Happy Dr. MLK, Jr. Day!

January 19, 2009

It’s Monday and it snowed last night. And it’s pretty cold outside. And I think we’re supposed to get more snow. 🙂 I was kind of glad to see it, actually, because we haven’t had much snow yet this winter and I figured we were due. Plus, there was already no school today, so we didn’t have to spend a snow day on it.

We had a busy weekend. Jason went hiking/backpacking in Hoosier National Forest with a group from TopSpot Outdoors. I attended a memorial service at our church for a member of our church who meant an awful lot to many people–Bull Dawson. Yesterday was church and then a movie night at youth group. We watched “The Village” which I really like (but I’m a fan of M. Night Shyamalan).

Right now I’m at church. I’m working on planning some summer mission trip stuff. We’re going to spend a week on the Rosebud Reservation in Rosebud, SD. It’s a Lakota Sioux reservation. We’re going to do some home rennovation and help run a Kid’s Club. We’re going with Youthworks, which is the company that hosted our Toronto trip in 2007. Today, I’m doing some research about what there is to do in South Dakota on our last day there. We’ll likely find some activities to do on Friday, stay in a hotel on Friday night, and begin our trip back on Saturday morning. I know Mt. Rushmore seems like a no-brainer, but if anyone has suggestions for what to do in the Rushmore/Rapid City area, I’d love to hear about it. I’ve checked websites and stuff, but personal recommendations are way better.

When I leave here, I’m going to go work out and then head home. Jonas will be at our house this afternoon and I think we’re going to go to Mikey’s Monkeys, the new indoor mini golf place in town. I think(?) there is more snow on the way for later….but I haven’t had that certified by Wayne Hart.

There are several people from our church and from Henderson who have gone to D.C. for the Inauguration. Please pray for Dana, Mark, Madison, Alex, Harrison, John and India, and all the students on the Henderson County Schools STEP trip–that they would have a safe trip and an awesome experience!
