Last Sunday night, our church's Facilities Team was having their meeting. JG (who just turned seven over the weekend!) suddenly raised his hand. When the Pastor (my dad) called on him, he said, "You know what we need to do? Wash the bus." None of us adults had noticed that the church bus was in need of a washing, so we showed sincere appreciation for his input. A few minutes later he contributed again. "And when are we going to change those light bulbs?" What light bulbs? "That one there, and that one there, and that one right there." He was right. There were three bulbs blown out among the 27 bulbs that populate our ceiling lights. He also told me later that he had discovered, while crawling around on the church floor, that some small child had scribbled on the underside of one of the pews.
So JG is now an official member of the Facilities Team. And, of course, Mommy is using this as a homeschooling activity. Under my tutelage, he sat down in WordPad and typed up the following report. Today he's going to turn it in to his team leader.
