season finale

I haven't blogged much because I've been finishing up the semester. But Wednesday night was our "Season Finale"!

We started a tradition last year. For our final college group meeting of the school year, we went to a Christmas tree farm about 45 minutes away. The owner is a friend and previous boss (I used to work at his farm selling Christmas trees) who graciously allows 45 college students to play all around his huge grounds. We had such a fun time last year, we were really looking forward to this year.

Another great finale! We ate pizza, played with his goats and chickens, and hung out around the fire pit. Then, we piled into the hay wagon (pulled by the farmer's tractor) and rode up to the top of a hill. And then the real fun began. We bought 6 blocks of ice to go ice blocking. We brought plastic saucers to slide down the hill. And to top it all off, someone brought a plastic truck bed lining. You could cram a good 10-12 people in that bad boy.

After an hour and a half of sliding, falling, laughing, biffing, making saucer chains, and pulling people in the bed liner behind a jeep, we headed back down to the fire pit. There we talked about the year, shared stories, and prayed. A great evening to end a great year.
