Slimed

Just a quick post today...I have got soooo much to do today.  Every year I think I am going to have all this time after the kids go back to school but it never turns out that way. :)  Spent the day volunteering yesterday (LOVE THAT).  It was longitude/latitude day at the middle school yesterday.  So I got to spend the morning roaming around the middle school campus doing a scavenger hunt with a group of 7th graders and a GPS.  If I am being honest, I would admit that I wasn't sure if I was going to like volunteering with middle schoolers but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  It was a lot of fun and the kids were great. 

Last night K had her kick off party for youth group.  She has been looking forward to this all summer.  The middle school and high school youth group leaders mixed up over 2000 gallons of slime and filled two swimming pools. The kids then wrestled (girls v. girls, boys v. boys) for a chance to win a gift certificate.  K and her partner were eliminated in the first round but she still had a blast.  I showed up at 8:30 and she was covered in slime and smiling from ear to ear.  It was obviously a huge hit.  There must have been over 100 kids there and every single one of them looked like they were having the time of their life.  So very glad we found this church. 

I have a few things to share with you today.  First, the new issue of Crafts N' Things is now on shelves.  I have to say, this is one of my favorite issues.  So many great projects in there. 


You can find some Halloween treat jars I created. Here's a little sneak.


Have a great week!
