sunday school class teachers

We taught the K - 1st grade sunday school class today. It was really fun. We were both a little nervous. Kyle had never taught before and I had only been a "helper" before. After getting off to a rocky start (we had one kid that didn't want to do anything and ended up going back to sit with his mom.... what?!), we ended up having a good time with the kids. We were teaching them about the magi that came to worship Jesus and the fact that you can worship anywhere. I think the message kind of got lost on them, but it was fun creating bright, glittery stars so the Magi could find the baby, playing a trivia game for snacks, and playing the "where did they worship" game. The time passed much faster than we thought it would, which was good. Afterwards, Kyle kept telling me what a good job I did, and how good I was with kids. He was like "I had no idea what to do or say and you always did." He kept praising my abilities with kids, which came after living in a daycare my whole life (my mom had a home daycare). Well, needless to say, I chalked up a couple points in the "I'm ready for kids" category. Woo Hoo!
