My church's lead pastor has been away on vacation. So some of our youth with the consent of what shall remain an unnamed adult decided on Sunday that our pastor's office was in need of some re-decorating. They did a thorough job tinfoiling just about everything in sight. This particular picture shows the pastor's desk and computer station behind the desk. They covered large and small - pencils, pictures, phone, books, and more. If it was there, it was destined to be covered. Great job, youth! :)
Some of you may remember me posting this picture back in February describing some of my work in a scratch bakery. This picture shows the cooker in which I make the sweet goo for our shoofly pies. But the reason, I am posting it again is because of what happened yesterday.
I needed to heat a mixture of molasses and water to a boil. While doing that, I customarily walk away and do other tasks. This time, I came back, lifted the lid to the cooker, and it immediately started boiling over and out. I had put in two and a half five gallon buckets of molasses and three gallons of water; I probably lost a third of that onto the floor.
You can imagine what a sticky mess I had! Fortunately, my supervisor and two other coworkers helped me clean it up. All one could do was laugh especially at the moment I opened the lid and it started pouring out. Other than turning the heat off, all of us were powerless to stop it. They tell me this never happened before in the history of the bakery.
Our church is holding Summer Bible School this week. During Summer Bible School week, the junior youth customarily camp out in tents at the church Sunday night through Thursday night. They come early each evening for games and work projects as the weather permits. This year due to the weather though it is mostly recreation in the evenings and camping out in the church gym. Then in the morning they participate in the regular Summer Bible School program. This year I've been designated the evening camera person for this event. Two of the pictures are posted below.
This is a picture from Sunday evening showing one of the youth sponsors explaining a beanbag tossing game. The youth have milk jugs tied around their waist and will be paired in twos. Each youth tosses the bean bag into the other youth's jug. If successful, he steps back two feet; if not, they are out of the game. The last pair in wins.
This picture is from Monday evening. For this evening the junior youth are joined by the older youth and some young adults. They are playing a game of crab soccer. Initially, they played with one large ball. Later a second smaller ball was also tossed into the game.
