What a Fun Morning

Route 316

Our church, Grace Lutheran, is a small "new" church in town with limited volunteers so when we hold Vacation Bible School it is BIG, One Day event (and just half a day at that).

The theme this year, Route 315, is a take-off of Route 66 but of course it's Route John 3:16. Just like last year Timmothy and I volunteered to be the food and snack masters.

The church was very well decorated (hard to do when we are in a complete remodel of the church building, inside and out) with all the hallways made out to look like highways with signs and scenery.

Everyone had a great time.

Timmothy and I got to be the first ones to every use the new, almost completed, kitchen (during the remodel). I wanted to note that a couple of things from my RE career came in very handy. For open houses I had purchased a commercial popcorn machine and a commercial hot dog cooker that "rolls" 18 hot dogs at a time. Both were used and every hot dog and kernel of pop corn were gobbled up by the end of the VBS.

It was a lot of fun and I even forgot about the pain that has consumed me for months... at least for a little time here and there.

Hi Bob- I love that you and Timmothy do these things together. I have such fond memories of Vacation Bible School when I was a little girl.

That sounds like a delightful morning, Bob.  I also like that photo of you and Timmothy.  It looks like the Grand Canyon in the background.

It was a blast Kathy Streib and I could not have done it without Timmothy's help... fact is Timmothy did the lions share of the work. I did what I do best, gave orders and visit with parents as they dropped off their kids.

That was one of the great backdrops along Route 316 Myrl Jeffcoat . Pastor took each Childs picture in front of it and I wanted to get in on it to. I am really glad I did as this will be one of my favorite pictures of us for a long time if not ever.

Good morning Bob. What are you going to do when your best buddy blasts off for college? You are going to be lost! Until then, have a blast! Bet Timmothy and you had as much fun as the kids. Enjoy your day.

It appears to have been well-attended and the kids look to be having a lot of fun out on the playground!

He sure could Endre Barath, Jr. and it would make a great hairpiece as his hair is very thick. Carol, his mom and my wife, wishes he would have a very short business cut as well as shave his beard. I'd like to see him trim his beard but it's his call.

BTW the popcorn and hotdogs went well for my open houses. I don't regret making those purchases.

It was a total win as you said Nina Hollander, Broker . Even though I was in pain I am so glad that I am still able to help out when called upon.

Wayne Martin , this will be Timmothy's 3rd year and it will indeed be the toughest one for me... especially with my health issues of late. That, coupled with my recent decision to move the Art Gallery and my office to the lower level of the same building. We are moving to a much larger space and cutting our rent to less than half of what I am paying now. I will post about it soon.

Thank you Kat Palmiotti . I am actually in much worse shape today. Maybe it was all the activity. For the first time in years I had to come in an hour later due to the lack of mobility.

We were pleased with the attendance Brian England even though it was less than our first one we held last year. We assumed it was because of all the construction as well as a little less local advertising of the program.
