VBS 2011

This past week we had Vacation Bible School at our old church. This is the 3rd year in a row that Chyenne participated. Cohen's first year. They both had a blast. The theme was "Son Surf/Beachy". So fun. Our age group (pre-k and kinder) was called the Silly Seals. Quite fitting for our little bunch. Chyenne especially enjoyed the company of her best "boyfriend" Levi. Mr Levi is 2 days younger than Chyenne and they have been friends since they were 5 months old.
A flash back to Chyenne and Levi's first playdate:

and now pics from VBS.

Overall, VBS was a success. The first day, Chyenne was the first one to answer EVERY question after story time. Questions asked: "Who is Jesus?" -God's son. "Who is God's son?" -Jesus. "Who told the sheppards of Jesus?" -the angels. "Where was 12 year old Jesus when his mother, Mary, couldn't find him?" -at God's house. Church is his father's house. *heart melting*
We learned several lessons about Jesus this past week. "How do we know that you can trust Jesus?" -because he never tells lies and he always tells the truth. Chyenne is excited to spread the word of Jesus. :) Cohen can successful say "Jesus", "Amen", and "Thank You Jesus!" aww!

Their favorite part of VBS was definitely the music. Chyenne's new favorite song is "Jump, Shout, Give a High Five...". She sings every word and dances. ADORABLE.
They also thoroughly enjoyed crafts. This past week they decorated beach balls, made message bottles with colored sand, made and decoratde a wall hanging with the infamous 'Footprints' poem, made an ocean scene on a water bottle, made and decorated a star fish wind chime, made and decorated a fish on a fishing pole, colored a few sheets of paper, and made cards for a few members of the church who are sick.

They also played tons of games, learned a ton of songs and dances, and listened to many lessons. Great fun.

Here's a pic that I just adore from Chyenne and Levi's first VBS. Aren't they adorable?!
