The Next Time...

The next time I let my kids sign up for a VOLUNTARY Missions Fair project at our umbrella school you have my permission to do these things:

A. Poke me in the eye with a sharp object
B. Knock me upside the head with a shovel
C. Make me watch Dinosaur Train over and over and over

Who knew that a simple childrens project would be such a part of my sanctification process?

I know I will be glad they did it (when its all over) and I am happy they even wanted to do it this year. It was battle all the other years to get them interested. But the ONE year I decide we just don't have the time to commit to-they want to do it. Go figure.

Edited to add: I just came back and read this and realized it sounds pretty bad. Sorry. It has been one of those days.


  1. I'll be glad to help! You know I'm all about a project!

  2. Thanks Jill, but its due Friday. And we will be gone all day tomorrow so it is today or nothing.

  3. You mean you do not like dinosaur train?? Well, actually the only reason I like it is because it mesmorizes 3 out of 4 kids in my home. (But I am a good mommy, who only takes advantage of tv like this about 1x a week).

  4. Dinosaur Train, Dinosaur Train.......

  5. Hope tomorrow is a much better day!

  6. Yikes! I feel your pain. I hope it magically does itself in the middle of the night!!

  7. I have never seen Dinosaur Train. How does it compare to Barney or The Wiggles? You've scared me yet intrigued me at the same time.

    I hope the missions fair actually turned out great and you'll share photos and the story later!
