Pandamania: VBS 2011

During the last week of July, we had the fun opportunity to participate in Vacation Bible School at our church. This year it was PANDAMANIA and it was Quinn’s first time to get to REALLY be a part of it! He had his own “crew” and traveled around to all of his stationed from 9 to Noon all week long!

The theme definitely helped motivate my little “character obsessed” guy…and, after day one, he couldn’t wait for the rest! He would come home each day singing the songs and telling me all about his Bible stories…and was always so proud to show me the things that he had made!

I love that he got to be a part of such a fun week (and that I did too…I helped with registration and was the unofficial photographer for the week) and that he learned so much about how GOD is WILD about him!!!

And, since Mommy was volunteering, Nash got to be a part of the fun too! He did so good in his “Panda Paws” class all week! And, his teachers (Sweet Debbie and Carrie) made it so easy for me to leave him! Pandamania 2011 176

I am so thankful for Erin and the time that she spent leading my little man all week! What a precious seed that she helped water in his heart!!!

And, in the midst of all of the activities that were going on at church, we also had our own Panda fun at home! We attempted this Panda Bread and FAILED miserably!!! Oh well…we tried and had fun! I think it looked hopeful before it was baked…but, post oven was very questionable. My sweet Quinn saw it and said, “Mommy, that bread looks SOOOOO good!” Bless his heart! Pandamania 2011 126

After it was all over, Quinn was so disappointed. He said, “It’s too bad that Bible School is over until next year!” But, I’m so thankful that we have VBS to look forward to each summer! I know it will always be something that will mold and shape my boys into the amazing men that God wants them to be!!!
