Today, the Junior Youth of my church and a neighboring church held a joint afternoon road rally and game time. The youth and us adults who went from my church gathered in the fellowship hall after church and Sunday School to eat our bag lunches before the activity.
The road rally was a challenge. There were eight teams that went out and not a one figured all the clues out correctly. But we were being mostly scored on time and mileage. The car I was driving had a good combination of individuals to decipher the clues and came in first winning a bag of jelly beans. :) Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from the road rally itself.
While people were arriving back from the road rally, it was snack time. And there were loads of snacks brought by the other church - chips of all sorts and salsa, chocolate chip cookies, candy, and pretzels.
After all the youth were back, there was a period of organized game playing. I had been talking with a driver from the other church when the first game started and did not hear the name of it. But it basically was a game in which the youth who were "it" had to catch all the other youth who also became "it" and had to join in on catching the remaining youth until all were captured. The people were captured by lifting the person off the ground. As you can imagine, the person being captured sometimes put up quite a bit of resistance. Below are two pictures from this game.
The next two pictures are of the youth playing frisby football - a little less physical. :)
I spent the evening at home. And after all the snacks from the afternoon, I only ate vanilla yogurt and frozen blueberries for supper. After supper, I spent a couple hour finishing the reading of the novel entitled The Darwin Conspiracy authored by John Darton. It examines some of the enigmas of the Darwinian origin of the theory of evolution. Not all is as it often appears to be.
