Freaks and Geeks

Just a quick question that I was thinking about this afternoon.
Has anyone ever heard of the show Freaks and Geeks?(Rachel, Sarah and Joe, don't answer 'cause I know you have seen it.)
It was on when I was younger. I remember Dad watching it.
That's some of the cast in that picture. Wow, the main character looks way younger than when I watched that show when I was little. Well, at least I thought he was the main character.... Okay, I'm just going on and on. :P I have to watch that show again someday.
Well, I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of it.

Higher Things Conference Amen!!!

Okay, On Tuesday morning we left at 4am and we arrived home this morning at 2am.
I got more sleep than the last conference, For You.
At For You I went to sleep at 1 or 2am every day, but this year I fell asleep at 12 or 1am. I like sleeping 5 hours better than 4. :)

I actually hadn't ever met anyone at Amen except 3-wait-4-wait-5 people! The people I met were: Emily, Steffan, Cheryl, Josh (well, I didn't actually meet him at For You, but I saw him there and he ate with us once, and he had shorter hair and I think glasses.) and Alexa!
And I met Anna, Maggie, Nick, Joel, Nat, Eric, Matthew, Ben, Jordan, Sarah, Elenore and Andy.....Hmm I feel like I forgot someone. If I did just tell me. :)

Okay, There was no time any day where we weren't doing something! I loved that. there was no time where I didn't know what I was going to be doing next! Well, except for Free Time, sometimes I didn't know what I would be doing for that, but we always did something fun!
twice we played Emmauball! The Emmaus clan made up that game. At first we were all playing Volley ball, but it was too complicated (Not to mention I was terrible at it!) so it was changed to Emmauball. All you have to do in that game is try and get it over the net.(well, at least that's what I did.) And some people kicked it under :D that game was so much more fun.

On the third day there was Kareoke night! that was amesomness! But the sad thing was Rachel, Sarah and I didn't get to sing our song. :( Jenny (867-5309) by Tommy Tutone is what we were going to sing. Actually, Rachel wanted to sing Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-lot, but I was too chicken. Anyways, we didn't get to sing at all because there wasn't enough time for everyone who wanted to sing to sing. :(

Also, the entertainment was great! everyone in my group went to a water park. Rachel and I only went down water slides twice because the pools closed before we could go down again. After that we all went over to where my dad and other people were playing flag football. Little did we know that they were playing Shirts VS Skins!! D: x-( I was rooting (Silently) for the shirts team the whole time, even though my dad was on the skins team.

My sisters, some of the MHers (Which I am not one of :'( Yet!) and I were in choir. I love choir. Rachel actually took one of the hymn sheets back home with us! I'm not sure we were allowed, but Oh well! :D

I fell like I was much too quiet...But I can't really not be! especially with a big group like we had, but everyone there was so great, they're all such fun people. :)

The whole Conference was wonderfull. I can't wait to go again next year! I think we'll go to the one in MI. My dad keeps joking about going to the one in Sweden. :)
But whichever one we go to I know I'll be happy.

We're Back!

Okay, I'm back, but I'm too tired to write yet, so I'll write later.
And just so you know, The Conference was AWESOME! :)

Higher Things Conference in Scranton PA! Happy Bday Sammy!

So, I haven't posted in a million days, but Oh well.
Rachel, Sarah, My dad and I are going to Scranton PA for this years Higher Things Conference at 4am! x-( I'm NOT a morning person. I just hope someone will really wake me up or I might sleer right through it. It's only around 8 hours away, and for my family that's a relatively short trip.
I have all my clothes packed, and now all I need to do is pack all my other random junk! :D

Okay, in the past 22 days since my last posting here's what has happened:
First, We had the Con-grad-firmation party (It was the Con-Graduation party, but Dad says we should call it the C-grad-firmation party. So people know it was Joe's Confirmation party too.).
A lot of people came, most of our extended family did! 2 of my dad's sister's family's, my mom's sister's family and my mom's brother. Also, My dad's parents. :-) :-) :-)
Church people and other friends came too. The Schreiber family, Mrs. and Rachel Engebretson, The Johnson family, the Frantz family, Mr. and Mrs. Golding, And the Branson family.
I hope I spelled all those names right.

the party was on the 14th.
All the relatives left on the 15th right after church. :( most of them, wait, no, All of them came on the 12th.

Here are some pictures!!!

Okay, I have to stop typing now, because I really need to go to sleep. :)
Happy Birthday to Sam! He's 9 now. XD

Confirmation Day

Yay!!! Today has been great! Cake, cookies, chicken and CHOCOLATE!!! <3 :D
My Little Bro JayJay(aka Joe) Was confirmed today! There wasn't going to be communion today, but apparently someone in the congregation requested it, because of Confirmation day. I'm glad they did. In the middle of the service Joe was trying to tell me how to hold out my hands to take communion! LOL I told him "Joe, I've already finished confirmation class.I learned this 2 years ago." :D :D :D :D It was pretty funny. Heehee.

Well, he's confirmed now, so I guess he's more of a 'big kid', and I guess I'll have to start treating him like one. :( Ah well.

Well, after church today there was a Pot Blessing (aka Pot Luck.), and it's the best one I've seen in ages!!! So much yummy food!!!! Like I said :" Cake, cookies, chicken and CHOCOLATE!!! <3"
Well, I'm off to!
