This just in from the internet-less Speckhals’ posting from the church computer:
We had a great weekend, praise the Lord. Friday night, we took about 45 teens and adults from the church to the 8th & I Marine Barracks in Washington DC (a little over 2 hours away) to watch the evening parade. It was amazing!
But…on the way back, the church bus blew out a rear-inner tire. We didn’t get home until almost 3:30a. We were just a 15 miles from church when the tire decided to do its own thing, which made it easier to get home. Everyone’s parents came to the truck stop, and we got a ride with someone back to church. The bad news is that we will not be able to run the bus itself until we get 4 new tires on the rear of the bus. We will have to run the church van instead.
My side of the family is coming to visit for a few days! It should be fun to show them around a little bit. They will be here tomorrow early in the afternoon.
Some great news I just read a few minutes ago–President Obama caved in and put up the white flag to those of us who didn’t want socialistic health care! See the news here.
