Tonight was recognition night for the 8-11 year old girls at my church. I am the co-leader and every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, we have activities. The idea is to prepare the girls to be righteous young women in our church. It's fun, we do a lot of cool little things.
Anyway, tonight we asked the girls to bring something that showed who they were and asked them to prepare a short presentation (basically telling us what they brought). Kind of like a big show and tell. Let me tell you, these girls are amazing! We had several play instruments (piano, recorder, violin, and clarinet) and several show off some other talents (drawing, gymnastics, etc.) I am just in awe at the broad range of talents we have! And the desire to show them off...it's not something I would have ever been happy to do (play my violin in front of people) but they all did it with a smile on their face and just wowed me.
The coolest one was one of our 8 year olds. She is so quiet, soft spoken, and can break 2 boards in half with her fist. She has a trophy that is taller than me (and I'm 6 feet!) and a whole bunch of metals from breaking boards. I have learned so much about these girls I'm teaching. They are so incredible.
In other news, we only have a few days left before we leave and things are not getting done. It's mostly my fault they are not getting done, only because I hate dragging all 3 kids out to run errands so I wait till Juice gets home. But then I'm too tired to do anything that nothing gets done. I've got to buckle down and do several things and errands tomorrow, 3 kids or not. Wish me luck.
Speaking of kids, Professor is crying so I'm off!
PS- Thanks to my MIL who sent me a wonderful book on motherhood. It had me in tears all afternoon.
