Children’s Sunday, and the Big Unveil

Category Woohoo!

Today was Children’s Sunday at church, and the entire service was by and for the kids. One little girl kept wandering up front and just standing there, clearly pleased with herself, but refusing to sing or participate in any way other than being adorable. I ate her.

Chickadee was an acolyte, and also received a bible along with the rest of the second graders. She was good as gold all morning. Monkey cried because he DIDN’T get a bible, and no amount of pointing out that we own MULTIPLE bibles or that he would receive his very own bible when HE is in second grade would soothe him. It was a tragedy. Until he turned his program into a paper airplane, and then all was right with the world again. Phew.

We had a good day, me and my kiddos. We needed it.

So, hey, would you like to see what I’ve been doing when I haven’t been busy paddling around in the basement? I think it’s time to declare it open for business. Come on over.
