Joshua and Caleb attended Clown Camp this week at the YMCA. My first thought when I heard about the idea as â€œyou have to teach a six year how to clown around?â€ â€“ it seems to come natural. But they loved this past week. And yes, there are some things that should only be done by â€œprofessionalsâ€ For example, they learned the traditional â€˜slap.â€™ Joshua and Caleb were shown by a professional how to fake a slap and how to receive a fake slap. When the boys showed us, we laughed, but later when H-G tried to do what she saw her brothers do she actually slapped Kimberly in the face (which wasnâ€™t funny). So they learned how to do the slap, stomp a foot, the elevator behind a sheet trick, and many other gags and tomfoolery.
I am currently studying Ecclesiastes in my quiet time and one of the things that has stood out in the first seven chapters is that we should enjoy life while you can, because you donâ€™t know what the future holds. So this week there was much laughter in our home.
Ecclesiastes 7:14 â€œIn the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him.â€
