It's Been Going

You might wonder what the blog title is all about. There is nothing to siginifcant about the title other than the fact that it's been busy the last few days.

On Saturday I was supposed to see my dad (he was with a friend), but he was tired from the auto auction in Calgary, so he came on Sunday and we went to breakfast at the Station. That was the first time I have ever been to Station for breakfast ever. It was pretty good and the way the Station is built is really cool. It has a lot of things to do with trains and whatnot. A lot of history of Strathmore in the pictures and such in the Station. It was good to see my dad if only for a short time. Then he gave me some money before he left. I should mention that he bought a car and a truck.

On Monday the school went to Operation Christmas Child. Basically we were helping get boxes packed, look through the shoeboxes to see if needed to be thrown out, and whanot. Some boxes had to go to the hospital because they were not full enough or the boxes had to be fixed and whatnot. There was other jobs as well. But I did box inspections, I also at one point took the inspected boxes that passed through and put on the the table in age group and gender so they could be put into boxes and packed, and finally I packed the cardboard boxes. J-Rad and I were filling box after box. There were a lot of 5-9 age group of shoeboxes. I don't know why that is. We there all day and by the end of the day we packed a ton of boxes (not literally of course). But there was still so many boxes to be packed and whatnot. Like my friend Rob said, he said that we did a lot of boxes, but when you look back behind you, it's like we haven't even put a dent in them. But to know that we helping with Operation Christmas Child was rewarding. It makes want to go home that much more and see my family. Even though I can't stand Billy Graham, I think that Operation Christmas Child is worthy project. Everyone deserves a Christmas.

Today, Wednesday, we have been practicing and getting everything ready for the Christmas production. There is puppets, drama, choir, and stuff like that. We will be doing this all day. Puppets and drama and the mens small choir group was rehersing in the morning. Then choir is in the afternoon. We will be doing a full dress rehersal this afternoon with puppets, drama, and choir. I think my group has our puppet performance down. It should be good.

That's what has been going on with me as of late. Talk you later.

Keep on rocking in the free world!
