Good morning, it is Thursday.
Yesterday was a fun day for all. Well, I am assuming a bit here. Maybe not all, but for a few, the few that I was lucky enough to hang out with. Timing of the day also worked out perfectly. Olivia and Lauren's mom picked up Hansen (for a movie) and dropped of Lauren around lunch time. I took Lillie and Lauren to the pool to meet up with John, Carol, Mel, Jack and Avery. Carol brought pizza and juice and within the first hour, the sun burned off the clouds and the day became sunny. Yay!
On the Preston front, I'm assuming he is having a great time on the Mission Trip. I'm still a bit anxious about the fact that the kids were not allowed to bring their cellphones. We do get one super short e-mail update every night from the youth group leader, but really, it gives us zero idea of how it is really going. This is last night's update:
Everyone says "hi, we are having tones of fun, the van rocks!" Your teens are great.
That is it. Tones of fun? The van rocks? Well, there is some back story to the van and I can only assume that some parents are freaking out about the whole group being stuffed in it. Not one bite my tongue, I have been surprisingly OK with it. And knowing the kids that are on the trip, they are having a great time! Tomorrow the group is scheduled to be home, just in time for a soccer tournament.
See you tomorrow.
