Books and pictures.

So, book club was on Wednesday and it was good and fun. Jen, Breezer, Kara, Kate, and I hung out and talked about inappropriate teacher outfits and Bri talked about inappropriate nursing experiences. Ha (cue girls: the buttons for guys talk)...The next book on the agenda, What Alice Forgot. Thanks Kara's mom for the recommendation! 

Summary for y'all: What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over? Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. A knock on the head has misplaced ten years of her life, and Alice isn't sure she likes who she's become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.

And just one more book that is the cutest book ever...for all you teachers, moms, oh, just anyone. I read it to my students and became the #1 fan.

In this original tale, Jack accidentally receives an invitation to the princess's birthday party. He resourcefully gathers ingredients and bakes a wonderful cake. On his way to the castle, the cake is slowly demolished by crows, a troll, a spooky forest, a dancing bear, and even a palace guard, until the only present Jack has to offer the princess is the story of the cake's demise. Of course, this gift pleases her much more than the boring rubies and tiaras brought by richer guests, and she declares that her new friend will have the honor of cutting the royal cake.

Also, quick. We started high school small groups last Sunday and Alex Ehly (he is just showing up in the blog left and right now, and you're welcome), gave the students the assignment of drawing their hs leader in like 3 minutes...and every student had to pitch in. This might just sum up this year.

Adam's group:

Which brings me to a request. One of the students in Adam's small group, Trevor, got in a horrible car accident on Wednesday. He is going to make it but has a long road to recovery. Lots of surgeries, lots of pain and rehab I'm guessing:(  So, any prayers for him and his family would be much appreciated. Trevor is such a great kid. It's weird. Sunday he was up in front of everyone explaining what this fiasco of a picture meant and then a week later he is in the hostpital taking it day by day. Again, life is precious. Take time to draw near to God.

Sorry, this post was all over the place. I know you are just taking it all in;)
