Elisabeth was a participant this time instead of a helper.
Every day began with a devotion and ended with song practice in the sanctuary.
One day, instead of an opening devotion, there was a Christian mime. Now understand these three things:
- My children do not like clowns.
- My children absolutely do not like mimes.
- Elisabeth does not like to be the center of attention.
The mime was reenacting Noah’s ark. It’s a pretty tricky reenactment, so it required audience participation. Poor, poor Elisabeth.
She was the elephant.
Doesn’t she look thrilled?
She can’t stop smiling.
The clown is getting awfully close to Elisabeth!
Close the ark!
And the boat was a-rockin’!
Sway, Bean, sway! (Did she move? I think I saw her shift a little.)
Open the ark!
The elephant is free!
Sorry about the blur.
Emily and Elijah somehow ended up in the same class.
Ellie hung out in the mother’s room, playing with the contents of Mama’s purse. These two girls would have hung out in the trailer, but the police chased us away from our spot on the street where we were told to park. Instead, we stayed at a member’s house, so there was a small commute.
Here is Elisabeth’s class painting backdrops.
Hannah once again took care of the littlest children, not entirely happy to sit still with everyone else.
Hannah, Marissa, and Rebecca:
Emily, Elijah, and Elisabeth:
Sing it, Boys!
“At least I’m not an elephant today.”
Hannah’s little buddy:
Hannah was so helpful with the “out-of-the-box” learners, that one of the ladies brought her a thank you gift.
We understand out-of-the-box learners!
There you have it! The whole crew!
Another fun week of Vacation Bible School!
