The Application

I went to sleep early but got up about two hours early too. Not on purpose of course. I'm hoping tonight I will fall asleep early and sleep through the night but either of those will do just fine. Jadyn had her first practice for talent show after school today. I'm not sure what song, but I know it's from the 50s because Jadyn will be wearing a poodle skirt. Aunt Sandy picked Bryn up from after school care and Jadyn from talent show and took them to get haircuts. We got home late tonight, but tomorrow I'll take pictures and post them; they look adorable.

As I was going through that summer application I felt confident on all but one of the questions. Most of the questions were things like: Previous experience working with kids? Teaching soccer skills to elementary and preschool kids. References? I had good ones. However, my honesty got the better of me on this question: Are you willing to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ? No. Then I wrote this explanation: I'd put "yes" if I could but I'm not a Christian. Tomorrow I'll tell you about the phone call I got from the Christian director of the Christian camp.

I'm glad you're telling your story about how you came to Christ. Since I've been a Christian all my life, I can't even begin to comprehend what life would be like without Jesus. I don't want to, either. I'm just glad you found Him, or He found you, or you found each other....

I hope you're getting rested, too. That talent-show act sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. How I envy you getting to participate with Jadyn in that. Wasn't she in "Calendar Girls" last year? A friend of ours was also in that. That was absolutely adorable!

Hope to see you guys this weekend.

In Him and around the corner (and thinking a Campfire would be fun this Saturday),

Wow, Jake! Your story has us on the edge of our seats. Can't wait to hear the rest and see the pictures of the Yikes with their new haircuts. :-)
