Good times comin'

Just got back from shopping for our confirmation retreat. I can still hit the bullseye sometimes. I got huge quantities of really good food for eight people for $130 and change. That comes out to $16.25 or so apiece. We're charging $15 for the weekend's food, and I figured I'd get nowhere close to that, but this is almost as good as splitting the willow.

Meanwhile, I ask for your prayers for my confirmands: boys Marshall, Michael and Alex; girls Mikayla, Chelsea, and Brooke. And for me and Cheryl, my female co-leader, of course.

Well, gotta finish up my personal prep for the weekend. Banzai!
