Vacation Bible School 2011 and What We’ve Been Up To Lately

Were you wondering about me (again)?  We have been preparing for Vacation Bible School for the last several months, but the month or so before VBS things get pretty crazy.  This year has been no exception, BUT today was Day One at “The Big Apple Adventure” and things went pretty well!

We had a HUGE set on the stage.  A (talented) woman in our church worked for weeks on it… the Preacher built all the support frames, and I’m proud to say Tyler made the “taxis” and the “jumbo-tron”. (The set turned out so big it blocked our big screens, so we made a “Times Square” jumbo-tron and it worked GREAT!)

Other than that… Tyler and I have been doing a few projects around the house.  We took a HUGE load of stuff to the dump.  We looked like the “Beverly Hillbillies” pulling up, I’m sure.  Most of this was in David’s shed.  He knew we were going to clean it out and he didn’t fuss that we got rid of so much. Ha!

After a full day of work in the yard and cleaning out the shed… we took Maddie on a date at Chili’s. 

I took their picture…

… and then she asked to take ours.  She gave me instructions to move to the other side of the table so she could take a picture of Papa Dave and I together…

She did pretty good!

This girl loves her corn.

That set is awesome! I have never seen anything like it. Tyler did a fabulous job on it! I hope you all are having fun!

So glad you posted! Was beginning to wonder if you'd decided to take a Project 365 OFF! Haha!

That is an awesome VBS display and Tyler did a wonderful job on those taxi's! Our NYC VBS is next month - too bad we're not closer or we could swipe some of your all's decorations :D

What a wonderful stage - I can't imagine how many hours must have gone into that! And Maddie did a super job with the picture - a budding photographer. :) blessings, marlene

Great materials to work with! Some of my favorite memories are from Bible School in the early 40's. We didn't have that much to work with but some of the teachers were pretty 'crafty'. Fun times!

My daughter's VBS two weeks ago was also the Big Apple Adventure. She loved it. Those of you who pull it off deserve far more credit than you get!
