Today was Tuesday. I love Tuesdays. Tuesday are the days that children are supposed to show and do arts and crafts with me. This is the second Tuesday in a row that no children have showed up. The program is fun and the kids I’ve had have had fun, so why aren’t they coming back? Why aren’t they telling their friends? I talked with my pastor, she said that sometime this just happens. I suppose that it’s something that I need to get used to. It just makes me so sad.
In other news: My sister’s installation went well. She is now the Junior Princess of her bethel. I’m incredibly proud of her and can’t wait to see her go in as Honor Queen. I did great through the whole ritual, but afterward, when I started thinking about it… I cried. I’m a highly emotional person, everything has feelings tied into it and when I realized that I will probably be the only Kelly to not have reached the East(This is more masonic terminology for you–it’s where the really important people/people in charge sit), I couldn’t help but tear up. My older sister was Worthy Adviser of our Rainbow assembly, which folded before I completed the line. Now Jamie is Junior Princess in Job’s Daughters, where I really just didn’t get along with the girls, and Corey will probably go very far in Squires and DeMoley. I felt like I had let my family down. I feel like I’m the only one not carrying on the legacy, so I got myself a petition for Eastern Star. I’m old enough now, so I might as well join. I’ll be inactive for a few years while I’m away at school, but at least I’ll be a part again. Maybe one day I’ll reach the East, guess we’ll have to wait and see.
More about the excitement at the church soon to come! Bye now!
…except that it has been ANYTHING but that. With all of the resent storms, we have experienced(this week alone) flooding, power surges, downed computer systems, alarm system failure, and much more! Also, the behemoth has died. That’s right, my beloved 1991 Buick took it’s last breath Tuesday morning as I pulled into the church parking lot and hasn’t moved since. I took the battery up to the guys at O’Reilly’s to check it out, I was up there all day yesterday it felt like, and we made a collective decision that the battery could not be salvaged and that the car had run it’s last leg. SO my mom and I will be on a hunt for a reliable, if not glamorous, vehicle for myself.
It feels as if it’s been the longest week of my life. I’m glad it’s over. I love working at the church, I love being involved in the problem solving and talking with the parishioners, but I need a break. Tomorrow I will be helping my roommate from school, who also happens to be one of my best friends, with a garage sale. It will be good, we haven’t seen each other in a while. Then Saturday is my baby sister’s installation as junior princess for our Job’s Daughters bethel. I’m really proud of her and honored to be her escort. Also, we get to wear pretty dresses. 😉
Anyway, if there’s anyone reading, I thank you. I know that there is more about my life than my job in this post, but as I said before, I haven’t really decided what the main theme of this blog will be.
Hello all of my, I’m guessing here, nonexistent readers!
I haven’t quite decided what this blog will be about, but I’m interning this summer with the pastor at my local church, so it stands to reason that most of my posts will be related to that. My big project, you could say, this summer is a children’s ministry. It’s called the Caretaker’s Club, we meet Tuesday afternoons from 4-6pm. The program is designed to teach kids K-3rd how to care for God’s creation. Most of the activities are arts and crafts using recycled materials. We also play games that teach the kids some facts about recycling(They really like those!) and we’ll be planting terrariums and “sponge plants.”
If any of you are in the Kansas City/Grandview, MO area, you’re kids are invited!
