The new sticker designs are here! I meant to order them two months ago and got busy with some other projects. I had initially thought they would be the first things I’d add to the new website, but unfortunately, that upgrade hasn’t worked out. It’s pretty much making me crazy.
I am very excited about the Primary Assignment Stickers. You write on them with a Sharpie and then place the sticker on a child’s shirt so that they don’t lose their assignment. I’m hoping it will help parents see the child’s assignment, too, so that they can help the child prepare and everyone will be less likely to forget an assignment. The Caught Being Reverent stickers have gotten an update. I added bubbles and a few other details. I don’t love them, but they are okay. The new Happy Birthday stickers are a test. I will see how they do. They are generic enough that I hope they will sell to all auxiliaries.
Anyway, I’m happy they are in stock and will add them to the website later in the week.
This morning the kids decided to have a lemonade stand out at the road. They did pretty well and pulled down about $17.00 thanks to the generosity of passers-by. A group of two military vehicles drove past and then turned around to come back and buy lemonade. There were 8 of them — the kids were so happy! It was very nice for them to do that, for sure. They are “investing” $5.00 in their business and plan to work again tomorrow. DS was earning money to pay for minutes on his cell phone. I don’t know what DD wanted to earn up for. Probably clothes. :)
I haven’t done much in the past few days with Seminary, except to continue reading the New Testament. It’s made me sad to see all the good stuff I won’t get to teach because I’m out of town at the beginning of Matthew. I’ve got a meeting with the SI guy tomorrow to get my manuals. I’m sure he’ll waste an hour telling me about the new handbook, but I already read it online. It’s better than the old manual in that it has more practical helps for teaching. I will have to read it again when I have a paper copy. I dislike reading on a computer monitor.
