Networking at CPC….

The best part about CPC is meeting ‘fans’ of Kidology and meeting new people that either I’ve only known through the site, or that know about Kidology but I’ve never met yet. This is Shelly. I met Shelly last year at CPC when a pillar of balloons was slowly chacing her across the room, it was nuts. (it was mysterious, we actually thought there was a person inside the pillar of balloons, but it was something to do with the air conditioning vents.) Anyway, she is excited about a brand new position as children’s pastor. :) This is Jamie, our CPC Contest winner! She came to CPC all the way from Canada! This is ‘balloonpastor’ Dave, a Kidology member who’s become a good friend, even sending me some cool spider man silly string shooters last year that were a blast with my kids. This is Roger. A Kidology member it was fun to meet. Larry is a children’s pastor who used to be in chicago but moved to Florida this year – nice tan, eh. It was really fun meeting these friends from ‘down under’ / Australia. They invited me to come speak there in August 2006 and I told …

Karl off to Atlanta, Georgia!

Well, it’s off to Atlant, GA for CPC #3. I am speaking twice as well as helping out in the eZone, and free computer cafe for conference atttendees that promotes the all new INCM.org website that Kidology created this year. I traveled with Steve Tanner, Kidology’s Web Operations Director, and Ron Fugle, a friend and fellow children’s performer. (goes by “Master Ron”) Ron, Me, and Steve The flight was uneventful. (whew) I worked on e-mail offline while Tannerman put the premeir episode the Amazing Race on his laptop. I brought my little gadget that boosts headphone signal and splits to three headphones so we all three watched. Working on a plane isn’t ideal, but at least no e-mail can come in, and the phone never rings! I can actually catch up! Got almost through the 200+ e-mails I was behind on!! Tanner looks like he is in pain! And no ‘Mac vs. PC’ fights broke out! Once in Atlanta, we opted for the puplic train system over the airport shuttle, partly because the shuttle was $16 per person and the train $1.75 per person, and partly because the boss (me) was treating. They guys humored me when I insisted on …

Taking over Culvers!

I have a new scheme – now understand, I don’t actually DO my schemes – I just like thinking them up. (I think my getting saved at age 4 was God’s way of preventing all my schemes) Not that they are all ‘bad’ – most of them are silly, like this one. Here’s my scheme: I think I should visit all the restaurants in town and see if they will give me a free meal if I bring six familes to lunch. Oh, well, I’ll never ask, so it will never happen, BUT I did invite six families out to lunch Sunday after church. Sara was out of town and no sense eating alone! For some mysterious reason, I ended up at the kids table, and the adults all sat over in a giant ‘adults only’ booth. It was a blast! I got a new digital camera that has one feature I miss from my very first digital camera 7 years ago – and an essential feature with kids – being able to rotate the screen and face it toward the subjects so kids (and me) can make funny faces and see ourselves in the view finder before taking the …

PK Heads Back to Bible Times?

This morning I went to a fun training day with some volunteers from my church… No, it was NOT on “How to be a Cool Hippie” (this is my sister Melissa) It was a ‘Hands On’ training day for Group’s VBS. (the originators of ‘hands-on bible learning‘) Pictured here: Me, Judy, Melissa, and Teri (with authentic “Bible Dude” in the background)We were there to learn more about the VBS program we plan to use this summer and to see samples of the crafts, teaching, props, etc. We really like that it is designed to be a family VBS that the whole family can come together and experience togeter. It was fun to see that even little kids who normally would be off in child-care or a separate preschool program, were enjoying the day as much as the older kids and grown ups. (the pastors son at the host church) I was glad to find out what the official beverage of the Bible Lands was: YES! Mountain Dew.It’s all part of well balanced Biblical Diet: I also made a new friend… he calls himself “The Great Dane” and he is already a professional magician at age 12, doing Gospel magic – …
