I had this big plan for all my post this week. Monday, was supposed to be a book review but, I posted it early. So it became something random. Tuesday is for new recipes. Wednesday is Wacky Wednesday, Thursday cake pops and Friday was going to be a fun quick craft.
Sadly, I didn’t get the fun craft done in time for my post. Mainly because I got a little lazy and I was really tired this week. The craft is almost done! But I won’t post about it until next week.
Good news though, I have something to share with you!
Yesterday I spent the entire day with a bunch of rowdy and amazing teenagers. I volunteer with the youth group at my church and we took them to Carowinds yesterday. I rode so many roller coasters! I had a group of four girls and a friend.
I went a month or so ago with my mom and my brother, but my brother got sick and my mom doesn’t ride rides. So, while it was fun, I left feeling a little disappointed because I didn’t get to ride too many rides. This time though, we hit up as many rides as time allowed!
We had one girl that wouldn’t ride the Intimidator, which is an amazing ride! And we had another girl that wouldn’t ride anything that went upside down. They don’t know what they were missing out on. No one wanted to do drop zone, except one girl, who drug another one along with her. Poor girl. It really was an amazing day. I would share pictures, but some people are weird about having their kids faces on the internet, which makes sense and I totally respect that.
Today, my forehead is red (as well as my cheeks and nose), my throat is sore (from screaming!), and my body is just a little sore. I didn’t come out as bad as I thought I would. I can deal with the little bit of pain, it was worth all the fun I had.
I started volunteering because I feel like a teenager sometimes. I knew they wouldn’t let me attend the youth group (lol) so I volunteered. Actually, I wanted to be that one person that was there for them when they were in a rough spot. I don’t want them to feel as alone as I did when I was a teen. It has been the best decision I have ever made.
After a little over a year, I am finally starting to bond with some of the teens. It’s really nice. And in some weird way, it’s actually making me grow up a little more. Yet…have more fun!
It probably doesn’t make any sense, but I don’t know how else to put it. For once in my life, I finally feel like I have found where I belong, at least in one aspect in my life.
