I'm glad the week of Vacation Bible School is over, because it doesn't feel much like "vacation" when the kids and I have had to be up and out of the house earlier than on school days. But, I am also so glad we took part in the week of VBS; particularly, I am glad Madeline had the opportunity to attend. This was a good preview to her upcoming preschool experience. While she was a little droopy and clingy on the first day, Maddy eventually warmed up to her young group leaders and joined in on all the activities.

A Vacation from Vacation Bible School
Madeline is near the center of this photo, in her "church shoes" and red party hat.
Throughout the week, Madeline would break out in VBS songs. Each group also learned a cheer, and Maddy joyously repeated what she thought hers said: "One! Two! Three! Bless-ed Chim-i-ney!" I could tell she was really thinking spiritual things, too, which, I guess, should be the point of VBS. One day in the car, she told me with a big sigh, "Mom, I really don't GET Jesus... or Superman."
