Why, yes, I CAN walk on water

Today at VBS we did the story about Peter stepping out of the boat and walking on water when Jesus told him to. That is, until he stopped focusing on Jesus and started to get scared and then he sank. He cried out to Jesus to save him and Jesus lifted him back out of the water. So today I had the kids walk on water as a demonstration.


We didn't actually walk on plain old water but we walked across a "non-Newtonian fluid." I'd tell you what it's made of, but then I'd have to kill you. It's top secret Bible Blast scientist information. But if you've ever made ooblik, you already know. As long as we kept moving we stayed on the surface but the minute we stopped walking we'd sink. Man, that was SO MUCH FUN!!! Messy, but fun.

If you attend Smyrna First Baptist, please give Mr. Henley some extra love this week because he had a HUGE mess to clean up after today's lesson.

And for those of you who asked, Seven's head is much better today. When my mom saw it she was surprised that I didn't take him to get stitches. Um, no, I took him to Chili's to get chicken crispers instead because that's what all Mother of the Year candidates would do.

Oh, and Dan thought I looked so cute in my scientist outfit that he took a picture of me before I left today:

Very nerdy huh? I'm too sexy for my lab coat, yeah baby.

Teble, is there anything on earth that makes you look nerdy? Looks great and I think the kids had so much fun.
