We had our last Visiting Teaching social this morning - had to switch it to my house, because of illness at the original location. We had several sisters come, along with their children (that was the reason for a daytime meeting.) We were able to do some more VT interviews, the sisters had a great time chatting and getting to know each other, and the children played really well and seemed to have fun. It was like a play date for them. Unfortunately, it had rained during the night and the backyard was too wet to let them play out, but all went well anyway. Now we just have the rest of the list to call and do interviews individually.
That ended up taking up a good part of my day, since we set it up as kind of an openhouse arrangement from 10:30 - 1:00. The last person didn't leave until closer to 1:30. By the time I straightened up and did some of the other things that needed done, my day was pretty much finished!
It feels good to finish something and we were glad to have the socials finished. They have turned out well, overall, although we would like to have even more attend. We may try doing it the same way next year, with a few tweaks.
