Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

how much would you pay for a roll of tape? kids are at the funny age slightly above a child and slightly below an adult

there comes a time when we have to let them make decisions on their own and learn some of life's lessons as they do...

one of my girls just spent better part of a week at a camp in new jersey. while there a couple of the gals decided that they NEEDED something from target. they were "car-less" so they decided to ask at the front desk the best way to get to the target just down the street. the lady said..i will just call you a cab. these three girls go. they get into the cab and say target please. (i now know that there was a target 1.3 miles to the north and 4.3 miles to the south). guess which target my kids went too...yep...the one that costs the kids $40.00 ONE WAY!!!!

now i don't know about you but i don't send a lot of money with my kids when they go to these all-inclusive sports camps and apparently neither do the other parents. once they got out of the cab they weren't sure that they were going to have enough cash on them to get back...

to make a long...hysterical story short...they ended up walking to a bakery down the street to ask for help in finding cheaper transportation and ended up finding a cab that would take them back to the hotel for $20.00.

now you all are wondering if she ever bought the tape for her stick...i don't even know for sure but it was one EXPENSIVE roll of tape if she did. live and learn.

i bet she will never get into a cab again without FIRST asking how much it is going to cost her.

i am taking one kid and a friend out to james madison university for a campus tour tuesday...the twins are at this scary place where they need to start thinking about the future and start looking at colleges. pray for us.

thanks for checking in
