I found a computer!!!

Yesterday, I discovered the 'business center' of the hotel. Yahoo! Free computer use! But I won't be able to post any pictures until I get home.
What made my day, besides finding the computers was when the lady I asked about them glanced at me and said "You have to be 18 or over to use them." I said that I'm pretty sure I qualify and laughed. I didn't realize she was serious!!!! Then she looked at me and she apologized. LOL! I said "Don't apologize, I'll take that as a compliment." Too funny!

So, hello from Green Bay. Or as the sign at the airport said "Welcome to the land of the Packers!" I think they are serious about their football here. ; )

All is going well here. The kids have had a blast. But today, starts the QUIZZING!
So there won't be much more time for playing in the glass elevator and swimming...
Its too funny to see how much fun they have riding this elevator! Nathan and his buddy ran around on all 8 floors of the hotel the first night, meeting people and finding out what state they were from and playing elevator 'tag.'
Last night we heard 10 or 11 kids preach 5 minute sermons from the books they memorized this year. They were awesome! I heard an adult say that the next generation is in good hands! Amen! Nathan and his buddy will have to do sermons the next time they make it to nationals. They would be great at it. We missed the dramatized quoting which I'm sure was awesome. The kids needed a break and so we all played a card game.

The hotel is filled with 200 or so teens who know LARGE portions of the N.T. by heart. Its a neat environment. The high level teams are practicing 6 and 7 hours a day!!! There are college scholarships available to win this week. We heard a senior give our Sunday morning sermon and he'd been in Bible Quiz so long that he knows 10 or 11 books by heart! How amazing is that?!
I better run.
Things get mighty serious today as the matches begin soon....
Blessings from WI!

Becky, would you believe that I got more info and details from your little post than from two phone calls from My Honey who is there with you guys!!! (LOL!) I guess men aren't much for details, huh?
Anyway, I'm glad that Anonymous and Nathan are having a great time! If you get a chance, tell Anonymous that we all say, "Happy Birthday!!!"
Praying for a great first day of quizzing!!
