summer break week #8

VBS started this week at church, and Jesse took our girls to participate in the fun activities and lessons.
Every day the kids started with singing songs and going over a memory verse.  After that, they were split up by age groups and taken to centers: games, crafts, a story/skit, a video lesson, and snack time.  Lani and Evie were together when they split up and Jesse stayed with Addy helping her rotate to the different centers.  They came back together at the end with the rest of the group to sing more songs and dismiss.  My girls always enjoy VBS.  This year was no exception.  :)

Day 36 (Monday) of my girls' summer break:: for game time at VBS, Addy played on the grass with the kids her age.  Lani and Evie played red light/green light.  For craft time, Addy stamped; Lani and Evie made an ornament.  Snack time included popcorn, kix, and oreo treats.

On day 37 (Tuesday), I took my girls to the library in the morning.  It was a puppet show this week.  It was a cute story about a lazy grasshopper and the lesson he learns about planning ahead like ants who are always working hard and storing food for the winter.
That night Jesse took our girls to VBS again.
