We start this evening one of the highlights of my year!!  VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL!! 

Where:  Living Stones Church (718 E. Donmoyer Ave. South Bend, IN 46614)

Time:  6:00 Р8:30 p.m.

Who: 4 year olds to 5th graders

Cost:  FREE Рplus a free t-shirt (which is awesome)

Kelly, my wife, who leads the kids in all of the songs was practicing Saturday night.¬† I looked over at her and she was crying.¬† I asked what was wrong.¬† She said she was just picturing all of those little faces singing these songs.¬† It is the most precious thing in the world…heart-melting!¬† We’re in for a great week!

I’m back!!¬† My first week of church camp in at least a decade!!¬† I loved it!!¬† I seriously had a blast!¬† I went with my oldest son, Isaac,¬†hoping to help usher him into a church camp experience.¬†¬†I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed it.¬† 5th & 6th graders are awesome.¬†¬†They are old enough to have¬†serious conversations and interact well but not old¬†enough to be overly¬†concerned with being “cool.”¬† ¬†

I have taken the Myers-Briggs Personality test indicator several times (ESTJin case anyone is curious).¬† One of the questions on the test is the one that asks whether being with a lot of people gives you energy or if it consumes energy from you.¬† With few exceptions I always get energy from groups, but I have found the ultimate demographic for me in regards to energy and excitement….5th & 6th graders.¬† I’m sure every camper and faculty member thought I needed a good dose of hyper-activity drugs.¬† Gordie Fox and his “Dean Team” – Jen & Aaron Johnson, Scott McNeely, and the entire faculty was awesome.¬† I miss those kids already.¬† Great week!¬† I plan on returning next year!¬†
