When the girls found out I was getting married in a few weeks, all 18 of them started jumping up and down and asking if they could be flower girls. It was very sweet.
Later in the day, one little girl stared at me at length, her face deep in thought. Finally, she piped up: "You don't look like you're from around here...are you Canadian?" I tried so hard to keep from laughing.
By the end of the day, both John and I were completely exhausted. I had forgotten how much energy elementary school-aged kids have! I'm really grateful for the opportunity to work with the kids and share the gospel with them. I'm sure I'll have many entertaining stories to share with you as the school year progresses!
