Why Farmer Freitas' Wife?
Well, my husband loves to garden and my sister likes to call him Farmer Freitas....so you know what that makes me.
We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.
Marley likes to "dress" for dinner when the missionaries come.
We try to have them a least once a transfer (every 6 weeks), but probably should try to feed them more often because I think they only get 1 maybe 2 dinner appointments a week...if they're lucky (blessed).
Elder Mann has been here for 4 1/2 months and Elder Snow has been here for 6 weeks (one transfer!).
They just found out last night that Elder Snow is getting transferred!
We just got him!!!!
They also told us that since the announcement of the younger age requirements to serve a full-time mission, the Michigan Lansing Mission will be getting 146 more missionaries and opening 43 new areas in the next few months!
The majority will probably be SISTERS!!!!
That sounds like A LOT of work for President Hess and the Mission office Missionaries.
But, SO exciting!
I got to go to a teaching appointment with the Elders TODAY!
I dropped Nathan and the girls off at the Library.
I met the Elders and another Brother from our branch.
It was so nice to be there!
I love to watch the Gospel change people's lives!
I went and joined my little tribe at the Lib.
We love the library!
This is Ms. Lehman!
She is the best children's librarian.
They had already picked out all their books.
I hurried and grabbed some books regarding "How to teach your child to read."
I really think Marley could learn to read.
She KNOWS the alphabet and all their sounds.
I'm gonna read the books.
If she's not into learning to read yet....or learning from me....then no harm done.
This is actually also a test to see how open she is to having me as a teacher.
Thinking about MAYBE homeschooling her.
Maybe I'll blog about that another day.
We headed over to Family Video because they sent us some pretty sweet coupons!
We rented Dance Party 4 and Zumba 2 for our Wii.
I think I want one of those for Christmas so we rented them to see which one we liked better.
