Madi has had a difficult few days. On Wednesday night they were making gingerbread houses at AWANA. Apparently she had fun, but by the time I got there her house had caved in. On the way home we were dropping off two of her friends and on our way she realized she didn't have her AWANA book and bag. After I asked, she also realized she didn't pay the teacher the money she owed for the now smooshed gingerbread house. We were able to finally get back into the church to find the lost items (and pay), but it was a stressful night (mostly because her mother wasn't nearly as patient as she should be!). Then today running into the park, Madi bumped into a friend and fell HARD on the pavement. She scraped her arm in three places and skinned her knee even with jeans on. She wasn't in a very cheerful mood after that. Tonight when we picked her up at Theatre (they had auditions to day for Schoolhouse Rock) she was crying because her MP3 player's screen was cracked. She doesn't know how it happened. Thankfully the music still plays, but it was disappointing anyway. Say a little prayer for Madi, it is hard to be nine!
Here's a picture of her (before falling) with the Turkish Delight we made yesterday. Incidently, did you know "Turks" have been making Turkish Delight for over 500 years?
