Recently, our ministry team, 21 OHMS (formerly known as 20 OHMS), held a long-overdue birthday party for Ben S. Poor kid had his birthday celebration dragged out for about a month due to schedule conflicts, illnesses, and a few other reasons that I’ve since forgotten. This was the final necessity to make his birthday celebration complete. I was beginning to wonder if we’d end up celebrating this year’s birthday sometime after next year’s birthday celebration!
Anyway…we had a fun get together and if you’re wondering what the highlight was…well…I’m not sure but we can’t have a birthday party in Mexico without a piñata. With just a bunch of gringos, the action was relatively controlled and the appearance of safety was high on the list of priorities.
Kathryn O. (below) was one of the first to get some whacks. It took me a couple minutes to remember to get my camera and take some photos so I missed the littlest ones. If you look at the guy in the middle of the photo, you can see the reason why we changed our names from 20 OHMS to 21 OHMS. It appears that it will take many more years before the 8 adults will finally outnumber the kiddos. That’s fine with us. We love having so many kids on our team. It makes for some great fun and lots of learning moments together.
I’m not sure why my buddy Brock has the big grin on his face while looking at me with that nice little knot in his hand, but maybe it’s time I consider not calling him “my buddy” anymore. Hmmmm….
