Week One of Backyard Bible Clubs is over! We had 35-40 kids every day (except Friday, when a bunch of them went away for the weekend or had swim meets.) It was a little chaotic the whole week, but we survived! We didn’t see any salvation decisions this week, but we had some unchurched kids that were at least exposed to the Gospel. I hope we planted some seeds!
Our theme was a safari theme, called Kingdom of the Son. (It’s a VBS curriculum by GospelLight.) It was all about the Lord’s Prayer. I think it went pretty well, but I also feel like I was running around like crazy all week trying to make it happen, so I didn’t get much of a chance to just sit back and listen to the Bible stories and lessons.
Anyway, we survived! I was (and still am a little bit) exhausted! It was a rough week for me and the kids – very tiring for all three of us. And housework went to the wayside last week, so we’re trying to catch up now. Laundry and dishes – fun!
Hope everyone is doing well. Glad to hear that Mom and Dad Rumley, Zach, and Elyse are home safely from their trip to Georgia. Oh, and by the way, Emily’s wedding is in LESS THAN 9 WEEKS! WHOA! Are you ready, Em?
P.S. I’m in the process of getting pictures developed (FOUR ROLLS!), so more pictures to come…SOON!
Yes, I did want to join the Manton Motorcycle gang after being able to drive that thing down the road at 65mph! It was awesome. Lacey will make sure that I don’t join the gang, at least for the time being.
I never imagined being a biker, but 60mpg could convert anyone with a 25 minute drive to work. For the record, Lacey’s Dad bought one first and has been riding them all his life, then Karl bought one.
Grace did get to ride and we will post some fun pictures of that once they are developed / scanned. She was scared at first, but got used to it.
Alonna has started a blog, and we updated our list of blog links over in the sidebar to include all the family blogs (I think). –>
Bed is calling…later,
