The Weekend!





Well, this week and weekend came and went. It flew by!
On Friday night, the youth went to Hell House in Cedar Hill. This house is not your usual, cheesy, corny haunted house. I would say it's a "reality" house that consists of the harsh realities our youth is facing: abusive relationships, school shootings, bullying, drug abuse, deception, self-injury and abortion just to name a few. It was very intense and those images are going to remain in me forever. Unfortunately, I didn't make it through the whole house because I almost fainted...yes, fainted. Either I became overwhelmed by what I saw or the strobe lights had to do with it. It was really awesome however!!!! I wished I could have finished, but you're not allowed to return. once you exit. If you want to go to a "haunted" house, go to Hell House "City of Death". It's definitely worth the $10
After that, we all went to Kara and Kevin's house for the lock in. It was so much fun, but I was so tired. I left around 2am because I had work the next day.
On Saturday, I did my usual Sat. morning errands and met up with my friend/coworker Stephanie to go costume shopping for the school's fall festival. She already had her costume, but she needed another one for teaching purposes. I couldn't find the chili pepper Iwanted, but I got the best thing...THE CAT IN THE HAT!!!!! Yes, I was the Cat in the Hat for the fall festival.
Anyway, the festival took place that same night and it flew by. The Spanish Club had a blast and so did I! We had the busiest booth....The bean bag toss. The members made it more interesting by having a member stick his head out through the holes as the little ones through a bean bag through the holes. LOL! It was a great night.
Today, I went to church and received some really good insight and word (another blog). After that, I drove to Dallas to help my cousin with his SAT application. It was really nice to spend time with my Godmother and cousin! Later on that evening, I left for home and started working on the progress report grades....wish me luck on that.

So, there's my weekend! Short, but busy! :D
Blessings,
Laura
