LOL at Windham Assembly of God

May 03 2017

This year's LOL team, my 7th and 8th grade juggling troupe, has grown so much.  Kasy, one of my new students, didn't juggle at all in September but last week was doing fire devil sticks.  Caleb,Caleb and Cailyn have create a basketball passing routine unlike anything I've seen or done before.  The confidence they bring to the stage is remarkable.  Later this month they will be doing their annual four day tour of Burlington, Vermont, so Sunday's show was their last Maine show of the year.  Appropriately, it was at the Windham Assembly of God, the church that houses our school.

And the show was the best yet.  The opening partner juggling routine was spot on, including Emily and Liz stealing clubs from each other.  The individual juggling routine was even stronger. Caleb B was so strong with three basketballs, and Elijah's finish with rubber chickens was so funny.  Kasy got us off to a good start with silks and devil sticks.

The rest of the routines were also exceptional.  We had two last minute absentees, so we had to fill in for,them, and the subs did great.  Jacob hadn't done the magic coloring book in months, but it was as if he hadn't ever stopped. The one routine we simply couldn't do with both Caleb H and Sam absent was "Prodigal Juggler".  Instead I used that time to share a few moments about the importance of fathers' involvement in their kids lives, and then the concept of God as father.

Since Veronica is not going to Vermont with us, this was her last show.  I chose her to close the service in prayer; it was such an emotional moment, and she was so sweet and sincere as she thanked God for the LOL experience.  That's why we do,what we do!
