Elder Knight says goodby to us and the Institute Center for Young Adults, maybe for the last time. We sure hate to see him go! We grow to love these missionaries so much!

But Peter and Ann were home alone on Friday, and prepared a lovely dinner for us. We had a great visit . . .
. . .and a walk to view the wonderful countryside in which they live. A peaceful evening!
Saturday morning we took Sister Susan, left, and Sister Tina, the two Catholic nuns who live next door to us, into the countryside. They don't have a car and seldom get out of the city/apartment. This is Wollensee and it was wonderful on this sunny Saturday morning. They seemed thrilled to be out!
Later that day, Elder Grassli and I went again into the countryside on our own and walked in the forest. The floor of the forest is carpeted everywhere with miniature anemones. It's amazing! The photos don't do it justice.
The tablecloths we made months ago from the fabric we had to cut off our apartment curtains to make them fit the windows. The extra place setting is for a less-active who didn't show.
The already-cooked-and-dyed Easter eggs are from the local market. They have been selling them since Christmas! They are really gorgeous saturated colors. I don't know what they do to preserve them.
But we had our traditional scripture readings with lamb, garden salad, water, eggs, bread, sweets, and even the napkin in red water/clorox. Anna did salad, the sisters brought the vegetables, and Matthew made his famous pear tart. We filled in with the lamb, potatoes and gravy, and homemade rolls.
