Then PAX switched to Flutter Kicks and performed Flutter Kicks until next “Rolling”. Then PAX switched back to Gas Pumps until “Rolling” ended. Then PAX switched to LBCs. Rinsed and repeated until song ended.
COT / BOM: QIC shared something that has been on his mind lately. Expectation and approval. Everyone has their own expectations of how things should go. How their kids should behave, how clean their house should be, how their friends view them, how they view Christ, etc. These things stem from wanting approval. Wanting to be confirmed. QIC shared his expectation of perfectionism in everything that he does and explained that sometimes we expect too much of ourselves in order to please others or to fit a false reality. Instead, we should do our best with what we have, the time we have, the people we have around us and trust in the Lord.
MOLESKIN: PAX tested a potential AO (Tom Lee Park) and enjoyed a dense gloom on the Mississippi River. Lesson learned: Battle ropes are heavy when saturated.
