After a run to camp in the morning, the full day of fire fighting then its off to Vacation Bible School. We are doing Group's Avalanche Ranch program. The last few years it has been absolutely exhausting. There have been 30-40 kids, we start with dinner, songs,then bible study and crafts and call it a night. It makes for a long day when it starts more than 12 hours earlier. This year there aren't a lot of kids from outside our congregation, the kids are getting a little older and know each other better and dare I say it has actually been enjoyable and only semi-exhausting. We have a new member who is a pianist for a dinner theater and she SO rocks! The music is awesome. With the western theme there is even line dancing.
I am the craft lady. We've done journals (in the picture above), t-shirts, boot birdhouses and bears for a mission project. The kids hated the journals, had a hard time doing the lacing and are still complaining about it days later. Other than that its gone more smoothly than I would have imagined. We are coasting now, tomorrow night is picture frames with portraits that Gman took to go inside--yes, these took too much effort to be called pictures, they were portraits complete with the entire studio set-up and green screen. Here are Boobah and PDQ for your viewing pleasure.
