Church Picnic

We had a church picnic last Saturday. It was a lot of fun. My group (girls 12+) played kickball, soccer, dodgeball, and water balloon toss! Christian and Nicholas were with the 7-11 year old boys, Rebecca was with the 7-11 year old girls, Rachael and Selah were with the 3-6 year old girls, and John-Louis was with the 3-6 year old boys. At 5:30, we ate dinner. It was delicious!
