Try, Try, Try

Well, VBS didn't seem a hit.  The folks were lovely, but with 50 kids and a large room, it was a tad too overwhelming for Bobby.  When he had a potty accident that he was too embarrassed to get help with, they called us.  When I got there, he was happy, but ready to come home.  I spoke with Maya and, while she was having fun, she wanted to come home, too.

The way home, I just kept telling them that I was proud of them for doing something new and that, hit or miss, it's great to go outside of our comfort zones.  After I gave Bobby a shower, he hugged me and said "I tried."  It broke my heart because I know that he did.. I know he wanted to be successful and that it just didn't work for him this time. 

The VBS people encouraged us to try again and, perhaps, we will.  I don't know.  At this point, neither of the kids has said they want to, but I'll ask again, and we shall see.

Aw, he is so precious for trying so hard. Maybe they will want to try again and if not that's okay, they did try and should be proud of themselves.
