should I be more nervous?

So our big event is this saturday. close to 400 kids, a couple hundred volunteers, carnival games, inflatables, food, fun, prizes, puppets, and more...I've trained, planned, decorated, shopped, made endless lists, thought through the details and then thought them through again backwards in case I missed anything...

...and it seems to be going so well.

...fingers crossed.

Last year was the gun and fire year...let's hope that doesn't happen again! basically the story goes that there was a police officer sitting in the front row next to a tiny preschool girl and she was eyeing his gun and when I noticed how close she was to it I also noticed another preschool girl who was running up to the speaker who was juggling fire because she wanted to help if he dropped what he was juggling...I turned to one of the volunteers next to me pointed her towards the girl next to the gun and said "you get the gun, I'll get the fire.." and we managed to move the little girl away from the gun and stop the other girl from grabbing the jugglers fire sticks...never thought those words would come out of my mouth at a preschool church event! wonder what this year will hold!

Hilarious! If you ever just want something to do you should write down the kids stories and the parent ones both funny and poignant and create a book with reflections like you do so well!
