First day of Vacation Bible School!

Right. Helping out in VBS this year is going to be a lot easier than it was last year. They put me in a class with another person--he's the main teacher and I'm the assistant this time. Tell you what, not having to stand up all day is going to make this week so very much easier than when I was helping in crafts.

The class I'm helping with is of 5th and 6th graders...we have 3 boys and 3 girls, who promptly went about sorting themselves into two groups. It was fun to watch everyone, even if the 'group' part of things went a little mad while they were deciding group names and personal nicknames. (Thankfully, us teachers are allowed to call them by the name we remember--which will be on a nametag that they're wearing! XD)

And oh my stars, we had so many folks today that we shoulda had more tables and chairs in the fellowship hall where we were eating supper. That is excellent! With any luck, it'll happen again. We did send them out with a 'task' of sorts: to bring friends who wanted to join VBS. Nothing that we're going to count against anyone if they don't, of course, but it seemed to make them even more excited. Which is great. It's meant to be enjoyed and fun.

Can't wait to see how it goes the rest of the week!
