my weekend started on thursday at lunch. i left work and headed home to pack:
this is what i packed: more than one shirt with an attached cape, a tutu, my lutheran 2 shirt, and my lyo staff shirt. (come back tomorrow from my #ootd post to see each of these in action!)
off to the synod senior high gathering for me :)
thursday evening the senior high lyo kids arrived at camp (lyo stands for lutheran youth organization. it's a great group of people in our synod that put on yearly youth gatherings for the jr and sr high youth in our synod). these lyo kids are such a joy to be around!! there is lots of laughter, it's good for the soul to be with them :)
friday the partcipants came to camp. after that the whole weekend seems to fly by.
we got to hear great speakers! our main speaker for the weekend was pastor mike from st. andrew's lutheran in mahtomedi, mn. if you live by there you should totally go check him out- he's awesome. i could listen to him everyday. our other speaker was our bishop, larry wohlrabe. it's always a joy to see him and to hear him speak. he's friends with my dad and i've come to be friends with him as well. he gave me a bit of a hard time for moving because it means i'm no longer in 'his' synod.
we played fun games- minute to win it style.
we had an amazing musician, nate houge. he's also from the twin cities. if you have a chance to see him, you should.
he taught us a fun new table grace to the tune of thrift shop.

we ate delish food. and snacked a lot. i'm feeling to today, i should probs join a gym...
sunday a noon to participants left. the lyo board cleaned up after them then we headed into town (just happened to be my hometown!!) to eat at zorbaz. yum-o.
after that i went and got our tax info from my mother-in-law.
then to dinner with my family. we watched the start of the acm's at the bar my mom manages (where we ate dinner). then i headed back to our apartment.
it was a fun, fast, exhausting weekend.
thanks for hosting such a fun link up syndal!
everyone should go play along!
love, mrs. k
