VBS Gone Wild!

Is that an OXYMORON?  Is it possible for Vacation Bible School to be a place for a mom to go wild?  Let's just say I see a lot of moms and dads having a ball singing and dancing in the park with their kids.  Adults screaming cheers to kids to run relays with water balloons or eggs. I wonder if I'm having more fun than the children?! Our kids' pastors  are dressed as mad scientists doing strange experimements that involve water balloons, eggs, orbs (what's an orb?)" just stick your hand in this jar here" (that looks like water) but it's full of clear orbs and feels like slimy eyeballs.  Or, "Here, close your eyes and taste this!".

They are using all kinds of experiments and skits to get the word of God into the hearts and minds of these tiny people. So, instead of staying home the last week of school, organizing and cleaning, we are all whooping it up in the park, making tie-dye shirts, getting soaked in the sponge throw and looking forward to the red team/green team tug of war after the bbq and the grand finale - someone gets to put a pie in the kids' pastor's face! AHAAAAAAAHAHA!  Too bad it won't be me, but I'll be sure to have my husband ready with the camera.


  1. I love how much fun you and the kids have had all summer and haven't even left town! How sweet that your boys participate as well.
