As kids Jennifer and Jacob could never figure out why they didn't get to celebrate their birthdays with everybody else!
I am going to hit this week really fast. It is getting really hard to put anything in here that is different or interesting. So, let the reader beware.
NOTE: This week's post is being written by both of us. So read with understanding.
Sunday last: We decided not to fight the crowds at the Stake Center for General Conference so we stayed home and watched it on the internet. Sister Hoopes has had a bad cold which is still continuing today. Her coughing was bad last week so that was part of the decision. She still has the cough today.
Monday: We got a call on Sunday night from the Assistants, wondering if we would take a Sister Missionary to the airport for a flight to Manila. She is going to the Reno Nevada Mission and finally got her visa.
Tuesday: Again to Pasacao for piano lessons. I only had 1 student there this week. This was Lian's last piano lesson as she is returning home to somewhere by Manila for the summer. She was going to take the keyboard that they had been sharing so she could practice a recital piece and return at the end of May. She has been doing very well and has been playing for relief society . She is excited to learn and claps her hands every time she learns something new. She is committed to learning and teaching piano to others.

Friday: At the end of a quiet day, we had a truck show up with supplies for the office. It was exciting because it contained the 30 new Keyboards for Sister Hoopes along with some piano books.
Saturday: We left at 1:00 pm for Goa with the Watsons. They had a Family History event that the Missionaries had put together. Sister Hoopes delivered 5 keyboards to Sister Kathleen Bonon in Goa for the students she will be teaching.

We just finished talking to our son James and was wishing him happy Birthday as he traveled into work at 4:00 AM Utah time. As he arrived at work, our son Jason was there, so we got to say Hello, to two sons at one time. A great day. We are so proud of their great work ethic.
Until next week.
