bus trips. do you remember anxiously waiting for them to post those four bus lists? i remember crossing my fingers that i would "know" at least one person on my bus. and i remember everyone rushing to the lists in the cafeteria when they would be posted, and immediately start making plans with who you would sit with...yaddah yaddah. and when you didn't get on the bus with all your other friends? the world ended. ok, not really...but still.
i will never forget this bus ride, and i giggle when i look at this picture with the scharfs and humphries. please tell me you remember sister humphries making us sing "sarasponda" on the bus. perfection.
and please tell me you remember when brother scharfs told us our next stop was going to be viagra falls. and he was serious.
trip to kirtland. priceless. i will never forget the time we had in the temple that evening, and walking outside into the rain to the rest of our group singing hymns. with a slight breeze, the temple was keeping the rain from hitting us. i remember being so impressed when someone pointed out that the temple shields us on a daily basis from the storms of the world, just as it was shielding us from the rain that night.
and i will never forget our group standing in all four corners of the temple singing The Spirit of God. unforgettable.
I am CRAVING my scrapbook right now to remember all of the other trips we took and places we got to go. the question is....if you could NOT go on one of those trips, which one would you choose. what was that?? Hannibal, MO? good answer. tom sawyers white picket fence and creepy houses to walk through. and please don't forget the freezing ferry ride that lasted 9 hours. okay, that's an exageration. i would have much rather stuck with church sites...
the trips were long. we spent countless hours on those buses, but there was something fun and exciting about it...packing up and going to see new things. but man alive did i love coming home. the jsa was home. and i loved it.
random thought. i just forgot where we did laundry. why can't i remember it?? was it in the bathrooms? and please never forget the lines for the showers. just kidding. please forget.
