VBS and Ministry Trip

 This post is long overdue, but as you'll see, I really haven't had a chance, so even though it's a month ago - Here's our VBS! We used a "route 55" theme - road trips, USA...Above is craft time -
 Between trying to help Aaron, play piano, tell a missionary story, watch Anna and Esther, I "bit off more than I could chew", so Esther hung out with the preschool class some and had a great time following them around. "VBB" was as close as she could say VBS :)
 Aaron did the Bible time - Several children were saved during the week and some were baptized in the weeks following, so we were so grateful for the Lord's working. It was one of the best VBS's ever!
 Game time -
 Snack and verse memory time -
 Rally time - Aaron does a great job at making things fun and exciting :)
 We wanted to say thank you to all the people who worked so hard to make everything happen, so we made a cake for the closing evening.
 A week after VBS was over, we went with a few other people from church to help out a church in Badger, MN with some construction. Above is Esther at Culvers - one of the highlights of driving through WI :) !
 Driving through Duluth, MN
 More Duluth -
 Aaron and Johnny putting up insulation - they insulated, wired, and sheetrocked a couple rooms that had water damage.
 Aaron :)
 They had a potluck in Badger with the church people. We knew some of them from VBS last summer, so it was fun to catch up.
 I thought I'd end with a few pictures of the girls, I meant to turn it, but I must have forgotten to save the change...
 Esther can't read, but she likes pictures :)
 Anna in a hand-me-down -
 Anna is getting so big!
 We love to hear her laugh!
4th of July pictures will have to wait...
