|The collection of origami that I gave to the kids in my Sunday School class.|
Sunday, July 10, 2011
We're in the process of moving states in the very near future; hence the reason why I haven't posted anything new lately. Today was our last Sunday here. While here I team-taught the 11-year-old Sunday School class at my church. I loved it. The kids are amazing. Anytime that I could I would bring origami to give them. In the midst of packing everything my wife and I went through all of the origami that I've folded and accumulated while here (and even things we moved here). So, I decided that I would take everything that I was planning on getting rid of and take it to the kids in my class to see if they wanted any of it. Before church I decided to count everything and take a picture. Here's what I gave away:
I decided that I'd let them take turns at picking out what they wanted. In order to decide what order they got to pick things I took a large jar of origami stars that I had been collecting since I was about 18 and had them guess how many there were. I wasn't sure if they'd want all of what I brought. I had 122 separate things for them to pick from; I didn't come home with a single thing. I'm definitely sad to move away, but the opportunities will be good. I've been unemployed for over a year now and the move will allow for much better job opportunities. Until we find work and get more settled it may be a little difficult to post here. Until next time, Enjoy!
