carwash

amy came home this weekend with kameron and casey  to do a carwash to raise money for their second years at the honor academy.  at the beginning it was rainy, but at 11 (we got there at 8) the storm was cleared up and we started getting business.  we washed 30 cars in all, and raised way more money than we expected!  praise god.
