Last week Ewan was in Bible School and I was his crew leader. Three is the youngest age you can be to attend and we knew he would have fun, once he got over his shyness. Which is why I volunteered to be a crew leader so that he would have me there if needed. Please excuse the blurry photos I took on my phone!
There were only three three year olds and three leaders, so they got one on one attention. Once Ewan got over his shyness, he had a blast. He made crafts, played games and had story time. He also picked up the bible verse we learned, 1 John 4:7, and tells it to us all the time. Probably the best part is that he made a few friends...which hopefully means that he'll go to the preschool room on his own!
Volunteering also allowed me to meet people at church, which is one of the reasons we don't go all the time because we feel awkward. While Ewan was a little upset that he wasn't in any of the photos shown to the congregation at the end of the week, I'm glad we did it. We'll probably do it again next year too!
