The England Journal: Monday 17 October

Last night didn’t end up very easy. After Kinsey went down, she didn’t fall asleep until 1:30am, probably because she fell asleep at 6pm at church and woke up at 8. I’m afraid her body is still adapting to England time. She also woke up with a slight fever, but we gave her some Tylenol and she was fine of the rest of the day.

This was also the first day of the HBC, and it went very well. We had 18 kids and they all had a blast. I noticed one girl that hadn’t been at church, so that was nice. The kids did really well and we really liked talking to them, singing songs like C-O-C-O-N-U-T (just don’t reverse the song…) and the Hippo song and telling the story of Noah.

After the HBC, we had lunch until 1:30, then had afternoon tea with some of the older members of the congregation (and with all the eating today, I understood what the Hobbits were talking about with “Elevensies” and “Second Breakfast”). We also did a trivia game with them and it was a lot of fun. From 4 to 5:30, I wandered around Loughborough for a bit looking for an electrical travel adapter and a couple of other things. I came back for dinner and then went to Mark Hill’s house for some guys’ time together with a few of the young adults. We laughed a lot and told some jokes.

I came back to Norman and Brenda’s house where Sheryl put Kinsey down and then we listened to Norman tell more stories. He quite literally has a million of them, and they’re all hysterical.

Tomorrow for more HBC.

Tuesday 18 October
