It's VBS week...that's Vacation Bible School, for those who are curious.  Not for the church that I am employed with but for the church down the street and around the corner.  A couple of years ago I was asked to lead music for them.  I said sure and have been doing so ever since.  It's always fun to see how other groups run their programs, helps keep the creativity flowing.  I also enjoy the fact that all I do is lead the band.  That's it.  I play 3 songs at the beginning, 2 songs at the end and am done.  This year they have increased the song load, so we have wound up doing 4 songs at the beginning and 3 at the end.  Not a big deal, it's fun. 

As fun as that is, the reality always strikes me about this time during the week that I still have my regular job to do.  Morning VBS really wreaks havoc with my schedule!  My usual schedule allows me to have most mornings free, seeing as how I work a lot of evening hours.  VBS means I have to be at neighbor church at 8:30am.  Today, I went from VBS, to work church for a staff meeting, to a lunch with K and Creative Guy, to work church and then to the beach with the youth groups.  Really, not a bad afternoon, but I left my house at 8:10am and arrived home at 8pm...to a house that had been closed up all day long, it was 86 degrees inside, and plants that needed attention.  Yeah, VBS messes with my schedule.  But it sure is fun!
