Youth Group in Wisconsin
I had set my alarm for 7am this morning, but something went wrong, so I didn't end up actually waking up till about 7:15 or so. As soon as I got up, I got to work on my leftover homework from the week, because if I didn't get a weekly of at least 15, then I'll get marked as absent, which would be bad. I got in the required attendance, and then finished packing as Grandpa was picking me up to drop me off at Frazee High School at 9:30. When he picked me up, we drove into Vergas to pick up Becca at her house, and then we hopped in the van behind the Frazee High School that Ben was driving. Koby, Chloe, Mya, and Gabby were already in there, and so we drove straight to the Frazee rest stop where we waited for Ron and Karri to come and meet us with the van from Detroit Lakes. When they finally got there, we switched up a little and drove to the DQ in Staples where we had lunch, and then got back in after picking up Matthew. I filled out the survey on the receipt, so I was able to go get a free dilly bar, but sadly I forgot how much I hate cherry. After DQ, we got back in the vans, and kept going, Wisconsin bound. It was about 5 more hours to get there, and we had to stop once in the absolute middle of no where at a tractor supply store to use the bathrooms. We eventually got to Sand Hill Lake chapel in Wisconsin, and made our way inside, except for Mya who raced in to use the bathroom. We went in and looked around, and found out that the people who were going to do worship had canceled for some reason, so Chloe, Cortney, and I somehow ended up doing it. Cortney had brought two guitars, a 6 string and a 12 string, and once I tried the 12 string, I fell in love with it. In the end, it was Chloe and Me leading worship and Cortney taking pictures, after a dinner of tacos salad. There was a little message after we played our set of 5 songs, and then we had a break before playing games until almost 11. We finally were too tired to go on, and we went to where we were staying and fell asleep right away.
June 10, 2019 Boring Monday I didn't really feel like getting up as early this morning, so ended up staying in bed until around 7:15. It was really quite nice to stay in bed, even if I wasn't really sleeping at all. After I got up, I had some water to make sure I was hydrated, and then went outside and finished up some of the painting from Friday on the building across the parking lot, just doing some trim. I got done with that around 8:30, so then I just spent some quality time working on projects that I haven't had time to do lately (gotta love the fact that all my computers sync with my phone so I can work anywhere) and then went and cleaned the apartment. Dad came back from working slightly after I finished cleaning, and so we had lunch together, and then Mom came over from the hospital as well and stayed and talked until around 1. Once they both left, I did some more cleaning, boiled some eggs, cleaned the apartment kitchen again, worked on more stuff on my phone, pra…
June 01, 2019Leaving the Country We got up around 7:30 this morning and got ready to go before catching a shuttle to the airport around 8. When we got to the airport, we first had to go find our bag that they had lost the night before, then go check-in, and then check our bag, all before going through the busy security in Miami. There was a drug dog there, and I got told almost 5 times not to pet it, even though I wasn't even planning on petting it. We got through TSA, and then we went and found our gate. We sat there for only a few minutes before boarding started, and then it was a very easy flight to Roatan Honduras. We landed there and then got off the plane and went through customs. After we got all checked out, they let us officially enter the country where we got tickets for our next flight, and went through security again. After we got through security, we sat in the airport for awhile, where we had lunch (I had nachos) and then boarded a smaller 18 passenger plane for the m…
June 09, 2019 Spanish Church This morning I slept in more than I have any other day. Mom was the only one at the apartment when I woke up (Jana and Tevia have their own studio apartment) as Dad took a 3am - 8 shift in the hospital nursing. Mom has been on call the last two nights which has been rough for her, but she's fine I think. I got up and had a bite to eat, and then we all walked over to the on-campus church for the 8:30 service. It was all in Spanish, so even though we knew some of the songs, everything else was pretty confusing, as while I can pick up little bits, it's not enough to really understand the overall idea. It got over quite early, around 10:30, so we came back to the apartment and hung around. I played guitar for awhile, lost to Josh in a game of Scrabble, and then worked on my journal for awhile, and everyone else went down to the beach in the meantime. The days get to be quite long when you're not doing anything, so we had a family meeting during the…
