MENTAL STATUS: "Exhausted". I worked really hard this week for my church's Vacation Bible School, but I'm happy with how it all turned out.

Well... since I'm writing this post it can only lead me to believe that I somehow survived teaching Bible school to a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds.
Believe me, it wasn't easy. I felt like playing that Gloria Gaynor song, "I will survive" all week as I drove to church. (just half kidding. They were pretty good kids)

My hats off to everyone who worked at our church for all the kids (we had pre-K up to sixth grade). If I worked hard this week, it was only because I saw everyone else giving 110% of their time and energy to serve.

It was fun, but now I must finish judging a writing contest and finish my own manuscript, because I've neglected them for far too long.


what happened with you while I was gone all week?

I give honor to everyone who teaches children's church or vacation bible school. Back in the day I taught five-year-olds for a few months, and couldn't handle it! I switched to the nursey because for me changing diapers and mopping spit-up is better than dealing with tenacious kindergarteners!

The only thing in the writing world I know about worth celebrating is Tess Gerritsen's return to the Blogosphere. Her blog was one of the best out there.

Have a great weekend! You probably need some rest ...

Bless you for teacing VBS. I taught for several years plus Sunday school and I know how hard it is. The kids were full of energy and I found myself praying a lot. LOL I realized that I hadn't made a mistake, after all, teaching high school students instead of elementary in public school. :)
