My Weekend

So I don’t really know what to write about this week, isn’t that sad I have only had this blog for month and I am already out of things to talk about. Everything this week has seemed so rushed; Saturday we (the youth group) had a car wash to raise money for Central Dallas Ministries’ After School Academy, which Rachel Embry is the director of. It went great, we raised a good amount for them and we were impressed with how many students, parents, and kids showed up to help and work hard. Sunday flew by as usual and then on Monday I went to Austin for my cousin’s funeral. It is weird to go to a family member’s funeral when I had only met him maybe 2 or 3 times in my life, of course I was sad for my family but I can’t say that it really affected me. What was sad was that the priest who did his funeral didn’t even know him and so he had nothing personal to add or comfort to provide, the priest just did a common Catholic funeral. It was unnerving just to think about that after this man had lived 30 something years all that the priest had to say at this funeral was that he liked to make people laugh. Not that making people laugh is a bad thing but I mean really, that’s not what I want said about me. Anyway, after that day on the road I feel like I am behind in everything, but praises that I am not stressed yet because it is work that I have a passion to do. I guess that’s it.

Oh, and thanks Joe for coming all the way from Florida to help us wash cars and not even get any pizza.

Good blog. I know what you mean about being busy. One more week and we get to relax or at least have tons of fun. I can't wait. I'm sorry about your cousin, but I know how it is not knowing a family member very well so it doesn't effect you in that way. See you soon!!!!

Hey Crysty-
I'm enjoying your blog! I used to have one but I stopped doing it for some reason, maybe I need to start back up to get on board with all you guys! Anyways, thanks again for all your help with the car wash...the kids made some posters and thank you cards this week, so i need to get those to you. It was really exciting to make that much money, but it was also fun just working together with the youth group. I hope you've had a good week and we'll have to get together again soon!
Love ya,
Rachel

Me and Cyndy need to get our cars washed. We'll probably stop by the next time you guys do one.
