This was my first year to be able to participate in VBS. I was so excited because the last time I was involved in VBS was many years ago as a kid (no, I'm not telling how many years ago...). Anyway, I was a helper with the 1st and 2nd grade class. They were the smallest and quietest bunch but they were so good. We never had one problem and they eventually opened up a little. Here are some pics. from our "Ticket to Adventure".
This is Rachel, our class teacher. As you can see, our classroom is covered from ceiling to floor. Our goal was for it to look like we were sitting inside of a boat.
This is our class. They came faithfully every day.
These guys were our music leaders. They did a great job keeping the kids interested in singing!
The kids singing in music class.
Our fearless music leaders singing the silly song of the week - Make A Melody In Your Heart.
During music time I saw Paul sitting in the back doing the motions with the kids. He caught me trying to take a pic. so I didn't get him doing the motions but it's still a funny pic!
This is our photographer for the week and my beautiful pregnant friend, Kelly.
Our lessons this week were of the journeys of Paul. This day we learned about Paul and Silas singing in jail so we "locked" up the kids with paper chains. She doesn't look so thrilled about being locked up! haha!
A fun picture of our class.
One of the crafts they did this week. She's coloring the paper that will go in her plastic mug.
This is one of the games the kids played this week - Big Ball! Boy, does this bring back memories.
Who won the pennies contest this week??? The GIRLS won!
The kids had fun, the adults had fun. It was just a great week! I can't wait to do it again next year!
