On Sunday, October 9th
, 6 YP
and myself made the trek to Cornwall to enjoy an evening of fellowship, food, and faith building at another of our Classis
wide youth services. Though the numbers were few (due to the Classis
Fall Retreat just happening the week before), the fellowship was good.
Our van of 7 sure was interesting. Three boy math geeks and three hyper females. As the km's
passed, we all had fun listening to Sam and Shawn recite from memory movies they had seen. I don't know how they do that. : )
The girls kept fighting amongst each other and complaining about not enough room in the back seat. They sang songs and talked about the movies that were being recited. Not a quiet moment during the ride up to Cornwall, or home again : )
Once we arrived we were shuffled to a school gym next door and enjoyed a time to play some volleyball, and other games. I taught Hannah, Rozzy
and Megan how to play Sequence. They caught on pretty quick, but Rozzy
, remember to pick up a card after your turn is up, eh!!
The girls played some Twister, and then, somehow roped me and Shawn into this as well. I think I pulled a muscle in my back doing that.
After the games, we enjoyed a great meal of spaghetti
. We ate and ate. GREAT food. Then we enjoyed a time of praise and worship in the youth service. Cornwall
has some talented musicians, for sure. Our group decided we needed to add some life to the service, so we clapped when we felt like it, and even used some rhythm
stuff. It was quite fun. Pastor Herb reminded us that being a Christian doesn't mean you have to grumble about what you can't do, but celebrate what you can and are doing in the world.
Then it was back in the van for our return trip home. More movie recitals and lots of fun. Below are some pics of the evening. Enjoy.
Here Sam is ready for anything when it comes to Volleyball.
The girls enjoyed a couple of games of twister. You sure need to flexible in this game.
Shawn and I proved we are not. OUCH! Hey, I just noticed I'm balding too.... : (
provided us with GREAT food. Here Hannah takes a Gerbil's
We gathered around the table and enjoyed some food and fellowship together. Megan seems to like smiling for the Camera.
Here, however, she has that deer in the headlight look. Notice how she dissects her ice cream bar. She just can't eat it like others do. : )
That's the thanks I get for taking her picture.
, well, she doesn't like me taking her picture because she says I always take bad pictures of her. Eye's closed, etc. Hmmmm
, maybe she's right!!
, but this is a much better one, eh Rozzy
