We had a very fun and very exhausting week. Our church held VBS this week. Justin did most of his volunteering behind the scenes. He helped build the amazing sets we had this year. The theme was an Australian Outback theme. The train even had a fog machine inside so it looked as though real steam was coming out. The amazing animal crates were built by Justin and our sons. They used the wood from our old fence. I did all my volunteering in the kitchen. I wish I had taken pictures of all the snacks we made. On some days we feed over 150 kids plus other volunteers. My kids had such a great time. It's so nice to hear all the wonderful things they have learned at random times throughout our day. At the aquarium today Lukas mentioned that Jesus walked on water. Love it. We can't wait until next year.


  1. Love the pics! I stole a couple :) Yes, the sets were awesome! Justin did a great job...also with helping little boys that needed their Mommy! I was definitely impressed with how much the kids learned.

  2. I'd love to get copies of these pictures - the ones with the props and the ones of the kids. My boys had such a great time. Thank you (and Justin) for all of your work.

    That picture of Lukas, Thomas, and Porter is such a great one. Love it!

  3. My kids loved it too! I asked the kids what they learned and Jacie said, "that Jesus was a lamb" and Henry said, "that koala bears eat their own poo!" lol!!! Lori
