Nothing much else happened during the week. I got to go volunteer in Corbin's class on Friday and that was fun. I'm hoping to be able to go in for a bit every Friday. When Corbin came home from school he said to me, "I can't believe you were my teacher." It was funny and cute.
I decided to go to my parents house this weekend. My friend from high school who lives in Virginia was visiting her parents this weekend and I haven't seen her for years. She just had her first baby. I also wanted to go to Arco one last time before the baby comes. I got Trisha and her kids and Kelsey and Justin to come also. It's more fun when more families come. I especially love it when Trisha can come because I don't ever get to see her and our kids have a great time playing together.
My parents are temple workers on Friday nights and I thought for sure they would get a sub so I didn't even ask if they would be there. I was surprised to come home to an empty house with a note. It's pretty hard and annoying to trade temple shifts with people. They were able to sneak away a little early and got home at 10:00 that night. My mom still had some dinner in the oven waiting for us. Trisha arrived 30 minutes after we did and we just talked all night while our kids played. Kelsey and Justin arrived around 8:00. When my parents got home we talked to them for a few more hours and went to bed.
On Saturday we pretty much hung around all day. I went to my friends house for about an hour and caught up with her. The highlight of the day was when we went on a hayride to feed the cows. My mom drives the tractor while my dad pulls the hay bales off the wagon to feed to the cows. Watching my mom drive the tractor is a kick. She has never had to help out on the farm before but since all the sons have finally left the nest my mom is the new help. Hilarious!
That night we watched the Relief Society Broadcast and then we watched The Others. Scott and I were the only ones that had seen that movie. I couldn't believe that. I'm not sure if anyone liked it but I think it's a great scary movie. After that Kelsey, Justin, and Scott and I watched World War Z. I slept through most of it so I didn't really watch it, I was complaining to Scott that the movie didn't make sense and he said I had no grounds to say a movie I slept through didn't make sense. He has a point. I was tired man!
Today we went to church then had my most favorite meal and packed up and headed home. All of our kids slept almost the whole way home. It was heavenly!
