Vacation Bible School was a hit this year! We had a week full of fun for the kids and it totally tired me out, but it was so worth it! Our theme was "Walking in SON light" so we went wild with beach and luau decorations. The kids loved it and we all had a great time getting it ready. This picture is of our craft room. The ladies in there did an awesome job putting it together and that hula girl was one of Mr. Mike C.'s masterpieces!!
I went for the Beach look in my room. I taught the 3yr. olds with the wonderful help of Ashley and Wendi!! Without them I couldn't have done it. We had 11 kids each day and 12 on Friday!! That was after we pawned 3 of them off to the 2yr. old class :-)
Can you see our plane? Mr. Mike drew that for us too! He is just awesome!! He whipped it up there in about 30 seconds!
VBS was from 9-Noon each day and first we would meet in the auditorium to sing. My dad was the songleader and did a great job! The kid's favorite was definitely all the versions of 'Lord's Army' that we learned!! BTW...my dad had a hawaiian shirt for each day...he loves them :-)
We would also get a brief Bible story told to us by 'The Wandering Prophet'. My kids thought he was pretty cool but some of the 2yr. olds looked a little concerned...but by the third day I think everyone was fine :-)
On Wed. we studied Queen Ester, so she came too! Jack thought she was soooo pretty! He kept looking at her :-)
Jack was my super big boy and went to the 2yr. old class. He did so good each day and sat on his row with Ms. Andrea even though I was right across the aisle with my class! He learned so many songs and his new favorite is 'The Wise Man'
They were the three amigos all week! Super cute and very good! We didn't have any major catastrophes and I didn't lose anybody :-) Now I can relax and take a breather. Volunteering for it is like having a baby...right after it's over you say 'never again' but after a while you forget the pain and you sign up for it again :-) So I guess I'll see you next year!! We're doing Bible Boot Camp! Sounds like fun!!
