Vacation Bible School 2013

Our church had Vacation Bible School the week of June 17-20.  It was a fun, crazy, wild, amazing, exhausting week!  The kids all heard the gospel and had a blast, so I would say that it was a major success.  :)

The theme was Colossal Coaster World and the kids studied the life of Paul.  They seemed to LOVE the theme and all of the activities.

My crew for the week - my three plus our sweet friend that lives across the street
They had so much fun!
I had signed up to be a teacher in 1st grade crafts a couple of months ago.  In an odd turn of events, I found out on the Saturday before VBS that I was the lead teacher for 1st grade crafts.  Hello, panic attack!  I had two days to do what the other lead teachers had worked on for months.  Thankfully, the crafts were planned out and the supplies had been purchased.  I had to decorate my room, sort/organize the crafts for each day (enough for 125 kids for each of the 4 days - 500 crafts total), make samples, and recruit the other teachers to help.  Yowsers!  It all came together, thankfully, and we had a great week.
Our crafts for the week

On Thursday night, we had a family night program.  The kids were adorable performing all of their songs from the week.  There's nothing sweeter than a sanctuary full of cute kids praising the Lord!

Owen's teachers made him a precious little scrapbook of his week.  Adorable!  I am so grateful to have such a fun keepsake.

We were all soooo tired by the end of the week!  Just totally exhausted...  It was so worth it, though!  I'm already planning for next year.  :)
