a different schedule (that just might kill me)

Date May 21, 2009

I’m not cut out for this.

I TEACH kids.  I don’t raise them.

But this week, I’m in Knoxville, TN (Go Vols!) with six Colombian kids that forget to brush their hair (and teeth) and need to be tucked in and be reminded to eat lunch and told how much farther it is and to buckle up and to please (FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY AND CHOCOLATE!) flush the toilet.

And this schedule is wearing me slap out!

I love it.

Check us out on the Destination Imagination website.  Global Finals 2009.  We’re rockin’ it.

    Good luck… or am I behind and it’s over? Hang in there. Kids are great. At least you don’t have to change diapers…. UGH!

    Amen to Deanna’s comment. Hang in there, you never know what God is preparing you for. hahahaha

    Be sure to let us all know how it goes! I’m sure your kiddos are ready to conquer the world, even if they can’t remember to flush or brush! Sorry about the rhyme- we’re working on couplets and I’m going around sounding like Dr. Suess!!!

    Are you really sure you want 5 or 6 kids? It never ends and you don’t even have sharks living in your house like we do. They come in Cate’s room every night. She’s not scared of them, she just has these rituals we have to follow so they don’t take her water cup, glasses, and princess blanket.

    I guess you’ve been in America for the entirety of the past several years. But now you’re in the US of America. That’s what I meant. 🙂

    Sounds like a normal week at Camp Lake Stephens. Except there’s no mud hike, flag raising, or relationship drama.
