We were glad to be done with the year, as it does get long, but everyone felt proud of their accomplishments. Mr. B and Mr. G passed their handbooks by the skin of their teeth and I worked with the most wonderful kids, parents and team of leaders all year. A lot of people wonder why we make kids memorize Scripture, but I'll tell you what I told a few leaders in a meeting a few weeks ago:
Our kids are sponges and they will absorb everything we put into them. And you can bet your kid is gonna get squeezed. When they get squeezed, what will come out of them? What will pour out when the pressure's on? I'm filling mine with God's word, faith, and a crap-ton of Minecraft videos I let them watch on YouTube. It doesn't end with memorizing the right words, we have to put them into play, but knowing them by heart's a solid starting point.
What's a pan full of birthday brownies without SPRINKLES? Mr. G is celebrating his "half-birthday" today, which really boils down to he gets to bring a treat and wear a sticker on his shirt. It's the little things, people.
Speaking of little, my seedlings are looking pretty peaked, aren't they? I took them outside the other day and they were blown FLAT by the wind. I really thought some fresh air would cheer them up.
Well, this is no small thing. We got a NEW COUCH and CHAIR today!
You know what that means, right? It means now I'll want new tables to go with them ... because our tables look pretty old and beat up next to this new stuff. I think "distressed" is the term one uses when their kids have beaten dents and divots in the surface of all the wood in one's house, right? For the furniture, I mean, not me.
Spill it, reader. One little thing that made your day. Sprinkles? Scripture? Seedlings? Sofa? Soap opera? Slippers? I kid--it doesn't have to start with "s."
