CA Recap from Last Weekend

Below is a photo recap of our CA program last weekend. It was a wonderful weekend and we had fun visiting with our friends. The program was very upbuilding with excellent reminders. The speakers all did a fabulous job. Our DO announced that they had been called away from their assignment and would be receiving a new assignment in the Education arena. He will be missed.

Here is Henry and Nana posing before the program on Saturday.

And here is Henry posing with Papa.

I snapped this because they both seemed to be enjoying themselves so much. Turns out Henry had talked Nana into telling him the story "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"

I take this picture every year as a point of comparison.

Here is the same picture taken during his first CA. It was March 2005.

Henry had a friend sit with him for the first time. Then he sat with another friend for the afternoon session.

Henry enjoyed volunteering to help with our cleaning assignment during this assembly as well. Both days, we were assigned to help clean the dining room after lunch. Henry loved being in charge of the squirt bottle and several of the friends had him spraying the tables. He was also most excellent at putting the right number of chairs back at each of the tables after the vacuuming was complete. At the end of the program on Sunday, we were assigned to clean the water fountains. Henry really enjoyed this assignment, as well, as it also involved being in charge of the squirt bottle.

We also remembered to bring his wallet on Sunday and he extracted a sum of his choosing to place in the contribution box. I was quite proud of his willingness and generosity.

And each night after the program, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner with our friends. It was a perfect weekend, all the way around.

  2. What a little man he's turning into. Sweet! Keep up the good work, mom. It's wonderful when children are so willing and eager to help out. Train 'em while they're willing, is my motto. My two girls love to help, too, around the house, as well as, in the KH and AH. I'm sooo jealous of your warm weather! It's cold up here in WA. :)

  3. Our CO, too, with tears in his eyes and a catch in his throat made a similar announcement. He is going to replace a DO.
