Vacation Bible School (Friday)

The last day of Vacation Bible School!
Of course the girls won the penny parade!!!

A few girls from Susan's class. (the one on the left is her cousin)

Susan's class made visors for one of their crafts

Award ceremony for the ones who said the most verses in their class

The 3rd through 6th graders that came on Friday!

Back to the skit! The bomb blew and Roscoe, Ruby, and the river rat gang came out alive but fried from the bomb explosion!

The townspeople FINALLY saw through their disguises and held them responsible for taking their money! They rewarded them with pies :)

Ruby had an inside connection and only had to get confetti for a pie :)

The Friday Fair!!!!

Mom's Duck Pond

Free snow cones!

Mr. Rogers with his paintball booth! (he really is a navy recruiter) 

Fishy Wishy (they got to take home fish :)

This picture shows the rivalry in our church! (of course Michigan fans are the best but it takes people awhile to come their senses :)

Free cotton candy!

The cupcake walk!

Vacation Bible School (Mon-Thur)

Vacation Bible School never has a dull moment!
Mr. David definitely gets into it

This year instead of having preaching and a story at class time we had a contest with memorizing verses. It seemed to go well and the kids loved learning new verses.

The cookie ladies :)

Along with saying verses at class time they were able to different projects each night.

Tom and Huck on the Riverboat Adventure!

The Judge

  Yes, that is David ("Dudley") getting a pie in his face! He was awarded pies three nights in a row :)                                   

Roscoe and Ruby Fox (bad guys)

Telling his river rats to steal the money! (yes, that is Susan as a river rat:)

The whole gang

Waiting for the other bus to get in :)

Mr. David getting them riled up :)

Our new handy dandy drinking fountain!

Craft time in Susan's class

Looking evil :)

David ("dudley") fits really well into his cast as a dumb deck hand who can't speak!:)

Trying to keep Sid from tattle-tailing 

Captain Bixby getting a pie

Roscoe quoting "Shakespeare" :)

"Oh no boys and girls the bad guys captured Sid...what are we going to do?"

Roscoe is setting a bomb on the U. B. Friend Lee!!! Oh no!!! Will it blow up and the bad guys will win? You will have to come back later and find out!:)

Happy Father's Day, Dad!

You've put your heart and soul into the family life we share,
Creating something special with your wise and loving care.

You've laid down a foundation that means more than words can tell,
Giving us the blueprints for the path to living well...
(The family before Susan came along)

You've built a safe place in this world where we can always go
For help and good advice and the integrity you show.
(The father daughter bond)

You've been the kind of father who's devoted, strong, and true
And that's why there's no end to all the love we feel for you.
(Michael graduation from college and David graduation from high school)

This Father's Day really comes from the heart, Dad, because you have worked so hard and given so much out of love for each one of us.
(Dad with his favorite granddaughter, Tanith)

Thank you for being a Godly Dad who never wavers!
(Dad carrying us off to bed)
