37 girls and 12 fabulous women helped me pull off an all night adventure, Friday night. "Kudos" also goes to my hubby and son who hauled, set up and helped. There was lots of food eaten, pictures taken and laughter ringing. But I do have to say I am getting too old for this all night mess. That is why I can only pull off one lock in a year. I AM TIRED!!!
Overall, it was fun. I had 6 teams of various aged girls running all around our church compound in search of clues leading to a hidden treasure. They had to deck out in color teams, bob for apples, dig through sand, get their whole group through a rope "spiderweb," make a video, and several other fun tasks. My son loved it, because on one task, he was dressed in black, hiding, shooting them with water guns.
After my men folk left, the girls settled down for door prizes, a devotional story moment and then a movie. They were good girls, even letting this old gal sleep some. :)
Who ever said Christian teenagers don't know how to have fun, well they need to come down and hang with us for a while. :)
