So what do you think this might be? While you are trying to decide, I'll give you an update on the famine my sons are participating in!
On Wednesday night the youth group was split between boys and girls. Both teams were supposed to build a cardboard house/village. The team that won...based on specific criteria...were allowed to bring 2 luxury items to church last night. The boys team won, so one of my sons took an extra T shirt and a sleeping bag. I don't know what the other one took.
Six-thirty sharp, last evening, these famished kids converged at the youth center to "support each other" as their stomachs growled in unison, and then they were required to "sleep" in their separate cardboard villages outside last night. Boys village...girls village! I think it would be so fun to be a mosquito buzzing around listening to their conversations. I could land right on their arm or face for that matter for a bird's eye...excuse me, a mosquito's eye view of all that is being done and said...but they'd better not slap at me! The youth pastor and parent leaders were participating too...as you see, we weren't parent leaders in this situation...hence the need for mosquito antics!
The teens all took this very seriously. There were several other youth groups doing this also. It will be interesting to see what life long lessons they learned from it. I know they have.
Well, I better be bbbbbuuuuuuuuuuzzzzzzzzzzzing around and figure out what yummy thing to fix for them to eat when they come charging through the door. Any ideas? Oh and what about that picture up above? It was a fun one to take!
P.S. Did I say yesterday that I'd feed them an elephant?
