So sorry for my absence. Three words... Vacation Bible School. It's killing me. Ha.
I am so tired tonight that I can't even think straight. But the kids are having fun and that's what matters, right? Only two more days....
I was with my group when I looked up and saw the pre-school group--led by Jillian--walking by. She is the leader of five kids, three of whom are her siblings. I thought it was so cute how they are all hanging on to a little rope as they go from activity to activity.
In other news...
The other night, Jeff was reading a devotional to the kids after dinner. Normally, they all struggle to sit still and listen for 3 minutes, but this particular evening they were especially restless. Finally, outright giggles and laughter erupted. I started to scold them when someone alerted me to the fact that SaraGrace had her arm up in the air. (For some context, I sit next to Jeff and his back is to a wall. I don't see the wall unless I turn my head sideways.)
I said something to the effect of..."What's the big deal about her having her arm up in the air? And SaraGrace, please put your arm down. Why is it up in the air anyway?"
More smothered giggles and finally she said softly,
"I'm making animals."
I turned and saw this:
Who could possibly see that and not laugh? Needless to say...I joined the crowd.
