I've been at my little country church's Vacation Bible School (VBS for short) this past week!!! In the past ten or eleven or twelve years that I've been going, I've always been in the programs, from a student's perspective... but this year... the grade eights were taken from the program to look after little, annoying, funny, children as group leaders.
I was leading a group with my friend Amanda and we were the GREEN GROUP!!!! We had grades 3, 4, 5 and the names of the kids were Makayla, Michaela, Duane, Logan, Olivia, Sarah, Jonathan, Leelind and Matthew. And weren't they fun? We were learning to Listen Up! for God's messages!! We were the Slowpoke Messengers (our own group name, that we made ourselves, due to our stuffed tortoise mascot Slowpoke) and our mascots were the aforesaid Slowpoke and Big Eyes the stuffed frog!! And we ALMOST had a live mascot, but Amanda was carrying it (a live frog) and she dropped it and squished it by accident. Within about five minutes, the entire bible school knew that the Green Group had killed their live mascot!!!
It was a very spiritually enriching week, even for me, the old teenager...
I've had so much fun with friends from EVERYWHERE that I think I've talked myself out!!
Well, I'd better sign out now,
Love, and Blessings,
P.S. I don't know if you're like this or not, but writing ideas keep popping up EVERYWHERE for me! I started a whole new story because of random ideas!!!
