Today was our last night of VBS. We had an awesome week with the third and fourth graders. Aaron and I were both teachers and we had a class of 10 kiddos. I only have a few pictures, and somehow my kids are in most of them.
Taylynn and Preston are too young for VBS, but they still had a good time with some of the youth girls. They would get so tired around one o'clock, but they made it until 9pm then got a second wind everynight after we picked them. We will be working on getting them back into a bedtime routine the rest of the week.
The kids in our group were so sweet and we were so proud of them. We had five children who are in the midest of talking with their parents and praying about becoming a new believers. I feel like we did teach them something, but the truth is they thought me something. They are so brave to talk about God and not shy to mention Jesus to their friends. I love their honesty and looking at the view from their little eyes.
I lead third and fourth grade in AWANA and I hope all the VBS kids come back in the fall. We had some new faces and I hope we made an impact to where they will want to come back. I know I did for one little girl, after the first night she came back with a drawing for me saying I was her favorite teacher. It made my day.
Working with children has always been something I enjoy, but it has been harder since we now have our own children. I feel God has lead me to work with our youth group and I am so excited. We are going to meet with the youth and leaders on Sunday and hopefully find a good place to fit in. I'll let you know.
