Crock Dock VBSThis week was great with VBS. Our children’s director knew the perfect job for me, helping out with the pre-school crafts. VBS started at 9am, and I didn’t have kids ’til 10:45 and our 2 groups coming through were done at 11:45.

Monday was a little crazy with not knowing how many kids would officially be there until everything started on Monday with late registration of kids. We were prepared with supplies to be split up between 2 rooms, and had to split everything between 3 once all the kids were in there. That was hectic and had me leaving stressed and my back was killing me from bending over so much to reach down to the little tables to hand out supplies, and then cleaning up afterwards didn’t help my back at all.

Tuesday-Thursday were great. I took care of my back more and everything was organized and went smoothly. We also had lots more volunteers around which helped with the 5 minute transition between the 2 groups. We had to clean up after the first group and set up for the second in such a short time, but we did it!

Today was stressful again for me. Not because of VBS, but because of my lack of sleep, and having an emotional day the day before. Thursday was busy with me staying later at the church, then I was able to soak in the tub for a little bit, and tried to fit a nap in to my day before we had junior highers over for Bible study. I really needed a longer nap, but I knew soaking in the tub came first. I’m thinking that is a daily ritual I will need throughout the rest of my pregnancy to help save my back. So needless to say, I was not in the best mood today and felt like I was rude to everyone I came in contact with. I was able to take a nap today which helped, and I’m already looking forward to sleep tonight, and getting to wake up on my own time in the morning.

Overall I think VBS was a success. Tim made a great video of the week, and it was fun to see everyone for the week.

    Wow, that’s a cool video. You have a lot of kids that come to VBS. It seems like a cool theme too and it looks like it was a week of a lot of fun.

    I’ve already volunteered in one VBS this year, which was at my dad’s church. He writes his own VBS stuff and this year his church had a journeying with God sort of theme.

    At my own church, we’re doing some space theme. I’m really looking forward to it. When we were planning for Friends Day, our VBS director had the teens pick out the songs we’re doing because not all of the songs are that great. Those that picked the songs know what kids are looking for I think because we have been going to VBS or helping with it for 9 years or longer.

    I’m really excited for the plays we’re doing for VBS. I’m playing a bad guy who creates a Bible blaster to destroy all the Bibles on earth. I’m not exactly excited to be playing a person who wants to destroy all the Bibles on earth, but I think it’s a change. I don’t think most people would think of me as the bad guy, so it will be interesting.

    I hope you get a lot of rest tonight. Good thing you can sleep in. And I also hope your back feels better too.
