I have been so crazy busy I've hardly had time to do my normal, everyday things, much less blog. I thought I'd tell you all that I'm not going to be able to blog a whole lot here, because I'm headed for Nashville on Friday, helping out with Vacation Church School this week, and Paul's parents will be here tomorrow to stay with the kids while we're in Nashville. I wrote something yesterday, and blogger said it posted but it didn't. :-(
But I have to tell you all a funny story about what happened today. As I said, I've been helping out with VCS. On Monday and Tuesday I helped with the preschool class (which meant I got some quality time with Christina's Pavlos). It's been a lot of fun, but my original commitment to VCS was helping the kids make prosphora, communion bread. We started that today, with the preschool kids, and tomorrow the older kids will make prosphora. So, I was there early this morning getting everything ready for the kids to make prosphora. Everything was set out: bowls, spoons, yeast, salt, flour. One of the moms came over and said that her son was so excited that he was going to be able to make the bread that, in our church, would become the body of Christ. I went back in the kitchen to get something else, and when I came back out, her son was poking his finger in the yeast. I went over and told him that it was for later, when we made prosphora. He said to me, excitedly, "I'm going to make Jesus!" I couldn't help but laugh, and I told him that he sure was.
When Paul came home tonight, I told him the story, but he'd already heard it. ;-)
My kids have been having a lot of fun with VCS, too. Zac is a participant, and Hibi is too old to participate in the receiving end, but she is a group leader. From everything I'm hearing, she's doing a great job with it, and really enjoying it! Zac has been staying late every day, to play with the kids whose moms stay late and the neighbor parishioner kids. Both Zac and Hibi have been involved in the skits, which are really impressive! I've been amazed at what they can put together in just an hour or so.
I won't post again until after we return from Nashville....and after Nashville we're heading to the coast with Paul's parents for a couple of days. I'll see you when I see you!
