Bible School, Fishing update, & Picnics...

Another week has gone flying by, and here we are again! Chris and I have been teaching Bible school all week, which has pretty much taken over our evenings. Chris is the storyteller, which puts his theatrical training in college to good use, and I am teaching crafts (shocking, huh!). The theme for the week is "Surfin' through the Scriptures" which has been fun with the beach music, beach themed crafts, and Flame' the Pink Flamingo puppet keeping everyone in line! We have made sand picture frames (and taken all the kids' pictures with our beach hut background), flip flop wind catchers using real flip flops (I LOVE the Dollar Tree!) and leis for the tails on them, small foam surf boards decorated with stickers, and tonight we will make tissue paper fish. Tomorrow night is our program, and we hope the weather cooperates so we can do the planned potluck picnic afterward. The kids are thrilled by the idea of a picnic~do people not picnic anymore? With fast food so convenient, we picnic often, by hitting the designated eating establishment and then going to the park. What about you? When was your last picnic? It is a great way to get out of the house, not have to cook, and reconnect with nature and your family! Chris and Mina returned late Tuesday afternoon from the fishing trip to Valentine, and Mina had out fished them all! Grandpa even threatened her that she wouldn't get to ride home in HIS pickup if she out fished him, but he gave in and brought her back. Todd (Chris's brother) caught the biggest pike, but it sounds like they all had fun and they took some beautiful pictures so I will get some posted up. Jewelry has been slow this week, and we have been trying to get stuff ready for the Cottonwood Festival which starts two weeks from today. You can find more info here . We are going to be part of the Graham Gallery artist tent. Three days of art, entertainment, and fun, stop by and check it out if you are in the area!
