VBS Kickoff

Today kicks off Vacation Bible School at our church. The theme this year is Crocodile Dock, where fearless kids shine God's light. Jamie and Linda and Jamie's friend Lance are going and I am a leader as well. Noah and Mina get loved on in the nursery while we are there. So far the kids are having a great time. Wednesday night is family night with a train ride, inflatables, free food, and face painting. It is a blst and the kids are so excited to go. It was really neat to be able to be a part of it. I had missed it all of the other years because I was working. I guess that is one of the perks of being laid off, I get to participate in all of the kiddos' activities.

On another note, I am still not done with my thesis paper. At this rate it will take me at least two more weeks. Sigh, I am tired of spending every evening away from my family. At least I will get a break this weekend. We were supposed to go see Harry Potter last weekend, but with the babies being sick we didn't want to leave them, we would feel too guilty. So we are going this weekend. One of the kids' favorite baby-sitters will be here and they love spending time with her. I am very much looking forward to the break.
