VBS 2011

This past week was the annual Vacation Bible School in the town where I grew up.  All of our kids have attended since they were old enough to, and I have put in many years of service and volunteering as well, but have taken the last 2 years off since I have clingy little ones that wouldn't part happily from me.  God always does an amazing job pulling this fun, faith-filled week together perfectly.  They use the Group VBS programs and this year's theme was Pandamania.  It was a very exciting and uplifting week for them, full of prayer, Bible stories, snacks, crafts, music, friends and fun!!   

Here's a picture of the crafts they did each day.  (one of the crafts was a gift for the local volunteer firemen, so I wasn't able to get a picture of it, since it was given away)

And, then of course, they do a Friday Finale where they sing all the songs from the week and review all their Bible points.  Here's a few pictures of them performing or posing with their crews....
