In July, we continued our summer of fun by going to a San Jose Giants game. Jenny Pozzi got a game ball from one of the Giants players! As usual, we had a fun time enjoying the food and a casual baseball game. After the game, we celebrated Kevin's and Shim's birthdays. Thanks to Jean Miller for the cakes and cookies!
The next week, we held our Pentathlon, a five-event team match. We did a swimming event, where the youth "swam" the fellowship hall on furniture dollies; a fencing event, where youth dueled with pool noodles; a combined riding and shooting event, where youth had to ride their team's horse (pool noodle) and then stop and shoot air soft pistols to knock over cans; and a cross-country running event, where the youth raced around the church solving three puzzles along the way. It was great to see the youth enjoy themselves in a competitive environment.
One Wednesday we also went to Laser Tag, where the sixth graders ganged up on their mentors!
