Since it stormed and rained yesterday, it also became a real mystery outing for me. The forecast was rain all afternoon and it started around 10 a.m. That pretty much made it easy for those in charge to determine to use the rain plan instead. What are they going to do that would especially fun for the kids for 5 hours? I was disappointed because I knew the kids would have really enjoyed hiking at Virginia Kendall; however, our summer interns who assist with children and youth ministry for the summer did a fantastic job on coming up with an alternate plan the kids really enjoyed.
As they arrived, they were invited to join in a game of "spoons" using popsicle sticks. Then they worked on creating a container to protect an egg from breaking when they dropped it from a balcony. They came up with all kinds of different ideas.

The sun finally came out around 3:00 when we headed for Steak-n-Shake for milkshakes for everyone. Two girls in our group never got their shakes until everyone else was finished so they finished theirs on the van heading back to the church.
It turned out to be a fun time after all!
