On Thursdays, we have menu chapel, a time when our high school kids can choose the devo that they want to go to. This nine weeks, I offered a movie showing of I Am Not Ashamed, the story of Rachel Scott who was a victim in the Columbine shootings. When the movie was over, I reached out to the producer Chuck Howard, who is Kim Brooks's brother and Terri Minton who played Rachel's mom who is the aunt of one of my students. It was a great day, and we learned so much.

We had a great time at Candace and Jim's wedding in Florida. Phillip, Jonathan, Gabe and I left on a Friday morning after dropping boys to school and got to Florida around 3:00. We hit the beach for a few hours before meeting Candace, Jim, Nick, Debbie, and Cassie and Brian for dinner. Saturday was fabulous. Phillip rose early to go fishing with the guys, and I got up and took a three mile walk on the beach then Joni, Christy, and I went and sat on the beach for two hours before going to Candace's girls' beach day for another three hours. Then we went to Stinky's for dinner before going to the beach bonfire. On Sunday, Phillip and I went to the store to get stuff for breakfast and ran in to Jim, so we invited him and Jonathan over for steak and eggs, and then I went to the beach for a few hours before the wedding. The wedding was gorgeous and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. It was a great weekend.
