Social Weekend

Whew, what a weekend!  Carolyn had Friday off, so she came to the Training Station with me so she could meet some of the kids she’s been hearing about.  It was great!  We sat with the kids during their Bible story, watched some three-year-olds learning to play Duck Duck Goose, and played with the kids outside for a little while.

Friday night we went to DeNovo’s with Daryl & Traci from SonRise.  John & Kim from the Gathering Tree were going to join us–and in fact made it as far as the restaurant with us–but they had to leave when they got a phone call saying that their oldest daughter had broken a tooth.  Poor kid.  After dinner, we went to Daryl & Traci’s house to lose a game of ’80’s Trivial Pursuit.

Saturday we borrowed Riley & Jenna, the same kids we had a couple weeks ago.  We went to a pumpkin patch in Salisbury, where the kids fed goats, went through a corn maze, and picked some pumpkins.  Then we all went to dinner at Station 7 in Pittsville.  It was quite an adventure!  It was funny spending several hours with Riley, a kindergarten student, and Carolyn, a kindergarten teacher.  They talked kindergarten most of the time.  I felt like I got a good, free kindergarten education.  By the time we were on the way to take them back home, Riley decided he wants to be a teacher, too.

Sunday evening we went to the new home of the Engles, one of the core families at CrossWay.  We ate a delicious dinner and some incredibly tasty dessert, then played ’90’s Trivial Pursuit.  The game went a little late, so by the end we were trying to help each other win!

A fun weekend, and it was great to spend time with friends!

  1. What good pictures! I can’t believe you lost a game all about the 80’s.. what’s up with that?!

  2. Yeah, it’s kind of embarrassing to admit. But Daryl and Traci have a combined 19 years over Carolyn and me. We were kids during the ’80s; they were young adults.

    Once I was listening to “Jam On It” at the SonRise office, and told Daryl how it took me back to third grade. He said it took him back to high school and reminded him of the car he drove when he was a senior.

    So you could say they had an edge.
