A few weekends ago, more than twenty Cedar Park juniors braved the weather to meet at Bob’s Corn Maze for their annual autumn bonding event. Little did they know they’d be caught up in a maze …as well as the “Storm of the Globe” as quoted by the weather man on the car radio! Nevertheless, these students-turned-friends had tons of fun exploring the maze in the dark, and survived rain, wind, and puddles that went up to their ankles! Memories were made in the barn as they purchased and snacked on kettle corn, on the hayride down to the maze itself, huddled in the darkness of the maze surrounded by whipping cornstalks, and around the bonfire that marked the half-way point.
Most of us made it out of the winding and windy labyrinth alive…only to face slippery grassy hills and potholes of mud which left a few of our cars trapped. Coming together, students helped each other onto the roads. After we had left, we learned that a tree had fallen and crashed down on the barn, but nothing was damaged and no one was hurt. The price we pay for friendship! Yet, as we all know – friendships made in difficulties are friendships that lasts forever!
Regardless of all the adventures, it was deliciously fun and definitely a memory to take with these friends throughout their journey of growth! All’s well that ends well and God bless Bob’s Corn Maze!”
