God Rocks!

This song has been in my head all week, along with many others like "Big House". (I'm not even sure if that is the right title or not.) The reason why....teaching VBS!! I have had so much fun during this crazy week getting to know 29 amazing 4 & 5 year olds, watching them learn about God, and of course getting to do this side by side with a very dear friend...Amy!
It is hard for me to describe this VBS experience, let me just say, this VBS is nothing like any other VBS I attended as a child! I had many excuses not to teach this week (child's birthday this weekend, getting ready for vacation next week, crazy schedules for a 3 year old and 1 year old, etc, etc....)
The Lord has AGAIN proved me wrong in trying to do what I want over what HE wants. I feel like I have gotten the blessing from all of this, not to mention the 3,000+ others that I know the Lord has spoken to this week.
Can I say how cool it is to see these little kids pre-k kids getting, understanding, and loving what VBS is all about....JESUS! What is even cooler, my almost 3 year old is coming home with little snippets that she has learned. (warning: side note story......Tonight she was helping me cook, I told her the red lights on the stove meant HOT, so be careful. She then told me that red represented Jesus' blood! WOW!!) I am just so humbled and blessed that we are part of such an awesome church that cares so much for KIDS! So much time and effort has been put into every last detail of VBS to make it so perfect.

Here is a little eye candy from one day.....
