Vacation Bible School 2015

The third week of June was Vacation Bible School at our church.  I helped last year, but Parker was unable to come because of just starting therapy for his SPD.

I was so excited to go together this year.  I helped teach a 2nd grade class and Parker was in the three year old class.  Our theme was called "Journey Off the Map" - all about exploring and understanding that Jesus is our guide.  It was a really fun theme - so many neat decorations and features.  The music was great and Parker and I are still singing all of the songs.

Headed to church to start off the week.  
My 2nd grade class was full of 19 kids and 17 of them were boys.  I will let you do the math to figure out how many girls there were. Yeah that's right...wow - they were an energetic bunch.  I was beat by the end of the week. 

I snuck a picture of Parker at snack time on the first day.  
I'm not sure how many children attended, but it was a few hundred. We had lots o' kids!
One morning, Parker was so excited to spot a bunny on our way into the building.  
Hanging out by the treehouse in my classroom.
Over 3 feet tall - oh my!  He's come along way from the 20 1/4" at birth.
VBS can really wear a boy out (and a Mommy). 

I usually dropped off Parker at his room first, but two mornings I let him come into the sanctuary/"Worship Rally" with me while the kids were arriving. He loved walking around on the stage.  


Parker and his buddy Laurel that helped in his class all week.  She was one of the youth that worked with the 3 year olds.  She was so sweet to take such good care of Parker.  

My friend Andrea (Crosswhite Photography) and fellow Mom of a 3 year old boy took pictures at VBS.  She sent these to me and I just adore them of my sweet, sweet son!  


What a week!

I'm so proud of Parker and how he handled the week. With all of the kids, the noise and everything going on, he was on sensory overload. He was really brave and such a trooper.  I'm grateful for the memories we made together this week.  The first of many VBS weeks for us! 
Until we meet again...
