Today was the fourth day of our VBS. When it was done, I went to the doorway to hand out fliers inviting the parents to come tomorrow for the finale. A mom was waiting at the door wondering if her son was there and I had to coax her to go into the church and look. She found her son, but he was having such a good time he didn't want to leave so she stayed a bit and Mary Beth started talking to her. The mom explained that she had been in the neighborhood to get a haircut and the next thing she knew, her son was gone, attracted to the music and kids at our church! But she seemed happy that he was there and indicated they'd return tomorrow.
Each child gets to have his picture taken in our rocket and take home a printed copy on the last day.
Today we had 40 kids for the 3rd day in a row. I had 14 in my class of 10-14 year-olds. They have been really well behaved and attentive in my classes each day.
