YW self-reliance derby

I knew last night's mutual activity would be particularly entertaining, so I made sure to take my camera. The Beehives and Mia Maids combined for a self-reliance derby. The course had five stations, with five different tasks: fold a fitted sheet, write a check, look through magazine pictures and pick out three items that would make a balanced meal, wash a dish and put a diaper on a baby (doll). The girls divided into teams. You had to tie an apron on, complete the course, and run back to give the apron to the next girl.

After the first time through the course, we actually did a little instructional on HOW to fold a sheet, write a check, plan a balanced meal and put on a diaper. Then we did round two: The girls had to do the course again, except holding the baby doll the whole time. If you dropped the baby, you had to start over.

It was really funny to watch and I think the girls sure enjoyed it. And I learned how to fold a fitted sheet. Boo-yah.
