Last night we had our ANNUAL DRIVE-IN MOVIE night at AWANA.
All the kids are encouraged to make cars out of cardboard boxes and bring them to club. We then project a movie on the wall, fire up the popcorn machine, and enjoy a night at the movies. It is a lot of fun, but at the same time it is a night I fret over. I told Todd that I don't look forward to these special events because there are so many ways it can go wrong. For instance, last year the movie was shorter than I realized so I ended up having 30 minutes to kill.(To my defense, the movie cover said it was an hour long. I have learned that an hour INCLUDES all of the special features with the movie.) Thankfully, our music leader stepped in and led the kids in song. I also gave a message to end the night. This year, our movie went too long. Yes, I do know how to figure out time issues, but for some reason, my calculator in my head wasn't registering. I blame it on old age. So, we didn't finish our movie last night. I told the kids we would finish it at our next club night. ugh! See what I mean. Too many things can go wrong.
