Let's Kick the Tires and Light the Fires, Big Daddy

Final rehearsal this morning.  Finished up preparations at the church.  Packed my stuff at home (waited until about 10:00pm to get started with that...wonderful).  Inventoried the back pack.  Just have to print a few things to cram in the notebook and catch a couple of winks.

I always get nervous about now.  No matter how many times I do it, no matter how ready I think I am.  It's even worse now that I have children.  Wesley is almost 4 years old, and we have never left him overnight with anyone.  Tomorrow, 30 sets of parents will put their children on a bus with me and trust that I will bring them back on Friday.

Of course, I hope to do more than simply bring them back.  I hope to bring them back inspired, energized, and somehow better than when we left.  I am humbled.  I am honored.  And tomorrow, I am on.
