whirlwind, anyone?

I'm Feeling: the calm before the proverbial storm!
Background Noise: I Heard It Through the Grapevine by Marvin Gaye

Busy week/weekend - here is a quick run-down:
Cedar Point! We dodged the rain almost the entire time (thanks, God!) and rode the Raptor twice, the Magnum, the Millenium Force twice, a couple of really wet water rides, the Gemini, the Twister, Distaster Transport twice, and Top Thrill Dragster (pictured). I have never screamed in such genuine fear as I did on that ride. It was fun, but it's more than mildly terrifying to go from 0 to 120 mph in 4 seconds, and be shot up 400 feet in the air, only to plummet back down. The plummeting is my favorite part, by far.

Job interview (no news yet, I'll keep you posted)
Sleepover with 5 middle school friends - Nat, Courtney, Huntar, Maria and Christy. We had chocolate fondue, set up a bracket for Connect Four (look out - we know how to party!) and ate cookie dough while watching Harry Potter. My life is pretty good.

Cleaned up from the tornado that swept my house the night before
Dinner and church with Chris and Mark
Dairy Hill for ice cream (yum!)
watched a movie

spent our life savings at Meijer (we should buy stock)
planted flowers/plants and pulled weeds
cleaned the house so as to impress our new friends Dan and Suzanne
had dinner with Dan and Suzanne - again, lots of fun, laughing, getting to know each other a little better. They're fun, and their kid is fun. What else could you ask for?

Catching up on emails/voicemails, seeing some students before I leave for...

WyldLife camp at TimberWolf Lake! Seriously fun - but I need to pack and get my act together before tomorrow morning!!

Hope your emotions are on the up swing. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Man, I miss Dairy Hill. Although, not the crabby lady that worked there. I'm positive she didn't like me. Even when someone else waited on me, she would hover and be crabby at me.

Enough about me... hope your week at camp goes well!
