Dear Mother & Daddy,
"Things are finally quiet. Both Bob & Ann have friends staying all night with them so they have been having a time.
We're glad you liked the perfume. Use it and don't try to save it because it will evaporate no matter how tight the lid seems.
Easter was a miserable day. It was cold and rainy but that didn't stop people from dressing up and going to church. We went at 7:00. There was a short worship service & then the baptizing. We ate breakfast at church and then came home for a few minutes before Sunday School. I had to keep the nursery during church but the best went to church. B said he felt like he'd been in church all day and it did seem long.
Toni & Watty came for a while in the afternoon. They hadn't seen the upstairs since we moved into it. They are still working on their place--finishing woodwork and such.
We went to a little party at Larsen's one night for her sister & husband. Maybe I told you they were missionaries. He is an Episcopalian priest--they have lived in the Philippines for years.
There has been something extra most every day this week. I went to a meeting in Ann's room yesterday morning, to P.T.A. and then to Quill Club last night. B had a dinner meeting last night too. Some of the school people met with the Normal Town Council to talk about the school's needs & problems & future plans.
Sorensens are coming down tomorrow night for awhile. We have all been so busy that they haven't been here in a long time. He is going to Russia next summer & is really excited about it. It will be a month's trip with other professors & Edna will not go. She'll meet him later in Europe & they plan to stay in Italy for awhile.
Some people want to borrow some slides on Japan so I'd better go look them up."
Love to all,
NOTE: The slide viewer was purchased in Japan and used for decades in selecting specific slides to use for various presentations. Using it was a slow process, but it provided an excellent view (though small) of individual slides.
