Tour Day 14 9-18-12

We left our hotel this morning at about 11:05 am for hot chocolate at Tim Horton's. It was delicious. Again. Unfortunately I didn't snap any pictures til later, when we got back to our hotel after 10 pm. Sorry. My fault entirely for being neglectful. I can't do that again. -.- 


Anyways, at our first school, Calvary Christian, in St. Catherine's, Ontario, from 11:45 to 3:45 Dad and Amanda did their talk and Dad did a short writing workshop. We sold a pretty fair amount of books and packed up in a hurry to get to the Heritage Christian Bookstore a few blocks down. We stayed 15 minutes later than we were supposed to due to some kids not having money and they needed their parents to pay when they picked them up after school. 


At the bookstore Dad and Amanda signed books from 3:50 to 5, then we took a break for dinner. From 7 to 9 Dad spoke to a group of librarians for the store and signed books. The bookstore owner was awesomely generous. He gave me the book I'd been reading and wanting to buy and a Kerusso shirt I'd been eyeing and asked how much it was. Now we're at our hotel redoing inventory of the boxes we used today.



 Inventory!

 Scotch tape. Everyone loves Scotch tape.




Some postcards I picked up and my new book. ^-^




Me in my new shirt with my new book, looking a bit tired and pensive

  1. I like the shirt, but you’re bending the spine of your book! It won't look brand new if you keep reading it like that and it won't last very long! Just seeing all those books makes me shiver with excitement.

    1. Haha! Thanks. :P I know, I'm not very gentle with my books. They look well loved after one reading. v.v It's still in brand-new condition, though. :)

  2. Can I just say that I love that shirt? I need to find it somewhere around here . . .
    Your book looks cool; I'll have to look it up. Jerry B. Jenkins is cool.

  3. Awesome shirt! I think I have one from Kerusso too... It says, "I am to die for. Just ask Jesus."
    I've also seen one that says, in the font from the Twilight movies, "Jesus is the Light."

  4. I've seen one of those as well. In the text of the COD video games, it has the words, "Called to Duty." It also has the verse, "We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments." It's 2 Corinthians 10:4, but the shirt had a different translation.
