My life revolves around Seminary and I am fine with that.
As part of our "Love One Another" week, this morning, I prepared an activity that could have been really bad-out-of-control OR so memorable-amazing-awesome that I want to share with other youth leaders and teachers.
Thankfully, the later is the case and I am excited to share.
This is not my original idea.
I adapted it based on a human "Hungry Hungry Hippos" game/activity I saw posted on Facebook.
As much fun as this was, I am confident my students learned something in the process, which is the main goal.
I truly believe in working hard AND playing hard.
My students work hard every day. They are up at 5 am, or earlier, in Seminary class by 6, then off to school for a full day. After school, many of them are on to sports, band, lessons, homework, etc. Every school day, they give their best efforts. Today, we played as hard as they work.
Who knew that Skateboards and Scriptures would be such fun combination.

Ron drove his new car off the lot this evening.
It had 7 miles on it when he left.
It has been a lot of back and forth but the final decision was a Toyota Avalon.
Nice Nice Nice.
Finally purchasing a car was one the important details he needed to check off his list as he begins this exciting new business chapter in his life.
So many blessings, so much to look forward to this year and beyond.

It was just Ron, Katherine, Megan, and me for Christmas Day this year. It was quiet, yet very nice.
We did not wake up until close to 9:30am.
Katherine is patiently waiting for Megan to join her and to go see what Santa brought.
