This week our church had VBS. It was every evening 5:30-8:30! I volunteered this year so I had all 4 kids at church late every night....so it was an interesting week in the Parnell household!
It was a fun week of meeting new friends and starting to feel "at home" in a new church. I enjoyed getting to know what kids belong to what adults and start learning names.
This was one of Avery's new friends this week. Pretty sure they stuck together all week. Avery is a little quiet so its always reassuring to watch her meet friends and enjoy it!
I was a 2nd grade leader and our character was "Pat the Bat."
The kids collected about $700 dollars to make lunches to feed kids who are in need of it. They also got to decorate the lunch bags and fill each one with a lunch.
We had a science experiment each night that went along with our theme. Here Griffin is getting to be "inside" a bubble!
listening to the Bible story..we learned all about trusting God this week....
Showing all of their new worship songs to their parents...Each class got to sing 2 songs on stage...Avery was so excited - when we were getting ready for VBS she said, " Mom, this is the first time I get to sing on stage, can I wear some of your makeup for it?" Of course I gave her just enough to make her feel extra beautiful for her debut!
another experiment...alka seltzer and water exploding!
My fellow leaders - Tammy and Amy - here we have a blob of vaseline on the ends of our noses...we had to race down the tarp and "pick up" a cotton ball with our noses!
I am officially tired but it was a great week for all of the Parnells!
