Weekend Roundup


* We got to go celebrate a young lady's birthday...She's been my little buddy since she was a tiny little thing. She's like my baby sister & I think the world of her - but she turned 18... EIGHTEEN! 
An adult? 
Shut up
... this kind of stuff blows my mind
...  &makes me feel old

* We ate at a Japenese place
I've never ate at one before
Where they prepare the food in front of you on the hot grill, throwing eggs on their head & making onions into volcanos.
A pretty cool experience
... & YUMMY food


*Wanted to sleep in as long as I could because I knew it was going to be a crazy, long, fun-filled weekend

* Packed up & ready to go


I will be posting a whole post about it tomorrow but I gotta upload pictures & when I got home last night, I was exhausted & ready for bed



* Getting into my little car after driving a huge rental, extended van for 2 days feels REALLY funny. 
& my car isnt really 'little'
its a Hyundai Santa Fe
Just anything after a extended van seems little

* our van was full of 10 girls
we sang Broadway songs & songs from the Glee soundtrack the whole way
I have no voice today... but it was worth it

I'm so exhausted, I cant even tell you
But it was worth it
seeing kids worshipping God is ALWAYS worth it....
& now, my next half marathon is Saturday
so I'm praying my body recovers & gets pumped

this could be ugly


  1. Your weekend sounds WAY better than mine! Love the recap!

    Good luck on the this the Derby? I have a few friends who are running in it, too! Small world :)

  2. A van of 10 kids? I can barely handle the 4 I have! I would have driven into a ditch just to end it all. You're much stronger than I am.
    Love that photo! She looks cool! Like a rockin' Joan Jet, 2012 version.
    I took some photos of the kids on Friday that I'm posting tomorrow. They've very "R.J.Vincent". I think you'll approve.

  3. Driving a van full of kids reminds me of camp! Glad you had a great time and came back with a heart overflowing!

    And dig the photo. You're so stinkin' talented!

  4. Rebecca...I love the composition in your photo. Love how she's holding a quitar, too. Simply beautiful. Singing Broadway tunes would have been right up my alley! I can only imagine the fun y'all had! When kids make a connection with Christ...I can't think of anything better.

  5. happy birthday to your daughter..sounds like a great way to celebrate!!

  6. Sounds like fun! I remember taking a group of teens to Nashville for International Youth Convention a few hundred years ago. Hubby was the youth pastor at that time. We drove those big vans too! We had a blast and I wouldn't trade those memories for anything!

  7. I love that photo ... beautiful.

    I do not have the patience to work with kids ... but admire those who are called to work with young people. What an awesome reward to see them connect with Christ!

  8. Glad you had a really satisfying weekend! Looking forward to seeing the pictures! Hope you get your voice back and the energy for this upcoming weekend! :)

  9. I agree, seeing kids worship God is the best. God bless you and your work!
