The kids left today for a couple of days at the Chapel House at The University of Florida with the church youth group. I'm guessing they were a little bit excited about it - Clay woke up early, took a shower, packed, cleaned his room (all without prompting) and was ready to go by 9:30 am. Unfortunately, they weren't leaving the church until noon.
I'm not really sure exactly what they will be doing there - but they are sleeping at Chapel House, which has couches instead of pews. Sounds like fun!! They rode down with Mrs. Whitelaw, who is the chaperone, and I think they were as excited about spending time with her as they were about the excursion itself!
After we dropped them off at the church, Tim and I went to the amazing and fun Chamblin's Bookmine (a HUGE used book store). After browsing for a bit, we went to lunch, and now are planning an excitement filled afternoon of emptying and cleaning our pantry, and then painting it. WOO HOO. Be still my heart.
