Vacation Bible School

Our church had VBS last week....this year's theme was "Outrigger Island". The kids really enjoyed the theme because they were able to dress Hawaiian style. Randy and I worked in crafts. where we helped the kids make flower leis, paper plate turtles, coffee filter jellyfish, pinwheels, and friendship bracelets. The kids brought in pennies for a mission trip. The boys and girls competed to see who could bring in the most pennies...the grand total was well over 500 pounds of pennies (which was over $900 worth). The boys lagged behind in penny count all week until the final day of VBS, when they brought in over 200 pounds to win. All of the money donated will be used for an upcoming mission trip to the Ukraine in August.
On Sunday, we topped off the week of VBS with a carnival. We had lots of free food and games, and it was a fun way to end the week.
