Fun in the Sun

I was in charge of the parent letter again this weekend and thought I'd share with you all what I shared with the parents of our girls for an update on our happenings over this last weekend. I added some side notes if I thought it needed it to make more sense to you all. So, here it is:

This weekend was full of warm weather and lots of fun times. Friday, after dinner, Amy (my co-RA) walked with a few girls to a nearby field where you can pick your own flowers. They enjoyed the beautiful weather and bought some flowers for the dorm. The rest of the night was mainly spent relaxing and we put on a movie.

Saturday was filled with sports. First, the 7 girls who are in track had to leave at 6 am to head off to Heidelberg. Many of the girls from our dorm achieved their personal record in their event that day. The track girls were gone all day and got back around 11 Saturday night. On a nearby field, the soccer games started at 10 am with varsity girls. The soccer teams were playing a base called Patch who is known to be one of the best. The games continued throughout the day with varsity boys next, then JV girls, then JV boys last who were the only ones that won that day. Many players and spectators got sunburns from their time outside. We are providing lots of Aloe Vera! They did a great job and played their best. Saturday night we enjoyed some pizza and watching the movie "Inception".

The weather was beautiful today, Sunday, too. We headed off to church this morning and came home and had a delicious lunch that Amy headed up by making and grilling bruschetta chicken. We also celebrated Rachel and Taylor's birthdays which both occur over spring break. Many girls took advantage of the beautiful weather by working on homework in the backyard. Our backyard has many beautiful flowers blooming in it right now and the girls have been enjoying it.

Tonight, for dorm fellowship time, our dorm was invited up the hill to the girls' dorm Blauen. They made baked treats for us and put the movie "Cool Runnings" on a big screen. We had a lot of fun fellowshipping with their dorm.

This weekend was a great one to have as our last one before spring break (this is the last school week). All the girls are getting very excited for their spring break plans whether that means getting to their parents, serving on MTrips or the many other things they will be doing. This year has been great so far and we look forward to those last 5 weeks we get to spend with the girls.

Hope you all are enjoying your spring too!
