VBS week

Yes, those three little letters that strike fear into church workers everywhere.  But this VBS week was a little different because it was the first time that J and A would be at VBS.  Aside from the fact that they could ride in with me in the mornings (meaning I would have the requisite number of people in the car to drive on the HOV lanes … yeah that was a pretty exciting part for me), it was nice to have them at work during the day.

A looked excited to see me in the hall

J, not so much.

J also wasn't thrilled with with band.

But he liked the blindfolded obstacle course

Tuesday was Crazy Hat Day.

So of course I had to break this bad boy out.

A was in the competition for best hat (please excuse the over-zoomed cell phone photo)

A workin' the Hokie look for Team Spirit Day.

And once again, she was in the competition for best dressed.

A has the moves.  And once again, J, not so much.

On Friday, we had a van full, taking two of their cousins. J took the opportunity to give everybody a dinosaur lesson.

And it was crazy hair day. Again, J, not so much.

It's always nice when the city decides to dig up your main sidewalk during VBS. With only one hour notice.

Finally, our Family Life Minister and our Youth Minister had a friendly wager regarding whether the boys or girls could raise more money during the week for our Missions programs.  At the end of the week, the girls had raised $900 more than the boys.  But since we handily beat our total from last year (and since one of the girl’s mothers had contributed $800, kinda skewing the results), our Senior Pastor decided that both Ministers should have to pay up.

This is what they had to do:

    J and the boy member of our pair who were born the same day would get along nicely. B didn’t enjoy the upbeat VBS praise music with choreographed movements. At all. And when I came to pick him up he was also registering his dislike by sitting down with his hands over his ears. He is not a fan of dress-up days either.

    And a good time was had by all.

    And, by the way, I enjoyed it when my two guys rode with me back and forth to work for an entire summer.

    Hey, one of the girl’s mother’s cheated. Sounds like a recount is in order.

    Keep ’em straight.
