DTown 2010

This weekend we had our annual DTown retreat.  These weekends are always such a blast with the girls - especially when I end up with a great group, as I did this weekend.  The staff works so hard to make this weekend a blast for the kids, and I think they are usually quite successful.  We had 480 students and over 100 leaders there this weekend, so there was some guarunteed chaos, wonderful worship, funny skits, photo scavenger hunt, and just great time with the girls. 

My favorite part of the weekend was during our small group times.  The passage that Mike talked on all weekend was Psalm 51.  We spent each session talking about a prayer that David prayed - Clean Me, Teach Me, Use Me, Mold Me, and Break Me.  This definitely made for some great discussion with the girls on how they want the Lord to teach them and mold them and use them.  I love getting to get glimpses of their hearts in these times that I might not otherwise get to see. 

 The group - Amanda, me, Maddie, Rachel, Maddie, Brianna, Taylor.

 Maddie on the floor...hit by some sort of invisible one would pull it out for her.  These girls are funny.

Blurry proof that we do, in fact, see each other outside of family gatherings!

Me and the Fitzers...she's getting married!

Working on a service project - school supply sorting.  Writing notes and praying for the kids.  Praying for God to Use Me.

Photo scavenger hunt - Maddie is SO strong!
