No really. Okay, it was actually little red dot stickers. And it was actually yesterday. But yesterday I had a killer migraine and I was too busy moaning and holding an ice pack on my head to blog. Today I didn't give anybody leprosy but I did make some kids blind. But, hey, I spread mud on their faces and healed them afterword so cut me some slack.
Really it was oatmeal, which I cooked in extremely large quantities at home before going to church this morning. I made about one hundred times more oatmeal than we needed, but that's okay. Today's theme was "God gives us the power to help others," and we talked about Jesus giving the blind man sight. I got to be a nerdy scientist complete with a lab coat, taped-up glasses, pigtails, and a fake lab ID. We blindfolded the kids and made them walk around to get the feeling of being blind. Then I told them about Jesus scooping up some dirt, spitting in it, and putting it on the blind beggar's eyes to heal him. I totally had those kids convinced that I was rubbing Teble-spit-and-dirt in their eyes. Too much fun!
Yesterday's theme was thankfulness and we did the lesson about Jesus healing the ten lepers and only one of them came back to thank him. Seven went to a different group for the skit so he didn't get to see Mommy as a scientist but he totally GOT the lesson. When he came home he told me all about it and said, "Mommy, I want to be like the ONE, not like those NINE."
Sigh. I love vacation bible school.
