Mom & Dad's Mission Call!

Where to is the question???? We all knew that they wanted to go and when they could go, so the only other question was where. I pulled out an inflatable globe the Sunday before they were to receive their call and had everyone guess. The guesses were as follows....

Grandpa- Sydney, Australia......... Jon- Germany/Austria

Grandma-South Africa .................Tamina- Taiwan

Grant- East of the Mississippi ......Adam (6)- New Mexico

Kelli Ann- Scotland/Britain ........Ari (4)- North Africa

Noah (7)- Canada ......................... Sarah (1)- Egypt

Kim-Mexico ....................................Chris- Norway

Brady-Phillipines/Amazons .........Jen- China/Tibet

Isabel (4)- East Africa .................Nara (5mo)- Tonga

Benjamin (2)- Chile

We used an inflatable globe that had animal pictures representing each region. Most of the kids picked a place that had picture of a cool animal on it, like a zebra or camel. When I first told Adam and Noah that they needed to guess, Adam looked at a map and said, "what is that place called (pointing to Canada)?" I told him it was Canada, and he said, "that place looks like there would be lots of people to teach, I should guess there." I asked him if that was his guess and he said, "no, my guess is New Mexico." Noah promptly guessed Canada. I told the kids that the person who guessed right would get a candy bar. Noah looked at me and told me, "well, we should all get a candybar because we all did a good job guessing!" Because Noah said this, Grandpa made sure that the winner got a king size candy bar and everyone else got a miniature candy bar...cause it was hard work to guess! Dad had us all come over so we would all know at the same time. Grant recorded it, so here it is!
