Last weekend (March 4-8) was Youth Week at West Point. I deemed myself a ‘youth’ and attended the Friday night service and the Saturday gym night. The services were really good, and Rev. Larry Lucas did a tremendous job reaching out to the youth and preaching/ministering on their level. Friday night he spoke on self-esteem issues, Sunday morning his message was ‘Your Parents are Aliens’, and Sunday night he spoke about compassion. It as a great weekend.
Now onto the ‘Velcro wall’…that’s what we had at our Saturday night shin-dig, and it was a blast!!! Along with a slide that went from the gym ceiling to the floor and an adrenaline rush thing that would totally give you your cardio workout for a week all within 5 minutes. I didn’t feel so bad when the little skinny girls came out huffing and puffin too. Here’s some pics from the night…Collision ’09 Gym Night.
The March Gang has a new family member…Miley. She’s a teacup Yorkie, and very adorable and friendly.
Things here are going well. I’m trying to make my lists and check them twice for my trip next week…I’m afraid that I’ll forget something or not have the right clothing or what-not. But I’m counting down the days and we have 8 days left…I cannot believe that it’s actually here.
I must get some sleep, or I won’t be worth anything.
