Pi Gamma Giant Slayers

We had a great weekend with our teens and am so thankful at the same time that the craziness is over! 3 weeks of planning and preparations equals much needed sleep and a huge mountain of laundry! Our team chose to do a theme somewhat geared around Jack n’ the beanstalk! We just left out Jack and the magic beans. We decided we would build a castle in the clouds with a gigantic beanstalk. Our team motto is “Overcoming my giant!” (that giant being sin). And our verse is I John 4:4 b …Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world!

While it was weird not being red or screaming go Nu Delta, I think we have officially crossed over and are used to the Green team! WE love our kids and are looking forward to a great year with each of them! Might I mention we also have 2 amazing college assistants!!!

Here are a few pictures of our booth!!
