And I'm Spent

Well, I survived Akastasia 2006!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all the prayers. After having a 100 degree temp. the day before we started, I woke up Friday feeling somewhat better. Yesterday was a little rough, but today I felt better again.
The teenagers really seemed to enjoy themselves at the "fun" activities. We had a gameshow and of course, ice skating!
Even more importantly, the Saturday night worship time was AWESOME! The kids sang their lungs out. Imagine my surprise when I stepped out for a few songs and came back to a group of teenagers crowded together with their hands lifted in praise!
Our speaker, Bob Turner did a good job. We joked about whether the teens got more out of his shaving cream illustration or the Bible stuff!
There were, of course, some negatives...but I cannot control all things so I am going to let go of those negatives (and some other people might have to do the same!)
Anyways, I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks of winding down. I know most families are looking forward to Thanksgiving and so am I!

I will try this again . . . Thank you, Franklin, and your team for making Akastasia a great event for all of the kids - including our's! I know Ryan and Megan really enjoyed it and we had a great group of boys at our house. Thank you for ALL the hours you put into this wonderful event! Glad you are feeling better! Grace
