It's that time of year again...Vacation Bible School! The kids are actually signed up for three over the course of the Summer (more on that later) so it was nice to begin with the one at our very own parish.

I value these each year and not because I am rid of some children for the morning hours (do the math - the two high-maintenance ones are still at home). I enjoy it because they spend three hours each day learning about God, bonding with one another (I always try to make sure they're in the same "tribe") and other kids, and interacting with members of our parish. This last one is so important. Today when #1 raised her had to answer a question and the pastor called her by name...that's what we're striving for. We're pretty much past the days of priests being around all the time for parties, house blessings, family dinners, like when we were growing up in the faith. So, we have to interact and know them on their turf. It happens to be our spiritual home so that's just fine with me :0)

Our three are in the middle sections with arrows (barely visible) above their heads.

Listening intently to Father...yay.

"So many roads, so many trials...God is with us through them all"

We have been singing and dancing all day. We are so very blessed.
