Firetrucks and cream pie

So i know you're thinking, what in the world do cream pies and firetrucks have in common. Well, last night was our water night for NBT. They brought in a fire truck to wet us all down for games and other activities. The night was reversed, the preaching was first and the games were last, but you don't really want 71 soaking wet teens sitting and getting pneumonia...So maybe you're still wondering where a cream pie ties into all this...well they had a skit called "extreme spelling." They picked two teens for a spelling bee, and any time they spelled a word wrong, they got covered in that item. Of course, it was all planned, so even if Nick spelled his word right, Rachel still got to cover him in whatever the item was. Well, it started out with chocolate syrup, then came the eggs, followed by cream pie and a 2-liter of Coke. Well, the skit was pretty funny, but everyone obviously forgot about it when the firetruck came because no one cleaned it up. So 4 hours later as everyone was going home, that became my job. Good thing i was still in my wet clothes because the garden hose doesn't have a great seal and water pretty much just goes everywhere. Anyway, it is near impossible to clean dried cream pie and eggs of a concrete floor, especially with a demented garden hose, but i finally got it done.

So by the time i got home, i had pretty much been in wet clothes for about 4 1/2 to 5 hours, and i was chilled to the bone. i couldn't get warm for anything. i tried changing into some super comfy, warm clothes and covering up with a nice fleece blanket, but it wasn't enough. Eventually, i just gave up and went to sleep. I have been exhausted this week and i slept really well. Actually i slept in this morning...not good, by the time i got up i had 15 minutes to shower and get ready...needless to say it wasn't a good hair day.

My second grade class is awesome. They all are so excited to tell us when they do their study or say their memory verses. I actually have one 2nd grader that has said 30 verses so far this week. Well, i have to go get ready to go back for our Destination Unknown. This is always the best night, but i don't think we are going to have a bonfire this year, which will be kind of sad. Well, after this week i have to start work, so pray for me.

Ok so obviously my fool proof way of posting pics didn't work
