Dad’s New Workout

Just when I thought I had my kids bus schedule all figured out it shows up early. Here I thought I’d have time for quiet stroll. (This was before the deep freeze set in.)

[picapp align=”left” wrap=”false” link=”term=school+buses&iid=1965470″ src=”5/0/c/c/50.jpg?adImageId=8472822&imageId=1965470″ width=”234″ height=”156″ /]

Anyway, I’m bopping along when I get this frantic call from my daughter telling me they’re already at the bus stop and won’t let them off because of the kindergartner who’s with us. They won’t release a 5 year old until there’s an adult present. And since he’s one of the kids we baby sit I’m supposed to be the adult at the bus stop.

Yes, that would be the bus waiting at the corner for me, that’s early, while I’m still several blocks away.

Oh SNAP!

Well, it wasn’t my old 6 minute mile form and it sure wasn’t poetry in motion. (More like Moe Curly and whatiz name motion) But at least I can still run without killing myself if the need arises.

But from now on I get there early because I’m not sure how many of those workouts I can handle!

A Godsend on Sunday

At last!

They gave me a helper for my Sunday School class. She was able to help keep me organized and on track. With her help I remembered to pass out all the right materials and even give out REWARD CANDY!

There’s always something I forget to do.  If it isn’t the take home paper it’s the reward candy, if it isn’t the prayer card it’s the monthly bible verse (TOO MUCH STUFF) but with my helper it all got done.

Susan (not her real name) is far more mature than your average 7th grader.  She’s a perfect example of why home schooling is the way to go for those who can manage it.  I’d recommend it to any couple just starting out to aim for that ideal.  Because with more people like Susan around the world is a much better place!  🙂

Real Hope!

There’s real hope after all folks.

A new generation is rising up full of faith and full of worship and love for their creator.

All over the world in churches big and small people are dedicated to teaching, mentoring and disciplining the next generation for Christ.

This is where our new pastors, evangelists missionaries and all sorts of great leaders will be coming from.

This song is a favorite of mine. It’s the Hill song Kids with “Super Strong God!”

When I see all the kids at my church Grace North really worshiping God like the children in this video it brings tears to my eyes.

Chances are, the same thing happens to you.  🙂

You say you missed The Holiday Train and the big parade in Schenectady?

From CS9 here are several ways you can still give your family a fun outing for the Christmas season.
