Alert….Alert….Alert….Life is changing in the Steen house. 
As if we didn’t already think Chelsey Duke was the sweetest
friend in the world for Chip to have, now he’s gone and asked
her to be his girlfriend.

  This was the best I could do of a photo of the two of them
together.  I’ll work on a real one in the week ahead.  She’s
just precious, and we’ve thought she’s been part of the “movie
night” group, so we’ve already gotten to know her.  It’s just
a wonderful bunch of teenagers, truly.  Now, if she can just
keep Chip Steen focused on making good grades!

Youth Group tonight was AWESOME!  I forgot to take my
camera, can you believe it?  So, I had to use a disposable camera,
which I will take and have pictures made from tomorrow.  I’ll post those soon.  The most amazing
thing was that one of the other youth leaders, my dear friend Bill, asked all of the youth to gather
around and pray for my head.  He didn’t ask for prayers for my brain or anything, just for my pain
and for what the doctors will do this week.  It really was the most wonderful thing!  I love being
with that group, and that just made it so much nicer!!

Have a great Monday–see you soon.

Oh, and to Beth, Julia Grace, Elizabeth, and Meghan….I looked for you,
but I couldn’t find you.  My heart was so full for you, and I’ll see you Tuesday. xoxo

    Hey Mrs. Steen that idea you had about that project sounded interesting,i’ll need some more information though,and i was also wondering if it would take 100 hours worth of planning and work to do it.(100 hours as in, if one kid does 2 hrs of work and 50 kids do the same that would be 100 hrs) but yes please give more info, because i’m desperate for a project, and i need to be sure that its not on private property because like you said liabilty.So thank you for the response and please tell me more= )
