Blind Slough

We went to Blind Slough for an activity with the children from our church ages 8-11. (This was last month I’m just really slow at getting around to posting about it.)  Jessica and Will Hill were the leaders and we just went along as extra adult supervision. Mostly because we have a really big van and can take a lot of children in it.  We got some great photos of the kids jumping off the bridge and kayaking, but I wonder if the kids favorite event wasn’t our tire blow out on the way home.

In the beginning the kids thought it would be fun to jump off the bridge.  One by one they challenged and encouraged each other.  By the end nearly everyone had jumped.

Sherrad’s jump

Virginia isn’t in Activity Day’s anymore (She’s now Young Women’s age) but since we were going she had to come and she was dieing to go in a kayak.  She was very hesitant since she wasn’t officially part of the group but Will and Jessica were very gracious about letting her go out for a quick moment while they started putting the yellow kayak away.  She was hooked from this one experience.  As were Asa and Sherrad.

On our way home we suddenly heard a loud pop and then the car started pulling hard.  Yup we got a flat tire.  Luckily we had a spare and Will and Jessica were behind us.  So they pulled over and helped; making it a quick job.  We feel very blessed that it all worked out so well!  We will not be taking another trip out the road until we can get another spare.
