again and again...

i woke up at 2:00am on friday, bc well, i'm getting older and i had to pee...again. {darn kids}
i look out the front bedroom window to see the joy and wonder of the love of high school ministry...
a tp'd yard.

i chuckle.
i smile.
i go back to bed...knowing ryan will be driving up from his trip from china in less than an hour...to which he WILL NOT smile or chuckle.

the next morn i go to make some fresh nectar of the gods {coffee} and i look out the kitchen window to the back yard...was it real? was it true??they totally nailed the entire yard this time...and in 30 minutes!
man, they are getting really good at this stuff...

...nothing was left untouched. the deck was wrapped and strung.
{i counted 3 family packs of tp wrapping...}

they got the pergola, every tree. even some of my neighbors trees.

those hs kids...they are consistant if they are anything!
they show us soooo much love...and it's always when ryan is returning home from a business trip.

we spent a lot of time doing tp jumping and cleaning up on saturday morn...it's a fam thing. the neighbors pitched in and it wasn't all that bad. please don't misunderstand, i would def rather have been doing something else with the fam, but we were together, so i'll count it all good.

besides...kids in your youth ministry that drive 4o minutes to tp you, really do love you. or they are just plain silly.

to which i have decided, upon this 3rd time this summer, they are both.
and they should be a little forewarned, now there's a dog in the house and there will be poop in the yard...and she will be big and bark at you!

I've always wanted to tp someone's house. I know it's wrong, but it seems so right. *wicked grin*

So good to be loved! Hey, maybe you can recycle and use it for the youth ministries bathrooms.

I can't help but count the money when I see it hanging from the trees like that. LOL (so many butts I could've wiped ! LOL)

Happy WW!

WackyMummy said...

I can't help but admire your attitude of go with the flow. If it was me, well, the first time would be funny... the second time would be "ha, ha, ... ok, enough already"... the third time would be a freakout and some cussing. Glad to hear you're having fun with it! =)

Life with Kaishon said...

What a great attitude you have. I love that : )

Pam said...

ahhhh... kids... at least it was not below freezing when these girls showed you the love! it's been awhile since we got it, not since we got our second dog & he live outside! :)

Karen said...

Wow, that is one stellar job. We've been TP'd for the first time this summer, although the youth group denies it. My personal favorite was the TP fountain in the birdbath. Gotta love the enthusaism of youth.

Brandy said...

TP ♥. Now wonder the kids love you guys...instead of getting mad you think it's funny. I think it's pretty darn funny too!

It has been a while since my last visit and was so glad to see you are still blogging away! In style I might add, I read through a number of posts and they had me smiling in the way you talk about your sweet family, the pictures and your words of care for others. I hope in increase my blogging again, a bit at a time, I am having quite a bit of fun in life!
Blessings to you!
