I had mixed emotions about bible school this summer because it was the first year for all of my children to be in youth. I was always so excited about my kids getting to the age for bible school and have enjoyed having them there every summer so much. It felt so strange and a bit sad to have no children in bible school classes. Now that they are in youth, they will be helping the teachers in whatever classes need youth workers. Madison helped me this year with one of the kindergarten classes. My niece, Kinley, came to stay the week with us so she could help as well. As always, I enjoyed decorating and preparing for the class as much as I did teaching and helping in the class. The theme was New York and, while I didn't really look forward to this theme, we did pull together an amazing looking room! We had a nice sized class with some really sweet kids to teach. Madison and Kinley had a great time, even though we were all exhausted by the end of the week. It's always such a busy, time-consuming experience, but we always look back on it glad that we were a part of it all!
