Reasons I know I am smack dab in the eye of the hurricane that is a children's ministry summer:
1) From 11:15 - 11:45 this morning I danced the Macarena, the Cupid Shuffle, and the Hoedown Throwdown with over 100 8-and 9-year-olds, plus the senior citizens who were serving them Rice Crispy Treats. It was absolutely hysterical. In a Fellowship Hall, for heaven's sake- such naughty Baptists we are :) It was a real bliss moment.
Silly Band. It glows in the dark and is in the shape of a turtle. Pretty much every kid at Vacation Bible School has 20, 50, 100 of these things on (which is probably why schools are banning them as a distraction).
Another $600 something came in today at the VBS change drive for TeacHaiti. We're up to over $1,900 now- that's over 5 kids fully sponsored for a year. Amazing. One more day!
