Our first practice

We had our first practice on Sunday. Oh my goodness! i never thought it would be so hard to teach a bunch of kids how to walk around in a circle.

you have helpers don't you? that's a lot of pressure for one person! especially all of you just being thrown in there together, hitting the play button saying, ok, go, make it work. but i'm sure you're doing great - after all, you do have four children ages 6 and under...and daily life with that is no small feat. :)

:) yah.. the sunday school teachers were helpful. The thing is that the powers that be decided to have *all* the kids dance...not just the ones who volunteered. So for the first service, i had about 20 kids... 10 of whom were 6th grade boys, who were not happy about what they were doing. eek! But i had a man step in & give them a good talking to, & then the were cooperative.

But even then, it was pretty funny... the little kindergarten girls figured it out right away, but those boys just couldn't understand walking in a circle! :) I really almost gave up. But one of the other teachers was very encouraging & kept telling me they could do it, & we extended the practice time... by the time we were done, they got the idea, more or less.

then in the afternoon class, i had a smaller group who was equally unhappy about being there. But i had confidence from the first group. Which was good, b/c when i was done, one of the teachers actually said to me, "I didn't think you'd be able to do it." *siiigh*
