We hosted Empty Nesters family home evening tonight, so most of my day was cleaning the house and getting ready for that. I had to actually do all the cleaning that got ignored on Saturday when the kids came over at the last minute. Got it done, though. I also made a cake for refreshments and got the popcorn maker moved into the dining room, so we could also have popcorn.
In between all that, I worked on family history. I am trying to help one of my class members who is from South Africa and has almost nothing so far. I spent a good while just trying to find out where to look for things, since Family Search and Ancestry are not producing any information. I found a clue and am exploring that now. This may take a while, but it sure is fun!
We had a nice turnout this evening, considering that it is summer and so many are away on vacations. We had to plan the activity, so we made it really simple! I found a quote from Audrey Hepburn about laughter. I shared a little about the benefits of laughter and then we just shared funny stories. It was a fun evening.
