The Last day - Unity Retreat 2011

Everyone was excited to begin the morning.

 Of course we began with an amazing breakfast!
 Britton has already said he wants drums like McLain for Christmas.

 Sam and Trace were nice enough to clean up for everyone.

 For worship with morning, Brandon decided to do an activity.
 Everyone had a piece of paper on their backs and we signed them with encouraging words of thanks and appreciation.

 And they kept going and going....

 and going and going...

 I'm not sure how many times Brandon said we needed to wrap it up and they said they weren't finished. So the encouraging words went on.

 After finishing up and some songs, we thanked everyone involved and then started packing up. Words can not begin to express our gratitude for everyone involved in this weekend. We could not have done it without you. The purple team ended up winning this weekend but overall, it was more about unity and less about winning. So proud of the youth this weekend and how Christ was glorified through their words and actions.

 Love this picture.
Britton rode the bus home and had way too much fun with Mr. Barry. It's the little things that he remembers on every trip and one of the highlights for him is always riding the bus.

We headed home tired but fulfilled. This weekend was full of blessing and will be forever etched in my mind.
