January 24 - Saturday Evening

With no scheduled obligations, today has been devoted to some household duties. I did make a batch of cookies. Monday is the Chinese New Year and since we have a number of Chinese students who reside in the Student Living Center, I thought it might be nice to give them a bag of cookies and a card wishing them a happy new year. About 4:15 p.m. we got in the car and drove around our area a few miles in each direction to get better acquainted with our surroundings.

Erin requested a picture of our "snowy woods" after John's blog telling of our walk in the woods--so here it is.

Last night we dressed up and attended a dance sponsored by the students in our Institute. Other young single adults came from a stake east of us close to Detroit and west of us at Grand Rapids. We danced a couple of times, but we really don't know how to dance to the music which appeals to this generation--no waltz, no swing, no cha cha, and no fox trots. We're pretty old--we would do better going to a dance with our grandparents than our grandchildren.

Thanks to you who are responding to our blogs. Email us if you don't know how to access comments. We love hearing from you.

We are glad that we can get updates on your blog and excited for you that you get to serve again! YOu're up closer to where I grew up. I don't envy you for having such cold weather! Did you know that you can have your blog printed out in a book? Then you'll have a mission journal quick and easy! We love you!

That is a great picture of the woods! :) It does make me want to see it. Some kids in my generation know the foxtrot, cha cha, etc., and I bet they wish it had been played at the dance, too! It sure was nice of you to remember the Chinese New Year. :)
