I am so tired!

Today I had my Biology test. That went pretty well, then I came home and worked on a small amout of World View, I still have almost all of it to do and class is tomorrow. For PE we went biking. I rode really fast and got a good workout, but the I had to go straight to Swim team, plus we did a giant kick set, like 100 slow, 8 25's all out, 100 slow, 6 25's all out, 100 slow 4 25's all out, twice. Now my legs are really, really sore!!! Not fun.

CYPU Fall Ministry Project!

I just got the e-mail from Anna Fairs - actually from Pastor Johnston - about the Fall Ministry! I am soooooooooo excited. ECHO was my first CYPU event, and now I can go to all of the other ones!!! Anyway I would really like to go to Chicago or Michigan, but I don't know if we are sending trips there this year! And I want to go with my friends, hopefully they'll want to go with me. :)
My parents are helping with the fall ministry here, like they'll figure out what the jobs will be, and I think - I'm not sure if this has been okayed - but we are going to have the pastor's bring their cars and vans, and some of the big families bring theirs, and the youth are going to wash, vacuum etc. I think that is a cool job, especially if its hot weather.
Anyway I am soooooooooo busy,I have alot of school - alot more than last year. And then with all my sports, now I'm swimming with Rivi, teaching Andrew's special Olympics and running with Anna, I am soooooooo tired too!! I have to go!!!

Bread Alone!

It took 900 gallons of water to boil it, a crane to life it into a special 8-foot-by-4-foot cooking kettle, and 10 hours to bake it, but Brugger's Bagels finally produced an 868-pound bagel at the New York State Fair on Aug. 27. The company hopes to have the bagel, which includes 660 pounds of flour, 53 pounds of malt, and 12.5 pounds of salt, certified by Guinness World Records as the biggest ever!

Swimming News:

Yesterday I got my swim team letter. I am on the Gold team as before and Steffi Pok -some of you people know her - is on Sliver! I am really excited for this semester to start as we now have morning practices Monday - Friday. Though I am not a morning person, I will make myself get up at 5:00 am to be there at 5:15. (Actually I might have to get up even earlier. :)
I might still be able to do the afternoon practices on Monday, but if they end up having soccer for the high-schoolers, I might do that too. But I'm going to do the Rivi swim meets, and I'm not so excited for that. My whole swimming career I've gotten in the water and started, but now you have to dive off the block! Exciting! Not!!!! So I get to work on dives.
Anyway today I was working on my world view and found this quote that I wanted to post:
The Gospel is not a set of swimming instructions to a drowning person. It is the God-man jumping in and rescuing a drowning person.
