Anyways, there are these polynesian cousins this year that we've been following and I've really liked and rooted for from the beginning. Someone in my Bunco group early on said 1 of them was in someone's ward in Mesa that she knew. There were also hints here and there that I picked up on that they were Mormon and was pretty sure they were both from AZ.
1 of the cousins-Sione got booted last night and as we were watching the homecoming part at the end of the show I recognized his mom but initially couldn't place where from and then I saw in the background our home teacher. I finally figured out that his mom used to be in our ward and I had helped her with a project at an enrichment Super Saturday. She had brought me a little bag she had made for Matthew the next day at church as a thank you.
I asked Jordan to call our home teacher and ask what was up. He is Sione's brother-in-law (Sione is married to his sister) and told us that Sione lives in a ward in our town. Also, that episode was taped in February so not that long ago. We're so curious to see if we run into them here. Pretty cool-huh!
