We're doing the "church search" at our new home in our new town in our new state.
One church that we went to also had a youth group that Emily and Katie decided to try. Emily was really too old to go, but she knew Katie would appreciate having her there for moral support.
The youth leader gave the girls a bag with items to welcome them. It included info about the church and youth group as well as a small box of Russell Stover chocolates.
Another kid brazenly walked up to Emily and said, "Can I have your candy?"
"No," Emily responded. "But thank you for asking!"
Emily said later she wished she'd though to say, "No, but you can watch me eat it!"
