The women in our ward played Service Bingo at the park tonight. There were enough treats at the activity to put a few cavities in any sweet tooth. (Hopefully, we haven't ruined Heather's good luck!)
Each woman donated a service into a bucket. We then set up our game by filling our bingo cards with the names of sisters who satisfied the category in each block of the grid. (We had to get a little creative on a few categories.) The MC then called the names of attendees by drawing their names out of a name bucket, and we marked the names on our cards using Skittles (mostly orange, green, and yellow ones since I had moved through the candy piles on the table like a red-and-purple-Skittles anteater). As each sister got bingo on her card, she dipped her hand into the service bucket and fished out one of the services donated for a prize. I donated the choice of a "Welcome Mat" cleaning (cleaning the front door, porch, steps, window, etc.) or Window Washing. I won a housecleaning by a new sister in the ward who is one month away from giving birth! I may have her re-shingle the roof while she's at it.
Aaaah, it was very refreshing to (1) be outside and (2) chat with other women. I lengthened the loveliness of the day by staying late with a handful of others procrastinating their return home.
Well... I am tired now and am having trouble forming sentences, so that's all I have to say about tonight's activity... except I would have loved taking more photos, but I was too busy eating the red and purple Skittles off the table.
