College For a Weekend at Liberty!!

A few weekends ago, Matt and I took 5 teenage boys from our Youth group down to Liberty University for them to experience college. This was our 2nd time doing this and each time, we have a BLAST! Mom and Dad kept the girls for us, so they had a GREAT weekend too!!! Here are a few pictures from our weekend as college students again....

Above, Matt and the boys are sitting ready for Convocation, which meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! Below, is a shot of the ENTIRE Convocation in the Vines Center!!

Singing songs of Worship in this environment ALWAYS gives me the chills!!! It is so neat and moving!!!

While the boys were sitting in on some college classes, Matt and I "skipped class" and visited our park...where we had our first kiss and where we proposed to me!! We have made so many special memories here that it was great to walk down this path again.

Here are a few shots of the campus. Above is the new outdoor year round ski lodge and slopes!

Here is the group! Guys, it was a pleasure having you all with us. We hope that as you decide where to go to college, you will seek God's will for you!

(PS: My cousin, Kevin, came down with us too...he is the first one on the left. Kevin, it was great hanging out!!!)

Seems like it was a great trip! I love getting teens connected with Christian schools!

Liberty certainly does look huge, just as Joy said!
Very nice pictures that you shared. But my favorite one is that on the bottom....hello, to Kevin! I'm thrilled that you were able to spend time together.
Love all of you,
