Met my pastor for lunch this morning and we sat there for THREE HOURS. Oops? Some of it was productive but it was mostly just talking. And I have two more meetings this week about church stuff. Which is great, and they're the only things on my calendar this week until the birthday parties this weekend, but I'm more of an ideas person or a put-me-to-work person. The actual implementation needs to be done by someone else, haha.

That being said, I'm open to any and all suggestions for fundraising! In addition to our regular fundraising (for youth activities and for sending kids to camp each summer), we're trying to save up to send all the kids to International Youth Conference in the summer of 2018. Dava is estimating about $1200 per kid, but I'm thinking she's underestimating. Either way, it's a lot of money - we currently have 9 kids in our youth group (regularly - we have others that come in and out) and I think 7 in the hispanic ministry (they're a separate ministry but use our church, and while we do Wednesday night bible study together, our youth groups are actually separate, but they will go to IYC with us) so that's a lot of money. I don't think a bake sale and some Wendy's bucks are gonna cut it, haha.

Also, school starts in two weeks, and I'm already broke. Just thinking about all the start-of-year expenses is making me break out in hives. But I shouldn't complain because I only have a few more years of this!
