If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that we had vacation bible school at our church. Our church does things a little different than other churches do VBS. In the past, I was able to sign the kids up, then drop them off and pick them up at the designated time. During the years that I had babies, this was a wonderful set-up, and I’m still so thankful for those few hours of quiet while the Littles had fun at church.
But Summitview really encourages parents to get involved and create your own crews. This means inviting friends and parents being the leader. Not going to lie, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this, but I really wanted the Littles to go. And as I warmed up to the idea, the Littles wanted to ask their friends Hannah and Nolan to go with us. I may have hesitated just a moment, but quickly loved the idea and the next thing I know, we were packing up our full car and checking in every day this week by 9:30am. And shockingly, on time.
The Littles had an absolute blast! And I’m so thankful for the time I had with the Littles. The leaders, adults and teenagers, were amazing with the kids. So patient, so supportive, so energetic. Hudson even got to meet an older Hudson, and he was pretty much obsessed for the rest of the week. Major kudos for older Hudson and his patience!
It was exhausting… but so worth it. And yes, I’m singing the VBS songs in my sleep. Not even kidding.
