Amazing Race

Our Sunday school class puts on an "Amazing Race" each year in the spring. We have participated the last three years. The first year we won. The second year we came in second and this year we came in 9th or 10th so we are really going down hill! :) Physical tasks you can give to us all day long we are up for that...make us memorize Shakespeare and quote...well we pretty much suck at that! I will give John credit, he is the one who finally got it down and said it. We caught back up with everyone and actually arrived towards the front at one of the legs only to leave last after coming to grips with the fact that we know nothing much about playing cards. 

In spite of those frustrating moments we had a total blast!

And now, to explain our team shirts...a few years back our class got together for a "newlywed game". One of the questions was what your song was. John has yet to live down his answer that matched my answer, which we always listened to or maybe more like kissed to when we were dating...The Power of Love by Celine Dion. It has been a running joke and when they showed the video last year of the Amazing Race there was lot's of peppy music but each time we were shown it went to Celine we went with it...and i'm pretty sure he won't ever live down wearing that t-shirt. Fun times for sure! I love our class, we have so much fun!

We will be back next year with a fury ready to take down some competition! In the mean time i am going to go read some stinkin Shakespeare!
