"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Rylie's Farm

Yesterday Hollie's class went to Rylie's Farm in Oak Glen. She was SOOOOO EXCITED to ride the bus.

I t was kind of a cloudy day but never rained while we were there.

The kids had to stay in line and listen to the rules when they first got there.

First demo was crushing apples and making apple cider. The kids each got to drop an apple in the crusher. All the apple was cought in a next and then smashed and all the juice came out.

Then they fed all the apple "stuff" to the farm bull. Trevor even got to come along.

The next activity was playing games with wood sticks and circles. They really liked that.

the best part was everyone got a carmel apple. Ohhh soo good.

Then it was lunch time and a class picture.

One last picture of me and the kids next to the pretty trees. We had a fun time.
