Busy but Really Fun Weekend!

Well, this week has been very busy. From helping a family mourn at the beginning of the week, to watching funny movies last night! On Friday and Saturday I went to the Ladies Retreat at church. What a blessing it was to hear Donna Root speak to my heart! Richard stayed at home by himself and caught up on much needed rest and Ashlyn and Carter got to go to Nana and Papa's to stay the night! Papa is redoing the bathroom and promised them they could help him paint. Well....the kids fell asleep on the way home and were put straight to bed(at 7 pm-what were they thinking?) and of course they woke up at 2 am wanting to paint!! yea for Grandparents!! Yesterday afternoon we took the kids to a corn maze with our small group. Now for those of you who don't know what that is, let me explain how they do things here in the midwest for Halloween. They take a large cornfield and create a maze. (The one we went to is the Great Godfrey maze which the theme this year was the Wizard of Oz) You can check it out at Inside the maze are numbered markers and you have to answer a question correctly to get a clue as to which direction to turn! The questions were really hard! For example. Question #1 was : How many times is the word corn mentioned in the Bible? Now let me tell you that the questions got harder as you got closer to the exit!! Our kids loved it and they also had a pit of corn kernels that they got to play in. Just a footnote that at night it turns into a haunted maze! You won't find me in there after dark! Can you say Malachi? Anyway, that was our fun weekend! And for those of you who read this who haven't signed in( and you know who you are-all of you!!) You can comment you know!
