Day 4

The last day of VBS. Everything went smoothly, and the closing campfire went well. We drew our "Visitor Challenge" prize packages, and our son won one of them, which doesn't seem quite right, so we'll share them with another kid that brought some guests.

The adults seemed more interested in s'mores around the campfire than the kids did! I think the biggest hit with the older boys was when I went to the car and brought out my basketball pump. There were five or six balls bouncing around, and every one of them needed a little air. Three of them were in my transportation car, but I didn't have the heart to stop the game until about 8:45 since they were having so much fun.

All the crafts are done; all the songs are sung. VBS is over for another year. But rather than have a sermon this Sunday we'll have our closing program. It will mostly be a regular service, but we'll have VBS songs instead of our regular hymns, kids will take the offering, and we'll have a couple of VBS related presentations. To wrap everything up, we'll schedule one final director's meeting and one final teacher's meeting to give everyone a chance to talk about what went right and what went wrong. I'll post about those after they happen.
