Vacation Bible School

VBS- Day 0

Here are some pictures of my classroom while we were decorating yesterday.

Before we started. . .



One of my helpers, Cody (Mark's son), hanging a decoration. . .



My wonderful husband helped us decorate. Without him, the room would not have turned out as awesome as it did because I don't do ladders (I am afraid of heights). Here is TJ hanging vines from the ceiling. . .




TJ, Cody, and Thad (another helper) working hard. . .



The finished room. The picture doesn't show it, but there is a dinosaur nest at the base of the tree on the left. My helpers gathered sticks, weeds, and rocks in order to build it. There is also a real tree in the opposite corner of the room that my youth workers built another nest in. They found a stray dinosaur so they put him in there. It turned out great!

VBS- Day 1

I had 15 boys in class today. It was less than I expected, but we still had a great time! Today's lesson was on Creation, and the boys really got into it! The boys are split into 2 teams, and the teams compete against each other for points. They earn points for various things, such as memorizing Scripture, bringing their Bible to class, bringing a friend, good behavior, etc. They love the competition and it helps with behavior control because bad behavior takes points away from their team. Here are some pictures from our Bible lesson today. I had them practice their Bible verse by writing it in shaving cream. Each team raced against the other to write the entire verse out first. Both teams earned candy and had a great time learning Scripture!

What a fun way to learn. It looks like everyone had fun and the room looked great.
