Here is what I've been up to!!!!

Welcome to Outrigger Island -

Kicked back by the Hawaiian Island

Our Volcano

You all will have to forgive me this week - 'cause I'm sure I'm gonna be a lil' off schedule on my posting. This is VBS week at our church - our theme - OUTRIGGER ISLAND - Living God's Unshakable Truths. As you can tell we have been BUSY BUSY getting ready but ya know, we were off to such a great start when a very gracious church called from another town and said, "We've got all this great stuff - please come get it, you are welcome to it." Well I rented a U-Haul and Shaun and I went and got it. What a blessing - such cute decorations and they were so giving. Thank you Mt. Moriah Baptist Church. Well, we brought them back to our home church put our own lil' spin on a few things and this is our stage. An erupting volcano, a beautiful waterfall (kindly donated), a hut, and the list goes on - the kids absolutely loved it last night. We had 103 children Monday night and we hope for many more. My husband, Shaun, had the 10-12 year olds and he had 32 in his class - that is almost unheard of for that age group - so YEEEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!

You all please keep us in prayer and blessings to you all!!!

My church had VBS last week...it was great. I will certainly be praying that your VBS is a success. Your decorations look awesome and I love the theme.
Have a great week!

Your talents never end!! I can't even imagine how long and hard you've worked on all your beautiful props. Great job! I'm sure the kids are a blast.
I will be praying for you and your husband this week - wow, that's a lot of kids!
The Lord will reward your labors!
God bless!

Oh I love it and I know the kids do too and it will help them not only hear the Bible stories but to remember them for a lifetime!! Good job!! I so miss those days I loved VBS and plan to do that again in my "retirement years"
Good luck and God Bless all those kids your lives will touch this week

Instead of VBS this year, we're having a Kids Crusade and it's been so much fun. Tonight is the last night. I love all your decor! Sounds like you all had a blast!

I will be right over for a nice cool tropical drink! That looks so great! I thought you might of taken a quick trip to an island. I guess you might want to do that after this adventure. I am sure you had fun though.

Thank you all so much for all the well-wishes for VBS. What a blessing it has been. It will conclude on Friday night. I'll try to do better with my posting after I have time to breathe! Thank you friends! Cathy

How fun!! When my boys were little I always loved VBS. The crafts & decorating is what I liked best.....I don't think that's what VBS is all about, but always looked forward to it!! Have fun!!chery:)
