Coaches Huddle Time:
Me: So girls, do you have any questions for me or Coach Katie? You can ask us anything you want. My shoe size is 8.5. I know you were thinking about asking that, so I thought I would throw it out there.
**dead silence**
Me: Are you sure? No questions at all?
S: When is your birthday?
--we all answer and huddle time ends slightly awkwardly –

SNACK time
Me: Hey girls, you get enough for snack?
R: Do you read the Bible in order?
Me: Um, what?
R: Do you read the Bible in order?
Me: Oh. Well, yes, sometimes. I’m not doing that right now but sometimes I do.
R: What page are you on?
Me: What page? Um…(racking my mind for what I last read; mostly lately I’ve been only reading our camp bible stories and translating favorite verses)
R: How do you decide what to read?
Me: Well, you know how there are 30 or 31 days in 1 month? My dad taught me that there are 31 chapters in Proverbs. So sometimes, whatever day it is, like today is the 18th, I will read the 18th chapter. If you do that every day you can read the whole book in one month.
R: Oh.
Me: What page are you on in your Bible?
R: Numbers 20. *groan*
Me: Numbers? Numbers is a little bit boring, right?
R: Yes!!! Its all “he is the son of this guy, is the son of this guy, is the son of this guy”
Me: How about you, N? What page are you on?
N: I’m on page 30.

So now I know: During coaches huddle, talk about candy and video games, tickle a little bit, TRY and review the theme and the memory verse and maybe a discussion question…and save all the rest of the talking for snack time!!!

I'm so glad you are figuring things out with your group! Sounds like you are having fun and almost a pro :) I have a first grade group for my morning team building this summer and they are a handful!!! It's like they wanted to stick all the dysfunctional kids in one group! I still love them.
Praying for you as you approach your trip and so excited to see what God does!
Miss you.
