Vacation Bible School

This year I volunteered to teach a class for Vacation Bible School. Our theme was Egypt. We had an amazing week in ancient Egypt learning all about Joseph's journey from prison to palace. I am so glad that I was a part of this VBS. It was a lot of work, but all worth it in the end. The kids, teens, and teachers were all exhausted by Friday! Here are some pictures (most of them taken by Melissa) from the week and the finale party.

My Kindergarten Class

Haylee's Class

My kids in Market Time

This is a free time when the kids could eat snack, learn to make bricks, make their bible verse coin, dress up, make necklaces, pyramids, etc...they got to choose.

After Market, my class would go outside for games then come back in for story time. During story time the kids would learn about Joseph's journey by Joseph!

After story time we would go to our classroom to learn about our bible verse and reflect on the day. We ended with craft time right before our closing. The kids had SO much fun. I think my favorite time was opening and closing. The music was AWESOME!!

This is how we would all look first thing in the morning.

After VBS...

I tried giving the girls suckers with hopes that they wouldn't fall asleep until we got home. As you can didn't work. She ate her sucker and passed out with the stick in hand!

Friday evening was the Finale Party. The kids brought their parents and performed all the songs they had learned. We had bouncies, dress up, hot dogs, sno-cones, and a camel!

Haylee and Briley taking a camel ride! Haylee thought the camel would be pink. She found out that she was wrong! :o) If you ask her about a camel now, she will tell you "Camels STINK!!"

Egyptian girls!
