VBS 2009

I know, I know, it has been forever long since I've blogged. It happens. We have had a busy week, and I am just now getting around to it. I know you all understand!

This past week was our congregation's VBS. The theme was "Riders of the Great Roundup" and the lessons centered around some of the parables. I taught the 4-K class and had a great time! They were a good group of kids. We ranged from 9-12 kids each night, and that kept me busy! Unfortunately, besides a few pictures of my room, I don't have many "class" shots to show. I took my camera every night, but never managed to take many pictures! Sandy's post definitely puts mine to shame!!!

Each night in the auditorium, the kids got to see a skit that centered around our lesson for the night. Mark, Parker, and Kinlee got to be in some of the skits, and they really enjoyed it. Mark played a lazy servant and a large bird, Parker and Kinlee played various "kid" roles each night. Below are some pictures of the skits:
Don't you just love Mark's large bird costume! The picture certainly does not do it justice - he ran from the back of the auditorium, flapping his arms and squawking the whole way! His job was to steal the "seed" that the farmer sowed on the wayside. He definitely stole the seed AND the show! What a ham!!!
All in all, it was a great week. I think we were all relieved when it was over - it's a lot of work! However, I couldn't think of a better way to spend some extra time and energy. I do have to admit I'm glad it only rolls around once a year!!!

Great shots! Like you I am really glad VBS is only once a year! While it's lots of fun it is also very draining!!
