So if you know me even a little bit, then chances are you know my life has been ALL VBS recently. Last year for VBS we had the best time being submerged underwater.
And then this year we were Galactic Starveyors in outer space!
Last year I had all the feels because it was Caleb’s first ever VBS and I absolutely loved seeing my own child have a blast and learn all about Jesus. Well this year it was even more fun since he was a year older and was able to participate in even more! I can’t wait until he’s the actual age for VBS and gets to experience all of the things. I know that he will love it even more than he already does (which is a pretty bold statement).
We are so blessed to have an amazing team of women that are super gifted in the decorating department. They transformed our church into an amazing scene of a backyard looking up at outer space. We were all big fans!
I had the awesome opportunity to have the same role as last year and lead with the same amazing person. I pretty much love getting to serve with this girl.
The same two crazy characters showed up from last year, except now in outer space.
It takes a special person to be friends with Astro Nick and Magnolia is the girl for the job.
Our awesome staff even got in on the fun and dressed like crazy people everyday to greet all the kiddos! There’s just something about VBS that brings out the fun in people. 🙂
Not only did Caleb love all the fun VBS activities, he for sure loved that his bestie was there. And she even loved having him there too because let’s just let it be known that it’s usually Caleb doing all of the hugging of Hava, not the other way around. Definitely a win for the little man.
We added a Friday night celebration this year and Caleb LOVED getting to participate in all of the dancing.
None of VBS would have happened without our amazing children’s ministry director. I am beyond grateful to have her as a boss, a friend, and a pseudo-grandma for our little guy. It’s safe to say that our family LOVES us some Ms. Lauri.
The work that goes into VBS is a bit crazy and a whole lot time-consuming, but it all becomes worth it when 57 kids decide that they want to live for Jesus forever. I would gladly give up sleep and some brain cells every year to keep teaching kiddos that Jesus loves them deeply. THAT is what VBS is all about!!!
Until next year!!!
