This has been a strange week so far. First, everyone we know is sick with some strange upper-respiratory/sinus bug. Some of the school districts have closed completely do to lack of staff. Others are reporting up to 50% of the students are absent. Nestina was supposed to have a couple friends over for the weekend, but they are all sick. Debbie has been fighting this bug for several days. So far Nestina and I have been spared, but how long that will continue is in question.

We had a small group for youth group Wednesday night (see above) and none of the leaders were feeling particularly ambitious, so we just sat around and talked. One of the other leaders brought in pictures from the last youth mission trip to Peru, so that kept everyone occupied. I got to talk to the Jr. High teens, which I rarely get to do, so it was a good thing.

Yesterday, we went to the last regular season volleyball game at the high school. Kalkaska lost the best-of-five 3-1. The scores were as close as they can be in volleyball: the final score for two of the games was 24-26. The other team was a one-trick pony, but it was one heck of a trick. The Kalkaska ladies just couldn't shut down Charlevoix's two big spikers. It was a lot of fun, and I had a chance to talk to several people I hadn't seen in some time.

Tonight will probably just end up being a veg party as all the plans fell apart. And I need to get going so I can pick up Nestina from school.
