Yesterday we missed storytime for the 2nd week in a row. I think I love it more than Judah and I started to have withdrawls. I met a few friends there today, though, and got my fix! The reason why we missed it is because we went on another field trip. This time is was to Mim's Bakery, a really yummy bakery that specializes in amazing wedding cakes. They made cookies and wrote all the kid's names on them. When they asked Judah what his name was he said, "Judah Fai-Ca" (Fairchild). He's so smart! I didn't bring my camera, but I took a few with my NEW phone. Check them out by clicking on the link. It SHOULD take you to a slideshow.
Do you have something that you do when you're nervous? I do! I talk fast. I used to talk with an accent, too, but after having so many people point it out and even ask where I'm from, I've corrected it.
There's a general schedule of how cell groups should run, which includes a 20 minute lesson. When I led my very first cell group my lesson lasted less than 5 minutes. I had no idea what to do with the extra time. I don't remember what I ended up doing, but I know that I was very nervous. At the Encounter I taught two lessons and someone said that they were "clear and concise." I said everything I wanted to say, but didn't ramble on like some people do (in a good way). For the next Encounter (I'll be teaching the same two lessons) I'll have to practice my rambling.
Yesterday, like I mentioned before, I went to the Wake Up Now meeting. At each meeting everyone gives a little "commercial" on their business. For this particular meeting everyone's had to be 15 second or less and also had to be exciting and entertaining. If you went over 15 seconds this man would ring a bell and you had to do a little dance (which he called the "hoochie-koochie" haha). So, when it came to my turn I'd say my commerical was....ohhhh...about 2 seconds. Literally. Like I said, I talk fast, so they had all my information, it was just "clear and concise"!
