Vacation Bible School

June 21, 2011

We had vacation bible school last week at our church.  This was Colton’s first year!  I was super excited about starting this yearly tradition, but a little nervous about his reaction to going.  When were in church he does not like going to the nursery/children’s church so I was worried that when we got to the church last week for VBS he was upset because we were not going into the sanctuary.  However, he proved my worries un necessary… he LOVED it!  Each day he would say, “go to bible school today momma!”


This was him the first night siting across the table from one of his future schoolmates!  There were several 3 year olds in the class that will be joining him this fall at Gateway.  It was a great opportunity for him to get to know some of the other kids that will be in his class.

The teacher (Mrs. Bridgett) was absolutely wonderful!  She was the epitome of patient and kind.  She did such a wonderful job with tailoring the lessons to their age group.  Each night they had yummy snacks, fun coloring sheets, a great lesson, crafts and games!

I think this game was his favorite!

The last night we went down to the family life center to enjoy some fun time in a bounce house and inflatable slide.


As crazy as it may sound I think that the highlight of Colton’s week was riding in the church bus!  Seriously!  We got off the bus back up at the church and he said, “Oh mom that was fun!  I loved riding the bus!”

It only took 20 minutes and this little guy to convince Colton to get on the slide, but once he we did he had fun!
