Zander, Nolan and Stacia had also bought magic kits at the yen store.
Arielle had given us a LIST of books and Jared and I ordered a bunch...this one has arrived.
But the cake was on track. I made it Thursday afternoon.
A funny thing I will remember from this birthday is that Jared and Arielle came up with a system for the kids while I was gone. The youngers would earn tickets/points for being good. If they made enough, they could have some ice cream cake tonight. I thought I would get a buy...but no....I had a mission....I either had to cry at the microphone or get someone at the retreat to cry. Nut cakes...this stems from Krista's teasing views of women's retreats.
I gave a squeal and high 5 when I "made" someone cry before the first speaking session by sharing a worship song with her. Of course, "I" didn't cause the tears...but I did eat the cake. ::snort::
Yes, I'm back from the retreat. I'll write more about it later. The goals for the rest of the night are sleep, continue making lists and lists of what I think was REALLY good about this retreat and what I think we could possibly tweak in the future. I have to do it while it's fresh in my mind.
Living all of life before the face of God...
