Last night Andy reminded me that I hadn't updated my blog since last Thursday. I've been a bit busy and tired. I volunteered to be the crafts person for our VBS. I'm enjoying it but it has kept me busy and very tired. I have crafts for the Kindergarten through 5th graders which is roughly 100 kids. The younger kids, (ages 3-5) stay in their own rooms for crafts. I've been there early every day and today I even went back to get things ready for tomorrow. So far we have done foam pencil toppers, bracelets/necklaces, and prayer journals. Tomorrow and Friday will be duffel bags (thanks to a good friend for this idea) and sleep shirts. I was trying to keep the crafts to where they would still use them after this week. So many times Sam has come home with a craft that will go on the refrig for awhile or in his room and then I end up throwing it away because we really have no more use for it. I feel like this years crafts at least will be used a little while. Here are a few pictures for you. Just a reminder that you can click on the pictures to enlarge.
Here is Sam talking to his groups (The Quarterbacks) leader.
Music is right next door to my class so I peeked around the corner and snapped this picture.
In the morning we have cheerleaders doing our morning cheer and I couldn't resist taking a picture of these three teenage guys doing the cheer along with them.
Here are the 4th and 5th graders making their prayer journals.
It was amazing how much concentration when into the making of the prayer journals today. It was the one craft that I thought everyone would fly through and I would have some time to fill afterwards. Nope. Every class took the full 30 minutes to make their prayer journals.
