Ah, Sunday. Have you ever noticed that Sunday mornings are just chaotic. I always lay out our clothes the night before, and get shoes ready, bags packed, even hair bows put on the bathroom counter. But things take time, and I always feel rushed. Fred likes to buy donuts every Sunday morning and that leaves me to get kids ready while he's at the store. I'm not griping, because that also means that I don't have to cook!
I'm the "receptor" at church now, which means that I check the kids in before they head to their classes. I'm not really sure why I'm supposed to do this. I'm not giving the parents tags to pick their child up. It would make more sense to me to have the SS teachers give the parents tags when they drop the child off and then a "discharger" releases the child to the parent with the tag after class. But what do I know? I just do as I'm told. I've stirred up enough already, so maybe I should just keep my mouth shut.
But two other quick questions about church:
1) Does every church now have Nintendo-type games set up? Is it the norm for churches to pay $300+ to have these new Wii nintendo things in the children's church? Am I just out of touch? What's the point of that?
2) Do girls still wear dresses and skirts to church? Should they? Should they be required to wear shorts underneath, or slacks, for the times in class that they are doing jumping jacks and going down steep out-of-the-ceiling slides? Hmmm... Again, I think I'm just out of touch here. I certainly don't mind Isabelle wearing shorts under her dresses, but I think she should be dressed up for church. It shows respect and signifies that this is an important, worshipful event.
