After I had breakfast, we all left for the hay ride we where singing a few christian songs and telling what the meanings of the words in the songs that we where singing. When we where there I saw the residents and started to cry because miss Rhona, was talking about saying good byes and I do not like saying good byes, so I gave them a hug and started to cry, but I said I will see you next year. So when they left, we went in a pray circle. we prayed to the person to our left, and we wanted to say thoughtful things, its not to impress other people its to say things that you put are words that we are going to say in are hearts and say to them. After the pray circle we went for a walk near the streams in this beautiful world you have created. So when we where walking we found beautiful streams, and lakes, you led us to this amazing stream. We all went in the stream and had a blast! Iit was a lot of fun, thank you so much for your support and planning this great trip.

Yesterday was so amazing it was pretty much unexplainably amazing. First we started on a hay ride with the residents and we saw lots of animals. For example we saw bears, deer, turkey and horses. All of the residents and us kids all seem to have a fantastic time. After the amazing hay ride we went to eat at a really cool park with creeks,waterfalls,and benches to eat lunch. i got to eat with 3 of the residents for lunch and i got to know them even better then i did. it was amazing to go yesterday because usually people don’t get to go out in public with the residents, but yesterday we got to and me and everybody else was really blessed with this opportunity and appreciate Miss Rhonna and Mr.Gary for letting us go with the residents. after eating lunch almost everybody went swimming in the creek. after about 30-45 minutes we had to say goodbye to the residents and it was very hard to say goodbye to everybody. it was very hard to say goodbye to all of the residents because we connected to them and we became best friends with each resident. after saying goodbyes all of us got in a praying circle and we prayed for the person to the left of us and we would pray for them that whenever they get home they won’t forget about the lord or forget about the residents. this week over here has been unexplainably amazing. and even though I won’t be able to come next year, I know i won’t forget about the residents, because they made a impact in my life and on everyone else.
