Staying out of trouble

I'm keeping myself more than busy. We're coming up on the launch of Children's Ministry, so I'm getting everything ready to go. Had a meeting on Monday night with a few parents and I'm in the process of getting the curriculum all picked out. Now it's finding some volunteers and getting everything ready to go for September!

If there's one thing I've noticed about Children's Curriculumn it is that they don't just want you to buy the material, they want you to buy the superflous stuff all around it too. It's mildly annoying. I want the framework to build the building, not the modular design with addons. But that's just personal preference!

Lesson of the day: People are important, talk to them.

I just got a bunch of Curriculum samplers in today, and I find it intriguing how many of them focus on how little work you need to do. Perhaps it's just me, but I want to actually have to get down and get dirty with the things I'm teaching the kids. I want to have to do prep work and have lots of options in how to manipulate it. I guess I'm looking for the framework, not the building.

I'll keep on looking, and I'll be meeting with different volunteers this week to get their opinion on the whole thing as well.

In other news... the Golf is coming along nicely, and should be done late this week/early next week. It'll be nice to have a car again!

Jordan is here, and it's super nice to have her around and just get to interact in a 'normal' way with friends. I'm looking forward to the next few weeks!
