Vacation Bible School

Pin It Now!
My kids went to Vacation Bible School last week. I get so overwhelmed when I drop them off on the first day. Not by the decorations. Not by the long line to check them in. Not because they partying from 9am to 1pm. Not because they will be completely messed up by all the sugar they eat while there -- especially on the first day. Not by the fact that I know they will be learning a lot about Jesus during the week. I get overwhelmed by all the volunteers. I honestly get choked up when I see them and think of what a blessing they are to my children. And what a blessing they are to this Totally Desperate Mom of a 6, 4, and 2 year old. It is so nice for me to get a break from the motherhood (at least 2/3rds of a break anyway since Jordis stays with me) and to know where they are and what they are doing (besides eating sugar). Thank you to all of you out there who have ever volunteered at a Vacation Bible School! THANK YOU!
