All The World\'s... A Mess!

Alright, I have two major issues with the world right now:

1. CAFTA. For those of you, like me, who make a point to dodge the news, you are probably not familar with this new act that the Federal Government is trying to pass. This alledged CAFTA will confine America to more rules but not even rules that we are to abide to as a nation, but as North Americans. See, this CAFTA thing involves Canada and Mexico as well. Um... hello... America\'s government is too different from the government of Canada and Mexico to mesh like this. Basically, if we sign CAFTA, we sign our souls away as a nation. Most state rights have already been taking away (and I\'m not even the hugest supporter of that but I\'m definitely not a fan of a big government or big brother for that matter) and the government already controls a lot. This will just make everything a bigger mess.

2. BP. Also known as British Petroleum. BP is currently advertising as striving to be more environmentally friendly. Hmmm... too bad they\'re not humananely friendly... There was an accident at a BP plant in Texas City, TX and people died. Sure, accidents happen. However, Amaco, who had previously owned the plant, was all about the safety of their employees and took all the precautions they could. BP was not even striving for these safety procedures whenever they took over the plant. How would I know? Because that\'s where my dad used to work... before he was laid off...

So where\'s Ronald Reagan when you need him? Dude... Amanda Manning was wearing a Ronald Reagan shirt this morning... that\'s so awesome... if someone sees her please ask her where she got it!

Sixth Graders and Off-Brand M&Ms

So VBS was more fun today, however, after an unfortunate mistake, I have decided that if I ever do this again, I\'m working with 2nd graders!

Here\'s my story: so Clint and Trevor are talking about some dancer that was popular in 1990 and so I pondered aloud, \"Wow, I was four.\" Then this litte runt of a 6th grade boy looks at me and asks: \"You were four in 1990?!\" And I was like: \"Yeah, I guess y\'all weren\'t even born yet.\" And then he looks at me and he\'s like: \"How old are you?\" I proceed to tell this obvioulsy blind 12 year old that I am 18 and then he\'s like, \"Oh, I thought you were one of us.\" WHAT?!

First off, Clint specifically told the children yesterday that I was helping out and that I was about to go to MTSU, and the kid was there yesterday. Secondly, since when do I look like a 12 year old?! Oh brother... I figure if I work with 2nd graders, there\'ll be no mistakes! I just thought 6 years would be a big enough difference.

Anyhow, aside from that, things were good this morning. My favorite part was snack time because we all get to sit in a big circle and talk while eating off-brand M&Ms that didn\'t taste too great.

Anyhow, so Laser Tag was fun. I got 13th once and 14th the second time (out of 28) which isn\'t great but it\'s good for me. Lauren... I loved talking to you at the mall! Amy... I\'m pretty sure I\'m going to Paint the Town! I\'m excited...

Thanks Nathan for the 24 remarks yesterday! I wasn\'t too terribly disapointed... ha ha.

Random VBS quotes from various children:
\"Mr. Clint...\"
\"Yo, I have dreadlocks and a tripped-out Cadillac.\" (or something like that...)
And Trevor:
\"Stop that piano playing! There aren\'t any pianos in Yellowstone!\" *kid stops playing piano* \"Now, listen to the sounds of nature.\"
Quick convo with Lindsey Kittel:
\"How are you?\"
\"Worn out. I\'m working with four year olds.\"
\"Yeah, that would do it!\"

*EDIT* If anyone wants to go bowling tonight you can call Garrett or Graham or me for details.

About VBS and Whatever Else May Pop Into My Head As I Type...

So, I couldn\'t sleep last night, and then my mom waked me up early. I called Chris and asked if they could use some extra help with the 6th grade and he said sure he guessed they could.

So I went to VBS this morning. It wasn\'t really what I expected, but it was fun. I didn\'t have much personal interaction with the kids, but I didn\'t really mingle with them much either, so I suppose that\'s my own fault. Maybe I\'ll do better tomorrow now that I\'ve gotten a day down and I\'ll be more comfortable. Anyhow, seeing Clint run up on stage with Trevor, watching Chris dance during the music time, and calling Clint \"Pixie Dust\" after he was doused in glitter... wow... it was all so priceless.

So if there\'s a Black History Month, why isn\'t there an Asian History Month, and a Hispanic History Month? Just curious... I was thinking about that while watching Family Matters earlier.

Great quote from yesterday: \"All I did was look at the mirror and I broke it!\" -Brian (read Grace or Mady\'s Phusebox for the back story on that)

Speaking of Brian, why does he always have 24 remarks per post? Just a thought...

If you haven\'t read my previous entry from last night you should... lots of funny pictures from Anna\'s birthday get together...

\"This is my bunny. His name is Tiny. I feed him a lot. Five times a day.\" -little girl from Daddy Day Care (which I am currently watching)

Laser tag tonight... whoo hoo...

Tonight was awesome. Jenna, Graham, Amy A., Aimee D., Brian, Cameron, Anna, Renfroe, and I met up at Blue Coast Burrito for Anna\'s birthday celebration. Then we went to Starbucks and saw Rachael, Rebekah, Sarah, Cari, and Elizabeth. Jenna had to leave early, but the rest of the birthday crew ended up going to the mall. As if we weren\'t already having the fun... the fun cranked up even more! Graham posed with various girly items of clothing and everyone else was being goofy as well. I had probably snapped about twenty shots in Aeropostale when one of the workers politely tells me that it\'s against store policy to take pictures... wow... too bad I\'ve already taken so many! Lol... fun fun times...

It\'s About Time... You Got Your Feet Wet!

I liked this picture so much I stole it from Amy Amonett. That\'s what summer is all about... I want to run throuh a sprinkler...
I don\'t really have much to say except I wanted everyone to know that I am praying for all of you. So many times I\'ll tell someone I\'ll pray for them when I hear they\'re going through a hard time, and then I never do... or I pray for them once. I\'ve read a lot of entries from y\'all, however, where you express confusion or pain or a lot of other things going on in your life. I am seriously and really praying for y\'all, and I am here if you need me. I love you all.
I\'m also reading a lot of entries about VBS and I feel left out. It\'s my own fault for not signing up, but I was depending on the junior high VBS. I love working with that age group but I really haven\'t had much of a chance... yet... that\'s something I still need to pray about...
