Ken’s Home!

After two (long, long) weeks, Kenneth is finally home from Peru! Woohoo! :)

He was in Peru for school (Global Engineering Outreach), and he brought home some neat souvenirs. Here’s two of them that we have put up in our apartment. He did really good.

I could not get a good picture of this next one because of the glass reflection, but believe me when I say the painting is cool! It’s not painted on paper. It’s actually painted on a velvet-like fabric. It’s a picture of Machu Piccu.

Now tilt your head to the right. Do you see the Peruvian face in the mountains? Obviously it is exaggerated in the painting, but apparently Machu Piccu really looks like a Peruvian face.

Also, two completely unrelated good things:

1. Kenneth found his wedding ring! It was lost for probably 1.5-2 months. He found it in the weirdest spot. He was playing with something (clay?) at work and dropped it under the desk. He went to get it and found his wedding ring! Hooray!

2. Ken talked me into playing on the co-ed intramural ultimate frisbee team, and we played our first game on Tuesday, and we won! It was kind of close. 10-8.

Talk

A couple of weeks ago a boy knocked on our door. He handed me a letter. I was so excited that I didn’t even think twice about why a letter would be hand delivered.

I thanked him and shut the door. I eagerly opened my letter and saw “from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” at the top.

Yep, you guessed it. It was a letter asking me to speak in sacrament meeting. To make matters worse, I found out that Kenneth recommended to the bishopric that I speak in church.

Let’s just say that the silly string bottle that I have been hiding was broken out. It went about the same way as last time (Kenneth stealing the bottle. Those darn boys always being stronger) except for it was taken outside as well. I don’t think I’ve run that fast in a long time. I’m pretty sure our neighbors think we are crazy.
