What Was I Thinking?
We rented an inflatable obstacle course. (fun for lil' and BIG kids!)
I just can't help myself.
20+ kids ranging in age from 6-12. 13 hours. All after a full days work and month's worth of little sleep due to working on the house (house update coming later this week. promise.).
What WAS I thinking?
I must have been outta my mind. It was enough to drive a person to drinking.
Theoretically, but of course we were at church...just scratch that.
Actually, it was fun.
We stayed up ALL night, seriously...ALL NIGHT...I had 3 girls who made it their goal in life (accompanied by a 5 dollar bet from a few of the boys...yeah, first drinking and now gambling).
They almost made it. Just minutes from success. These were taken at 7:05, a mere 55 minutes before the lock-in was over. However, they still beat the boys, who fell asleep at 5:00. They were absolutely giddy when they peeped into the "quiet room" and found the boys snoring.
I played Candy Land about 17 times. No lie. I'm pretty much a professional now.
I used to kiss boys at lock-ins.
Maybe that's why I made sure there was an adult in EVERY room at all times. I'm paranoid. No kissing at church on my watch!
Look at these little sleeping angels.
Some of them asked me when we could have another one and I said "next year". They started whining and complaining that we should have one EVERY week. Psh. Yeah, right.
The best part? Yummy hot donuts in the morning...
yep, sugared 'em up and sent 'em home!
That's how I roll.
Have you been to a lock-in before? Recently? Any favorite lock-in memories?
