Today starts my favorite week of the year:
Vacation Bible School!
The name brings back childhood memories of red Kool-Aid mustaches and sandwich cookies on napkins. I remember our church would have a contest between the boys and the girls: who brought in the most money. Kids came in with sandwich bags bulging with pennies, their hands smelling like spare change. One year there was a train in the front that moved across the stage on a string as the money came in.
I get to work in the 1st grade class tomorrow with my son. It's a nature park theme, and our room is called "The Foxes." I considered getting myself a red shirt and writing on it "Foxes," but then decided against it...
I've realized in this post that I really don't know how to spell the word "sandwich." Auto Correct is certainly my friend.
What about you? What comes to mind when you remember VBS as a child? What do your kids look forward to?
