7 Quick Takes August 3, 2012

This week has been busy, busy, busy around here!  Six of my children (and myself in the photographer's role) have been participating in Catholic Kids Camp which is a four day event that three young ladies we know have put together every year for the past five years.  It's like VBS, but super-sized.  When these sisters do things, they do them over the top!  It has been a great time.

Every day there's a craft, songs, a skit


a mystery activity, , games, lessons and tons of fun.

 The theme this year is traveling to Jerusalem through the mysteries of the rosary.  Each day there is a themed snack.  Guess which set of mysteries this snack belongs to?

We did go to Chick-fil-A on Wednesday evening, too.  We got there around 7:15 and got our food around 9:00.  Some of us opted to stand in line and others went to the car to try the drive-thru.  The drive-thru won out, while our place in line looked like it might have at least another hour wait.  We all jumped in the van, got our food and sat in an adjacent parking lot to finally eat.

Here is what the crowd looked like while we were there.

It was a neat experience.  A ton of happy people waiting in line to get some food.  At one point a worker from the store came out and brought food to a family that had a severely handicapped daughter so that they didn't have to wait in the heat.  Big cheers for that one.  Then a U-Haul pulled up to deliver more supplies.  People from the crowd formed a line to get the items from the truck to the restaurant.  More cheers from the crowd.  It is just neat to spend time with complete strangers in such a joyful and peaceful atmosphere.

 I've had a great response so far to my free shipping offer on my book "A Plan for Joy in the Home".  Check out this post for all the details.  Have a great weekend!
