July 24, 2009

We’ve asked kids (and parents) to share their stories from VBX this week! Here’s a few of the stories that have come in so far:

“Thanks so much for such an awesome week. It has been so wonderful to see Carly’s excitement for VBX. There’s nothing like hearing a 3 year old saying their Bible points (she hasn’t quite gotten the Bible verses down yet). She has been sooo excited every night when I tell her it is time to go. I asked her what her favorite part of VBX has been and she said, “singing da songs in dat big song room with all da kids” and “watching those girls tell stories in ther swim jackets.” I didn’t know what the swim jacket deal was until I looked through the pix and saw the girls in the life jackets. Too funny!” ~Carissa

“Dear Miss Jessica, This has been a fun time. My favorite things were the Gator Games and Snacks. It ws as fin as Disney World.” ~Anthony, age 7

“What an awesome job! Thanx so much for all you do. Here’s a video clip Chuck took last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO0elStpPa0&ref=nf Hehas come home from church singing some song with a bunch of letters, but we could never figure out what he was spelling. Now we know! :-)” ~MaryAnn

“My favorite part of VBX was being on stage during the song time” ~Elyse

“Miss Jessica, I had lots of fun on the Now Team helping to lead worship for VBX. I loved playing Gator Games, and making new friends. I really liked Bible Values with Mr. Johnson. My favorite story was Moses and the Burning Bush. The snacks were really tasty. Thank you for letting me go to VBX. Love Savannah Banana”

“My favorite part of VBX was Jacques the Croc. I like when he danced while we sang.” Kylee, Green Fireflies

“My story is about games. that was my favorite part. The second night at games my dad had to put on tights. It was so funny. Be he did run fast with them on. When he took them off it was fast. I got to put on the boxers. Art was so much fun. The craft too a lot of time but it turned out good. I will keep all the crafts for ever. This was my favorit VBX ever. Thank you for all you have done.” ~Laura

“Miss Jessica, I had two things that I liked best about VBX — Jacque the Croc and Gator Games. My favorite Gator Game was the obstacle course with the lily pads, pool of balls and tunnels.” Love Hannah

“Ani asked tonight why VBS was so much shorter this year than last year. She has had WAY too much fun that the time passed WAY too quickly… We have also already made plans on how to have VBS at home. She has figured out where each area will be, snacks, crafts, bible time, games, etc… just need some more kids to come…:)” ~Janet

“Hi Miss Jess, I had a great time this week at VBX and the best part for me was getting my green “Watch for God” bracelet and singing praises to God on the NOW Team. Thank you for everything you have done to make VBX so much fun!!! And thanks to all of the volunteers for all of their hard work too!!!! Love you! Faithy

    VBX was a BLAST this year. I was honored to be a part of it and had an awesome team in pre-K crafts! Thanks everyone. It was so cool to watch our son Noah (3yrs old) in VBX this year. he LOVED it. He was so excited about it every day and evey night when came home, it was tough calming him down from the excitment for bedtime. One of the first couple nights when we got home Noah was overwhelmed with cool things about VBX to share with us. he began telling us that in Bible Bayou he learned “about this guy, Moses who was talking to Pharoe and he said to him ‘let my people go’ and Pharoe didn’t listen, so Moses had to ask him 3 times ‘let my people go” His enthusaium in telling us all about the story was so cute. On Thursday night while in Swamp Stomp, I asked Noah what his favorite part of VBX had been, he promptly held up his Sand Art necklace and said that was his favorite. he also liked singing and dancing at swomp stomp with me, seeing his cousin Caden, and being with his new friends in the Red Katydidds. Noah was sad when VBX was over and has been talking about the “swamping” ever since. Thanks for a great week and we all look forward to next year! ~Kerri, Noah’s mommy.
