Vacation Bible School
VBS started last night. I love VBS. So many people come together to love kids and share Jesus. I'm amazed at the number of people from our church who get so excited about this. It takes a lot of folks to really pull it off well (including many who work behind the scenes). How can a kid not love VBS? The snacks and drinks have come long way since I was a kid. We used to have that nasty "Church of Christ Kool-Aid" -- you know the stuff that never had quite enough sugar in it. The only thing worse was the "Church of Christ coffee" -- the stuff that sat in the urn and cooked for hours. Yuck!
Memorable moments of the night: I spent 20 minutes looking for a kid who disappeared. Six or seven other guys and I fanned out around the property -- this is a big building -- lots of places to hide. The kid has an attitude, he doesn't want to be here. We finally found the little rascal hiding out on the Day Care playground. I was starting to think about how I was going to have to call his Mom: "Um, Ma'am did you want to pick up the same number of kids that you dropped off?"
