This week is Vacation Bible School week at our church, and the theme is the Big Apple -- New York City. I thought that was a fun theme to go with, and I'm interested to see how they're tying that in with Scripture (as I'm sure they are).
This is the first time that my kids are going to VBS and I'm not working.
Can I just be real for a minute? This has been a real treat for me.
I have had so many things going on, several things to prepare (i.e. a possible event at our church that I'm working on, new school year curriculum planning and shopping, new classes at co-op I'll be teaching, a women's conference in September that I need to prepare lessons/keynote addresses and help coordinate, moving my sweet Mother-in-Love into her new house...and let's just throw life on top of all that too...whew). Let's just say I'm very thankful for this reprieve.
Other than a meeting I have tomorrow morning, which I am very much looking forward to, I have spent every morning this week at a desk in a local coffee shop with my laptop, a pile of books, Pandora radio, and a tall, dark, and tasty coffee drink to accompany me. :-)
It's been wonderful.
Anyway, I have to post a picture of my two youngest boys from yesterday, which was "Wacky Tourist Day" at VBS. They're such good sports.

The oldest one is volunteering, but was not about to dress up like this. Middle school...go figure.
I'm loving my kiddos' childhood. And in spite of my faults and weaknesses, I hope they are too.
