The SunBeams: little rays of sun

James and I have been called to be Sunbeam teachers in the Sunday School. these little three year old are teaching us more about life than either of us wanted to know.
This last Sunday was Easter, which means hunting for eggs filled with candy. Our calling is keeping this group of kids busy for two hours. We got to experience the height of their sugar rushes and the crash.
My conclusion, sugar affects kids hearing, they can't hear what you are saying, and they have to talk louder to hear what they are saying. Candy also affects the eye sight, all day the kids could see something in the corner of their eye and were constantly trying to see it more clearly. the result was them flinching, turning their heads quickly, and constant movement of all body parts.
to stay sane we told them the Easter Bunny was going to leave them a treat if they behaved, and no they were not going to see the Easter Bunny because no one see the Easter Bunny on Easter, Duh!
we got through class and handed them each a plastic egg filled with candy. As we handed the kids back to their parents, with sugar back in their systems, we smiled and wished them a Happy Easter.
