VBS Week

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

It’s almost over now…

The four kids that I have (AnnaBeth is with my parents) have been attending Vacation Bible School this week. This church does a really good VBS program. I’ve been getting up early to get Jeremy to the train before going to the church by 8:30 am. The first two days, I worked registration and the rest of the week, I’m checking in kids as they come. I like coming back in time to watch the closing ceremonies. I have caught kids as they tried to leave their teachers before their parent arrived.

I love how they do a lot of repeating, so the children remember things. Noelle can tell you the theme for everyday this week. It is made fun, but also shown that God’s Word is something serious too. It’s something that can change your life. It’s amazing how the kids really enjoy this week and are extremely eager to come and bring their friends and give offering. Today, we had 160 kids and they gave over $300 in offering!!

Anyway, this week has been fun. Tomorrow is the last day. I’ll probably spend the whole time there, in case I’m needed for anything.

Last Check on Splint

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Yesterday (July 7th for those who read on FB) I went to the physical therapist for the last check on how this splint is doing. He replaced the straps because the other ones were tearing apart and made sure it still fit okay. He said that the Dr will most likely have me keep a smaller splint or a brace on for a while. It won’t be 24/7 like this one, but it will still be needed. He also said he’s unsure of how quickly I’ll be able to start photography again with my regular camera. It could be a few days after this splint is off or it could be a few weeks. I’ll at least have the ability by September though, which makes me happy.

I have a week and a half and I’ll no longer have this big splint on. Yay!
