VBS begins tomorrow at our church, and our two oldest boys are in the plays this year. The theme for our VBS this time is the life of the apostle Paul, and there are five plays, one each day from Monday through Friday. Our boys are in all of them, playing a different character each day. I am teaching a kindergarten class. The boys had to stay at church all day last Sunday to work on the plays, then also be there this past Friday evening, and yesterday afternoon. Each day this week they’ll have to stay for a few hours after VBS to practice for the next day’s play. So in a bit I will need to go make their lunch to take with them tomorrow so they can eat between VBS and practice. They’re very excited, this is their first year of being in the play. I forgot to get pennies for the boys for the penny march each day, so I still need to do that.
Next weekend will be a graduation open house for our niece Annie, so there’s a lot going on, and I need to fit a lot into the time we have this week. I need to get all four boys and my husband in for hair cuts, find time for getting laundry done before the weekend, work on the house that needs straightening, keep everyone fed, and get in our piano practice, too! We are continuing our piano lessons through the summer. Our teacher says I’m actually doing very well, which was nice to hear, since I really didn’t think I was. I’m hoping to be able to play a hymn well enough to play for evening offering soon.
I’ve lost about 9 or 10 of the 15 to 20 pounds I’m supposed to lose by my scheduling appointment foe my surgery, so I think I’m doing well there, the appointment is for August 13th.
