I thought you might like to see Bethany’s shirt.
Funny….that demand hasn’t gotten her anything yet.
VBS is officially half-way over. Two more days of class and then the Family Night on Friday night, at 7:00. The kids are really enjoying it. Every year we have a couple of kids who would rather not be there, but the rest make up for it. Of course, their favorite class is recreation And snowcones.
There’s a boy that’s sweet on Bethany. . They have an age difference of about 15 years, but he’ll grow up eventually. Nathan is flirting with her. Today she walked outside and Nathan was standing there eating a snowcone. He put one hand on his hip and said, “Well, well, well….if it isn’t the girl that tried to pie my friend in the face.” Keep in mind this kid is 5. When the boys were putting their money in the buckets this morning, Nathan ran over and hit Beth, kind of like he was saying, “Take that.” The boys did pull ahead today. They are winning. If the girls can’t pull out a win on the last day, Beth will get the pie in the face. Our pastor, Herb, always saves his pennies all year and puts them in the boys’ bucket. Beth played it up today – when Herb went to put his money in, she fell down at his feet and grabbed his ankles, begging him not to put it in the boys’ bucket. Chris got good pictures.I gave in and gave Nathan money today to put in the boys’ bucket. I couldn’t resist those pleading eyes. Chris was taking pictures today and told Nathan he was a ham. He said, “Does that mean I’m cute?” One of the teachers told Dave that Nathan’s parents give a lot of attention to his 2 older sisters, but not to him. That’s sad.
We don’t take in a huge amount of money and we don’t make anything off of VBS, as some people think we do. Out of 40 kids, the offering will probably be around $150. It helps offset the cost of VBS, which is about $1200. But one little girl told me today that her mom was tired of us trying to steal all their money I wasn’t quite sure what to say.
My hand is still swollen from that wasp sting. It looks like a rubber glove that’s been blown up. I can’t get my ring off. It’s my right hand, and I am right handed, so it presents a few challenges.
Jami, here’s another one of Beth’s t-shirts:
