Pics from Outrigger Island

Congratulations to Terrye!!!
You have won two fabulous Selah CDs. I will contact you to get your mailing address. Thanks for introducing yourself!

We had such an awesome time at Vacation Bible School last week. Even though Mia isn't really old enough, they allowed her to participate since I was volunteering in the three-year old class. Boy, was I exhausted at the end of the week!! But it was so much fun. The kids were so cute. But I know for sure that I am not cut out for working in a daycare.

Mia just loved dancing and singing with Leila. I absolutely love this video of them dancing. Leila knows the camera is on her so she toned down her dancing a bit. She is 7 after all. :-)

Our VBS theme was Outrigger Island, so the last night was a big Hawaiian party. Here are some pics from our week...

I was trying to experiment with erasing backgrounds...

I wasn't sure what Mia was going to wear to Hawaiian night, but I remembered this little dress that Leila wore to Disney when she was 3 1/2. Of course, I had to do a side-by-side comparison. Oh, how my babies are growing up. ;-(

Leila led the Pledge of Allegiance one night. (Mix & Match clothing night, by the way). I was SOOOOO proud of her. She spoke loudly and clearly into the microphone in front of hundreds of people. My heart was bursting with pride.

I know I have already posted these pictures, but I loved the hat in the digital kit. It was too perfect for these photos.

Hi Michelle!

Looks like a very fun week at VBS! You are right...these things can be very tiring....for us big people anyway. : )

I love the pictures and the pages you created...especially the ones on the surf neat!!!

OH how fun! We did Outrigger Island at our church too and Mallory is STILL singing the songs. I just love the songs with Outrigger Island. I worked with 3 year old last year and let me just say I did NOT work with that age this year. LOL. I am now officially over crafts and I love doing that. I am not cut out for 3 year olds. HAHA.
I love all of the pics and I loved the video. The picture of you and the girls is absolutely precious!!!! Enjoy the rest of your week.

LOVE the pics! Looks like fun!

And my girl Terrye won the CD's . Too funny. I feel like Kevin Bacon and the 6 degrees of seperation. Too funny how through blogging the world can seem a little smaller. Love it!
