Getting ready for the AMAZING RACE!!!
No - not the tv show... but the youth event that is going down today! Ever see the tv show? Then you know what's in store for the youth form our church today. They will be taking out at 3:00 from our church & have 12 different "pit stops" they have to go to. The pit stops involve homes of people from the church & they have to perform whatever activity that host home involves... talk about fun!
Because we dont want these kids on the road driving like idiots (like they do on the show) - we're basing it on timed events at each pit stop. Safety first!
These kids are going to come to the finish line wet, muddy, poop smelling & probably ready to gag...now THAT'S a youth event. The pastor's wife hit the nail on the head - she said, "if someone throws up on themselves or pees on themselves - that's a true sign of a successful youth event"... amen sister!
At my house - the pit stop is involving dimes... & a mess... they have to dig in a 5 gallon bucket that is filled with macaroni (thanks Lynn!) & tomato sauce to find 50 dimes... there are also like 200 pennies & 100 nickels mixed in...
Some other pit stops involve shoveling horse poop, an obstacle course, archery, ponds on people's property, bobbing for apples IN ICE!!!!!, Christmas carol challenges, a gross buffet....how much fun is that going to be?
We have the best church family that is involved with these kids... & a big thanks to Christy - who is the MASTER of organizing events! And to our youth minister Jeremy, who is all about letting these kids have fun!
So off to get my "pit stop" ready...
