vbs 2010

so here it is again, a week later and no update on the blog.  it must be summer vacation because i am so off schedule!  well, i have a good (sort of) excuse for not blogging last week.  my days were filled with vbs!

our church did a space themed vbs this year called space probe: genesis 1 for ages 3-6th grade.  i had the privilege of co-teaching a group of 1st graders and burrito was in my class.  we had 18 first graders so you can understand why i was too tired to blog last week, right???
i think all of the kids had a great time, and i had a wonderful time getting to know them better and teaching with some wonderful ladies from our church.  it was a busy time, and we were constantly on the move.  we rotated from one activity to another every 20-25 minutes from 9:00-12:00.
all of the groups started the day marching into the sanctuary to sing to the Lord and to watch a little space skit everyday.  we then rotated to the lecture hall to listen to an astronaut tell a story from the Bible about creation.  we then had class time where we practiced our memory verse for the week, listened to a Bible story, decorated space ships and worked in our workbooks.  we also had snack time, recreation, music and crafts.  we then all joined back up in the sanctuary at the end to sing all together.
both burrito and noodle absolutely loved it.  last night, we had an all-church sing and the kids were invited back to sing a few of their songs from vbs for the congregation.  our boys were so excited we had to have a "practice session" that afternoon at home to get ready.  and they did not disappoint.  in fact, i had a couple of people come up to us afterwards to tell me how cute they were.  they were very serious about those hand motions!  ha!

it was a great week of fun and i am thankful for all those who worked so hard to make it happen.  can't wait for next year!

VBS was awesome and your boys are too cute. Miss N refused to do anything but stand there. LOL. She has done all the stuff for us at home.
