This year happened to be the largest and thanks to a wonderful member of our church, we were able to take a school bus for less than it would cost to rent vans. The bus ride was a blast!! Everyone was full of energy on the way down and it was fun to see them talking and playing and getting to know one another - especially since we had four kids and an adult from another church. They all got along GREAT!
Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous day. The sun came out and the temperatures jumped up about 20 degrees. We started with worship in Echo Hollow with Leeland and Kutless as well as a talk by Joe White. I was reminded that God can speak directly to our hearts even when we least expect it!
On the way home we made a quick stop at the Osceola Cheese store because Jenn said about 7 miles earlier, "Carla, I'm going to have to pee in about 7 miles." They certainly do make me laugh! We took a few minutes to play "The horse ran around with his foot on the ground" in the parking lot and then reloaded the bus for the final leg of our journey. It was, once again, an exceptional weekend and I am very blessed to be able to work with some pretty amazing young people!
