VBS Day 5

It’s over now. I’m riding in the car on the way to Augusta to see my family. Kids are in back watching a movie with their own headsets on, which makes for a beautifully silent car. No doubt I’m exhausted and glad tomorrow is Saturday, but also I am still so thankful for such a fun week with the kids. […]

VBS Day 4

Wow.  We just finished day four of Vacation Bible School, and I must say it was the best day so far!  I didn’t snap any of my own pictures, but I did steal this one of off Facebook. This crazy man was a special guest, and he did a great job entertaining all of us.  My favorite was the “Drive […]

VBS Day 3!

Well, we have made it over half-way through our Vacation Bible School week, and we are still having fun.  Today was crazy hat and glasses day: The hats came in handy…we didn’t have to fix our hair today at all!  Just stuck it under the hat and left.  The baby bottles are for the offering to support Cobb Pregnancy Center.

VBS Day Two!

We started our morning with some fun hair spray to get ready for “Cotton Candy Hair Day” at VBS.  The kids were sure that they needed some crazy colored hair, and so Josh and I took a trip to Sally’s Beauty Supply last night to get them some.  (I include this detail so that they know one day that their […]

VBS Day One

Today was the first day of Vacation Bible School at my church, and I had such a fun time.  I am teaching Kindergarteners.  Each one was so very sweet.  Tomorrow we get nine more kids because, evidently, ours was the smallest class…which could have played a big role in why I had such a fun time.  🙂 We start out […]

Sweet Molly

My Molly, the second-born child, is quite the character.  She always has been.  I truly love how God made her even if I don’t always know exactly how to best respond to some of her antics.  She is usually full of questions.  I believe she is the most persistent person I’ve ever come across.  She is an amazing little care-giver; […]

Adult Swim is the Devil

I’ve given this a lot of thought, and I’m pretty sure I am on to something.   Adult Swim is the devil.  You are sitting there in the lounge chair, just getting settled in with your Kindle after lathering three full sized kid bodies with sunscreen, pulling out the goggles, rounding up diving rings, positioning everyone’s towels and then you hear the gosh-awful sound of the whistle and those two words that send all your calm into a tailspin….”Adult Swim!!” In reality it should be called something else because RARELY do I see any adults take advantage of the empty pool. Maybe they could holler out, “GO GET YOUR MOM’S AREA SOAKING WET AND EVEN DRIP WATER ON HER KINDLE TIME!” or, “GO ASK YOUR MOM HOW MANY MINUTES TIL YOU CAN SWIM AGAIN TIME!” or, “RUN OVER TO YOUR MOM AND TELL HER HOW HUNGRY YOU ARE TIME!” Yes, that one.  They might as well say, “SNACK TIME!”  I’m more than certain that the snacking industry and the whole concept of “Adult Swim” are absolutely in cahoots.  Seriously, Doritos make a killing solely based on their consumption during the summer months of “Adult Swim.”  Don’t even get me started on Pringles and Barrel Drinks.   Now, I know a kid gets hungry as a result of all that swimming, but they wouldn’t realize they were so hungry if the blasted whistle hadn’t just blown to remind them that their […]
