The first day of conferences that is. It was nerve-wracking at first, chaotic in the middle, and exhausting at the end, but...I love it! We had 18 kids tonight and it was a lot of fun. First of all, we did the intro skit at dinner for all the guests which went really well. We sang Christmas Carols, Cannon Beach Style of course, and then each age group had a dance and it looked great! We practiced a lot so it was nice to see it pay off so well. In between the games, singing, learning names, and coloring, I was able to pause for a couple minutes and look at all of them and just smile. I am excited to get to know them all better this week.
Okay I need to go to bed. Running tomorrow morning after ditching it for two days and then have a full day with the kiddos!
Prayer Request--that I don't get sick. My nose is a little stuffy and the other girl leader in my group has been sick. I am taking stuff to prevent it.
