cars, boats, sunburns + frappuccinos = carwash

this past saturday we had a carwash at chick-fil-a as a fundraiser for our India trip.  several of us teens helped, and lots of parents and adults came and helped too. thanks guys!

we had fun spraying each other accidentally *cough* and, not so fun, getting sunburned.  next time i will wear sunscreen.

all in all, we washed 68 cars [including one really muddy truck] and one boat.

this weekend will be another fundraiser, this time a garage sale, for which we have to get up even earlier.  so pray for us!

…and if you want more information about our India trip, leave a comment and i will email you.


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.

^ kameron made this sign so that when he’s a homeless person he can raise money
