VBS 2017

Vacation Bible School's theme: Maker Fun Factory.
Created by God, Built for a Purpose.


It's been quite some years since we've participated in VBS at church. This year, with the girls being in 6th grade, they were able to serve as Jr. Crew Leaders... without ME! Look at how cute they are, sitting with their group.


 Friends who also happen to be our neighbors.


 They were so excited to see their old bestie from JCA, Sarai!


 These two had to keep all the boys under control. Thankfully they have some experience with that! 😉


A bird's nest and a mermaid.
It must be WACKY HAIR DAY!! 😜😜

 So simple and beautiful!


 Grace's mermaid turned out super cute, too!
I love that she insisted on a modest picture of Ariel. She wanted to set a good example for the kids!  
The girls did their own hair, I just helped them assemble and spray paint.
I'll be honest, mornings like this usually stress me out but we picked EASY hair do's that could be put together in no time. Plus, the whole thing only cost me $3 (for the birds). We had everything else at home. 
Praise the LORD!  




 They added a new little one to their crew. 😃 




Zach wanted his sissy but Josiah wanted a hug, too so they compromised. Zach was not thrilled.


Then on the last day, Elizabeth was able to join them and help serve in their group, too. #threebeauties 

Well, there's no getting around it. The girls are growing up right before our eyes. This was the first year EVER they served at VBS without me. They were only able to serve 3/5 days since they had summer school with Miss Lyndi on the other two days, but next year, they hope to be there ALL WEEK!
Morgan dropped them off early at 7:30 and I would pick them up with Zach at noon.

VBS is usually an exhausting week for everyone but the girls absolutely LOVED every minute of it. In fact, Faith said, "I can't think of a better reason to get up early than to serve and help bring other kids to Christ."

See what I mean?? They are growing up!! I just love their big hearts and their enthusiasm to serve!

Over 300 kids participated in VBS at our church and 90 of them made a decision to come to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Hallelujah!

My predication is this week will go down as one of the girls' Top 3 summer memories. FUN!!! 

We are so proud of you, Faith and Grace!
