VBS at R.D. Rains
The week we were at R.D. Rains Rd. went really well. There weren't many kids on this road, but we had a blast. We had no more than 10 kids each day. When we got their each afternoon, we set up a canopy tent that someone had graciously donated to us in a free patch of grass and went to get the kids. After beginning with some VBS songs there was always story time first, followed by a craft for the kids to do and some recreation time to play games. We finished up with snack and some more VBS songs (when our CD player was working for us) and prayer. It was super hot that week, so we made sure to include water games in every recreation time we had. This was the week of the 4th of July, so of course we went to watch the fireworks too! We finished up the VBS on Thursday and had all of Friday and the rest of the weekend off so that we could have time relaxing or spending time with our families. This week of VBS went really well and we had so much fun with these wonderful kiddos!
