Hello...we are comfortably laying on the couch watching college football and life couldn't be better. We are recovering from last nights teen lock-in at Venice Church of the Nazarene. It was a LONG night, but we wanted to share some of the highlights from the evening.
We had a great group of teenagers, but they sure had a lot of energy. I (Ashley) discovered a new interest...Rockband! Andy had to practicly shut it off to get me to stop playing. I really enjoyed hanging out with the teens and playing RockBand! We enjoyed some crazy games one of which Andy got to taste raw egg. Yes, you read it correctly, my poor hubby got a taste of his own medicine when one of the other youth workers challenged him to his own game. The object of the game was to blow the raw egg into the other persons mouth before they blew it in yours. Each player had an end of the tube with the raw egg inside. It was pretty gross! The night continued with devotions on the beach at midnight. The teens continued the fun while I attempted to sleep in Andy's office.
It was a great event...13 hours later, 13 pizzas, tons of games, enough Rockbandto make you sore and making an entire box of pancakes....we made it home. I quickly learned the best thing about a lock-in is when it's over! We slept the rest of the day and now we are lazily relaxing on the couch with a little college football. Gotta love youth ministry!
