VBS 2011- Shake it up Cafe

DSC_0142

Last week was VBS at our church.  This is our second year attending and this year was just as much fun as last year.  I love  that the kids get so excited to go to church!  This year we decided to take part in the daily dinners at church before VBS and it made everything- SO EASY at night.  We arrived at 5:30PM ate dinner, went to our classes and got home around 8:45PM.  The only tough part was everyone was pretty much exhausted by Friday.  Whew! 

This year I volunteered again in the craft room for the 3rd-5th graders.  My partner told me that even though I had a baby I was not off the hook. ha! I decided to see what I could do with a 5mo. old. She was officially the youngest participant there!!  Luckily, Cailyn is the easiest baby.  I either wore her, took her to the nursery, or she hung out with us in the craft room.

The older kids loved seeing her and Ms. Bonnie loved the chance to hold her.

Friday night was the assembly. It was so cute.  Wesley is not much for crowds but I saw him sing a little bit and do some of the sign language.

Then we watched the older kids’ commencement.  Wesley was not impressed…can you tell?

I could not get any pictures of Lawson during the ceremony you will just have to trust me she was there!

During VBS, the kids had a little competition between the girls and  boys to see who raises enough money for Feed the Hungry.  Our kids asked to get money out of their piggy bank to donate.  It was so sweet to see them put their money in the appropriate buckets.  Of course, some parents were writing checks (we did not) and the boys won.  $400 to $300.  You would of thought Wesley won the lottery.  He was jumping up and down cheering “Boys won, woo-hoo!!” 

The kids and I had a fabulous time at VBS!!
