Beach Blast VBS!

Hi kids! I feel like I'm going to be dropping the ball on you today, haha. There's just so much going on in my world. June is probably going to be the craziest month of the year for me for the REST OF MY LIFE. It's one big event, one project, one more thing to do after another. This week I have a huge project to undertake. I'm building one of THESE:

Okay, so I'm not building an ark, haha. And I don't think my parade float will be nearly as awesome as this one, but I still have to build one for our vacation bible school this summer. Our theme is Beach Blast:

So we're going to recreate a beach scene on the back of my dad's car trailer. I think it's going to be a lot of fun, but I have LOTS of sign making, flyer printing, and trailer decorating to do in the next few days. We'll be tossing out leis, mini beach balls, and flip flop erasers with our information on them. And there will be candy of course! Thank God for Oriental Trading :) We're going to Party City tomorrow night to pick up the rest of the supplies, and hopefully Thursday afternoon/evening we'll see it come together!

For those who don't know, I'm co-directing our VBS for the littles this year, and up until now I've been a bit preoccupied with Evelyn's birthday party and other events. But now that all of that is out of the way I'm in full on Bleach Blast mode! I'm getting really excited about it. :) Tentatively, VBS is scheduled to be at our new church building! Woohoo! That could change, and we won't know until the last minute if the building will be ready for us, but I think it would be awesome to be able to use our new facility for this wonderful ministry. (BTW, our church has set a new goal to be IN the building by October 1st!)

Of course, Vacation Bible School would be no fun at all if we don't have children to come and participate! EVERYONE is welcome - whether you belong to our church, another church, or no church at all. VBS is for children who have completed Preschool - 6th grade. If you know any kids in this age range, PLEASE send them our way! :D

Beach Blast VBS!
July 17-22
6:30-8:30 pm 
Beach Blast BBQ family night on Friday evening!

Hope to see some of your littles there! (I know most of us have or know kids too small still. Darn!) 

Now I'm off to search for some cardboard so I can cut some letters out. Fun, fun! :)
