Sometimes brilliant ideas just don’t come to pass.
When I was researching and brainstorming for things to do at KidsPointe for the two Sundays prior to Thanksgiving, I had what I thought was a brilliant idea. I wanted to have a KidsPointe Thanksgiving Parade. You know, like Macy’s, only a little smaller. Each class was going to have it’s own theme with a float and costumes. There would be pilgrims in the Mayflower, Indians around a teepee, scarecrows in a cornfield, football players, cheerleaders, turkeys, pumpkins and a kazoo marching band. We were even going to have knights and princesses as a teaser for the next series starting in January. All the floats were going to be made of paper mache, and I had already placed an all call for newspaper all over Moncks Corner. Sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it?
Yeah, that’s why we’re not doing it.
I just didn’t get going on it in time. I’m disappointed in myself for not following through on a good idea. However, I know it would have taken a lot of energy for not much return. There’s so much more that I need to work on that has to do with actually teaching kids about Jesus. I know, how ’bout you guys just imagine what it would have looked like, and then we’ll just pretend it actually happened. That’s a lot less work.
