I'll be honest, Jr. High isn't exactly my favorite age. I haven't even loved Captain C being 10 and he isn't in there yet. It is such an in between age really. Not quite a kid but not quite a teen. [Ironically, Big Daddy and I met in a youth group. We were both out of college and my sister and her hubby were teaching in the youth group with Big Daddy and his roommate. My sis invited me to come...and sorta set us up. We met at a youth workers dinner, started dating 3 weeks later, got engaged about 2 months later and married 5 months later. That was over 13 years ago.] So when Big Daddy approached me about helping teach jr high on Sunday evenings, I wasn't too keen on the idea. But then it started to grow on me...a little. I know he loves youth and I wanted to be supportive of him, and to not be serving separately so much (he works with youth on Wed nights and I work with the children). So tonight, I ventured back into the youth department and guess what? I liked it. It is definitely different than the 2 year old class we teach on Sunday mornings but I think I am going to enjoy it. I am not teaching, just hanging out with the girls while another lady teaches (she did great!)....and even played the first game of kickball I have played in a long time. It was fun. I am looking forward to getting to know these great girls and watching God transform them into the young ladies He wants them to be.
