Is the Bowling Alley more Expensive than a Theater?
Ben woke us up sometime this morning, but I just went back to sleep until I actually had to get up. I was a little sore from sleeping on the floor, but that's a small price to pay for nothing. We got ready to go, and then went back to the church from Yo Handyman Dave's house. We got there around 9 AM, and breakfast was like a cheese egg hotdish thing and sausages or something. After breakfast, Chloe, Kylie, and I practiced for the morning worship, and then we did it, with me completely going blank on the chords for the last song, "Great Are You, Lord." Then Dave tried to trick us into taking a $20 bill from a giant rat trap, that was very real. Then he switched it out for a fake one and stuff so it was fine. After the morning session, which was Dave talking about stuff, we had some games before lunch, which involved blindfolding people and having them try to guess who someone was by only their voice. Sometime during breakfast, a bunch of other people came too, including Nate, and so that was really awesome. We had lunch, which was like this amazing tatertot hotdish thing, and then we just messed around upstairs until it was time to go into town to the bowling alley. Ron was driving one of the white trucks, and Ben was driving the other, and there was a little bit of a NASCAR mentality going on there. We got to the bowling alley, and we got into our shoes and filled up 6 of the 8 lanes. We played and played and played, with me winning our lane's game with a score of 99. Then we went and got a pitcher of Pepsi ($6.50) and a basket of fried stuffed peppers ($7.50) which Koby, Hali, Cortney, and I ate while we watched everyone else bowl. We went back to the church after a few hours of bowling, and we played some rather violent games until dinner. Right after dinner, Chloe, Cortney, and I, went upstairs to practice for the evening worship with this kid named Josh who played a bongo drum. We did Days of Elijah, Oceans, O Come to the Altar, and Reckless Love for the evening set, and then Ben gave the first part of the evening session, with Dave doing a big lightshow on the Easter story for the rest. Then after that, they did some songs played on the computer, and then we played more games. We tried playing Jailbreak outside, but it was really cold and Matthew tried throwing me into a snowdrift. Around 10:30 or so, Tristan, Danny, Chloe, Josh, and I, ended up singing in front of everyone else and then an indoor baseball game started and we finally headed back to our houses at 11:30 pm. After showers for mostly everyone, we finally got to bed around 1 am.
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…
