VBS 2009 - Riverchase Edition

Ok so our VBS was a month ago, at least I'm finally getting around to it. I just couldn't leave it out because it was that awesome this year (it's always pretty good)!! This year Alex and I were roped into....Oh, I mean we had the pleasure of being VBS "Rangers" to the 6th grade girls and boys. Wow, was that interesting but mostly it was FUN! I haven't been around kids that age in a long time. I honestly think they have more energy than my girls do!! Seriously!! Alex ate it up. He was an excellent "Ranger." He actually was the biggest kid in our group. I love seeing him let loose and have fun like that!! I'm thinking I'll just handle these preschool-grade school years and hand our girls over to him when they hit pre-teen age. He's pretty good with them.

Anyway, our theme centered around The Nature of God. The decorations were incredible if I do say so myself. My girls talked all the way home every night about it all.

Me and my girlies in our VBS shirts!!
Mrs. Womack made this absolutely amazing "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" area and I can't begin to tell you how talented she and so many people in our church are!!
I just have to share with you my Bee Hive. Alex and I helped a very tiny bit one evening with the decorations and this is one of our contributions!! Aren't the little bees cute??

This is our Children's minister, Mr. Tony believe it or not! He was the crazy Doctor that led the kids in science experiments each night and related them to the Bible story for each evening!! He chose to wear the wig but the teeth are all his. Just kidding Tony!!

And finally here are our awesome 5th-6th graders!! They were a hoot. Alex gave all of our kids nicknames. They loved it!! We can't wait to see what they come up with for next year!!
