Well, it's that time of year again...when you live in the mule capital of the world, apparently the highlight of your year is Mule Day, which happens to be today. I'm sure you're thinking, did I read that right? Oh yes you did! The festivities are a whole week long but the culmination of the whole week is the first Saturday in April (today) where there is a parade, mule pulls, shows, contests, auctions, and other such delights. And you're probably also thinking, "who would go to such a thing?" Well, you'd be surprised. It's a madhouse out there. People come from all over the place, and they bring their mules too! Well, ok, I admit it...sometimes I go too. It can be kind of fun, although not as much fun as the Goat Festival in October. So everyone mark your calendars for next year, hitch up your mules, and come on down! And in the spirit of the season, I'd like to wish each of you a very happy Mule Day. Any many more!
My parents got a Wii!!!! I'm so excited about this, Ben and I went over last night and played until after midnight. We bowled! We golfed! We boxed! We played tennis! We raced cows! All in all I'd say it was a good night. And man am I sore this morning! I can't wait to go back over tonight. Have any of you ever played one or have one? Do you know any fun games that don't come with it already?
I was hoping to get some helpful input...In a few months the congregation that I am a member of is going to have a weekend gospel meetng lecture-type series especially for the young folks (middle school and high school age primarily). The name of the series is something like "Wholly devoted to God." Anyway, in preparation for this, some of the class teachers have been trying to get the kids involved by discussing their gifts/talents that they can use for God's service. However, the only thing that the kids think they're good at is sports-related. And that's it...nothing else...only soccer, football, softball, etc. Well, the teachers are a bit stumped on how to instruct the kids on using their sports skills for His service. Any ideas?
Hey all!! New to pleo but everyone told me how cool it was on here. Right now I'm just visiting Tampa, on business. I'm a dental hygienist and just down here working. I've been married to Ben Prasser for 5 years and doing great. Looking forward to hearing from friends I haven't heard from in a while. Thanks for reading!!
