Wow – today was quite a day!! HOLY COW!! Church just gets better and better each week - haha. Easter Sunday – isn’t that the day we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior? Isn’t church supposed to be uplifting and perfect? So here’s another doozie of a church story. Easter day started out good (other than the lack of sleep I got – went to bed at 2:30am, up at 5:30am having an allergy sneezing attack, got about another hour of sleep after that), we had a yummy French toast with strawberries and fresh OJ breakfast and then we were off to church. Our church has Sunday School first, and we were a little late – so I just went to my classroom to set up my lesson for the second hour. I teach Young Women’s. Well, when Sunday School ended I went to collect kids for my class. I don’t just teach the teenagers now, it seems I’ve been put in charge of teaching the primary girls also and Tanner, since he doesn’t speak Portuguese. So, we have a very mixed class. We were just about to start when Vanessa (16 year old girl) gets up and storms out and into the Relief Society room (the women’s class) and goes off yelling at her mom. Kaylie and I had no idea what was going on. Then she comes back to our class and sits down, then her mom comes in and grabs her and they leave, yelling and mad. Well, turns out (Rick told us what happened after church) that someone had said something to Vanessa before church that made her really mad and she was freaking out about it. She was mad at her step dad for not “doing something about it”. Anyways, it was another big fiasco at church. Rick got the situation all calmed down eventually and they all came back to church. This family, that we have become friends with, is a very interesting group of people. They seem to find trouble where ever they go.
The day, at church, ended well. We went home, had some lunch, got dinner started (pot roast – very untraditional), did an Easter egg hunt with Kaylie and Tanner, and enjoyed the rest of the day. One funny little side note: Rick received a text from a lady at church about the “incident”. The text was intended for either her mom or sister – I guess that’s who started the problem. She was basically saying that that shouldn’t have taken place at church, and that she was going to start going to a different church building if it didn’t get better. Kinda funny.
Well, off to bed I go (it’s now midnight). I am still trying to back track and get some other posts up.
Feliz Pascoa!!!! (Happy Easter)
