Chinese sister who knows none is challenging, but rewarding. She is finally starting to open up a little, and we are laughing together a lot these days, while trying to figure a lot out with sign language!
Lastly, here are some views of my "homes" where I most hang out these days.
Our apartment home in Alhambra. It's quite nice, safe, and has several ward members and missionaries who live in the same complex.
And then we go to the "home" where I live during the daytime hours. The Employment Resource Center, or ERS, as we fondly refer to it.
Even my very own office. Just what I always wanted!!
The very best part about my office is the sweetest of decor adorning mywall directly above the computer where I can look at my sweeties at any given time during the day!
And lastly, the church where we hang out almost every day of the week for something or other . It's an old church, built in the 40's or some such time. Its interior reflects the character of the cultures it serves, including an interior courtyard, that is completely open in the roof to outside. That type of architecture could only serve a California population. It wouldn't do very well under Utah snow!
All my newest Home, sweet homes!
