YAY!!

So we set an attendance record! Wahoo!! We had 42 sisters at HPFE (enrichment)! Seriously it was awesome. Everyone I talked to was so excited and said that they'd never had this much fun at HPFE. I met several people that I didn't really know and got to know them (and will remember their names now) and had a great time. It really was minimal planning and minimal set up and clean up.

Since there were so many people it really wasn't possible to meet everyone- but people met just over half. I hadn't thought about people coming in late- but it's what made everything work. The late people offset it just enough so that by the time you got to the person you started with you skipped them and went to the next person- so it was perfect!

Also the girl that talked at the beginning said just what needed to be said about meeting people and putting yourself out there to make friends. It was perfect. I'm thrilled with the results. I was really worried that not too many people would come- I'm glad that we got as many out as we did. YAY!!

YAY, Amber! That's great! What did Sister It All Needs To Be Spiritual say? Anything? Did she go? Hopefully she'll see the need to have fun along with learing gospel things. I'm so happy for you! Way to break into your new calling :)

sweet! We are on THIS side of a ward split... probably happen this fall. Every week in RS at least five sisters introduce themselves (new hmes going up).

This is alot of what is on my mind as an RS teacher.

heh... my WV is kanben... I think he can.

Awesome, Ambre! I'm so glad it went so smoothly. I know how nervous you were to have it all work out. And what a lucky RS to have you as the HFPE leader
