I've been eating, breathing and sleeping Vacation Bible School this week. It's the third year in a row that I've headed it up, and this has been by far the smoothest year. I have a great staff of volunteers, and 155 kids who are having a ball. It's fun to do, but is a LOT of work, and I am looking forward to it ending tomorrow. Granted, next week I dive into spending all day teaching at a day camp, which will make for longer days, but at least I will get paid for that. And I'm not in charge. Oh glorious, glorious not being in charge.
So that's why I haven't been around to visit your blogs much this week. I've been ironing logos onto T-shirts, creating daily newsletters, running rehearsals for the dramas, practicing the motions for the songs...
If you send your kids to VBS this year, tell the director, and all the volunteer staff, how much you appreciate their work. Even better, offer to help!
Hopefully next week will be a bit calmer around here.
And thank you for your oh so sweet and encouraging comments on my bloggy birthday post. I could not have received any better presents. Thanks.
(oh yeah... and Obama? Woo-hoo! there was celebrating around the Maypole Tuesday night! and then I went back to VBS stuff...)
