VBS Huejotzingo 2015

prep work - drawing faces for one day´s snack
There is no doubt that having two young children makes planning and running the VBS
more challenging.  How was their experience of the VBS?  Well...mixed.  The days before the VBS week are typically laced with preparation, but this year was a little different, because we had other activities also going on Saturday and Sunday.  The actual days of VBS are almost entirely devoted to all things VBS. However, we did our level best to also spend time focused only on our kids so that they wouldn´t hear, "I can´t play with you because I have to finish ..."  They both did really well with the complete disruption of their schedule and the difficulty of sharing their parents with 40 + other children.  However, we could see the struggle it was for Abish, even though he mostly enjoyed having the other kids around.  During the hours of VBS, he almost constantly wanted to be with me or Abraham, often

asking to be held.  He didn't want to do any of the crafts, but entered enthusiastically into the singing.  Leilani patiently put up with kids jiggling her feet and hands and sticking their faces in hers.  She was very popular.  She also held up well without good naps, because she doesn't go to sleep well or stay asleep when there is activity (she wants to be part of all that's going on).

the songs were always fun

So the VBS was a mixed bag for the two of them, but it did seem to be mostly a positive experience  We do so appreciate your prayers for all of us.
