It's time for the latest Awkward and Awesome!!! I love writing these.
I'm supposed to be doing school right now, but if I don't write this right now, I'll never do it:) Instead of the A & A post, I'm just going to write about our life.
Usually on school days we have family devotions at 7:30am and then start school around 8. On Mondays and Wednesdays, my two older sisters and I take College Algebra at Zane State. On Tuesdays, Autumn, Melody, Timothy, and Serenity take piano lessons. Also on Wednesday the boys have speech therapy.
This Wednesday Autumn and I were talking to a lady in the therapy center place. She had had surgery on her shoulder. We didn't have a chance to invite her to church personally because the therapist called her back, so Autumn wrote her a letter and gave it to the receptionist. We invited her to our Ladies' Group and the services...so pray that she and her husband come!!
Our family has had the flu that has been going around. Also known as the Plague. I think I was the first one to get it and it sort of felt like I had vertigo. Not that I've ever had vertigo, but what I imagine it to be.
Well, I wish I could find a few random pictures, but I can't. I shall remember to take some next week! Got to go finish my Algebra homework!! Happy Saturday:)
Today I'm supposed to write an Awkward and Awesome post, but really, its just been awesome!
Let me just say, God works miracles!!! Some really good friends of ours graciously paid for all four of us to go. Not only that, but they had enough room to take us along with their youth group! So yeah, we had an amazing time!
The very first game we played was when everyone had to take our shoe/sock off and run across the field, around a tree, and back again. It was just a little cold.
We also played a game where you spit bb's through a straw into a bucket (I think Bulls won that!!!!!).
Another really fun game was the banana game where you had to shuuush down the chairs (we really only had to scoot down the line, but it's cooler to say shuush down them). After the first time we did it, Mr. Aaron smashed the bananas on the cement floor. And then we had to do it all over again with them.
We also played two types of dodge ball (one inside, the other outside), floor hockey, a pillow fight, round robin, and my absolute favorite, spoke tackle.
The reason I like it do well is in spoke tackle you can body check, take down, clothesline, tackle, trip, push, shove, flag tackle, slide tackle, arm drag, hip toss, anything goes!! (Except for hair pulling or bone breaking)
Mr Glenn preached (we had five chapel services in the 1 1/2 days we were there).
There were a lot of great messages, but my favorite was the last one in John 15:5 where it talks about the vine and the branches and that without God, we can do nothing. And that includes keep the decisions we made at camp.
We are so thankful that God allowed all of us to go!
Just popped in to say Happy New Year's (a day late)!!
I'm so thankful for everything God has done for our family this past year. Especially because we got to go to camp!!!! Autumn, Melody, Timothy, and I were able to go to Wildwood Christian Winter Teen Retreat. We had the most amazing time (and are a little sore;))
Anyway, more on that later! Happy New Years again!!
