It’s currently 7:23am. Our lock-in began last night at 9pm. For the first 2 hours, we did glo-bowling (cosmic bowling if you’re from the Midwest). After that, we made our way back to the church, had tacos and junk food. Kids played, kids slept, kids hid in a cupboard for over 90 minutes! I thought this year would be different. I thought that this year, I would be able to make it all the way through. After several Pepsi Wild Cherries and a Red Bull, I couldn’t take it any more. At 5:30, I slept, for a whole hour. When I woke up, I was feeling refreshed. Actually, I still am. 91 minutes and counting until this lock-in is in the books and I won’t have to worry about one until next year. Make that 90 minutes…see how time flies when you’re spending it with youth???
Lock-in almost over
