Patachou has been one of my favorite breakfast spots since I moved to Indy because of their heavenly cinnamon toast. Lucky me, I got to share my morning with the one and only Alli Kenney. I loved our camp and Tecumseh conversation today and how thoughtful she always is.
More Storyline quotes made it on my latest crafts and will soon be in the hands of great friends.
teacher-to-be sweater, and a beautiful 80s prom dress. I know that if anyone can wear these outfits well it's this girl.
Stop #2 took us to Uncle Bill's so Natty could hold a beagle. Even though animals aren't on my list of favorite things I still ended up holding a cat and puppy too.
Hannah and Haleigh have been two of the girls I've been doing YL with since day 1 in Fishers. They're two great friends of mine and getting to lead Wyld Life with them is always fun. My girl Syd is a rock star and I can't tell you how much I miss seeing her in 4th period every day. Thankfully she stops by my classroom multiple times a day.
Oh my gosh. Maddie, Carly, Cecilia and Natty are wyld. They're the kind of girls that know how to get a dance party started and they go hard until they're sweating and their ponytails have fallen out.
We had a blast tonight with this whole crew of Wyld Life leaders and kids. I'm continually thankful for new faces and old friends every time we meet. My hope is always that kids will feel welcome when they walk in, know that they are loved and that they learn a little more about Christ.
Then we had a throw down dance party. The kind when every person in the room is dancing and singing. It was one of those dance parties that no one wanted to end and there may have been a little crowd surfing going on too.
Connor gave the Club Talk tonight which was so great. He shared about God's love for us and how it's not something that we have to earn or find. It's a gift. He told us that God loves us so much that he sent his only son to die for us and that love changes everything. Nothing we do can ever change that love.
Our hope is to introduce kids to a life with Christ that will be about a relationship with God. We want to love them unconditionally, or the best that we can. We want these kids to live life to the full together and to have a space where they feel safe to really be themselves.
Tonight I think we did that well. God wants to partner with us as we pursue our passions and Wyld Life is a beautiful picture of that partnership.
Next many of the Wyld Life leaders headed to Natty B's house to rejoin the birthday party. Their was surprise party at her house that we got to join. I was thrilled to see people like Sherisa, Lauryn Davidson, Isa, Erin Vanmeter, Cassidy and Maggie Tully.
Natty's cake had her baby picture iced on and everyone got to take a selfie with it. We played Just Dance, looked at freshmen homecoming pics and enjoyed the cheese fountain.
So thankful for Natalie and the fun, creative, big-dreaming, quirky, loyal friend that she is.
