Extreme VBS

Ally turned four this year, so that means she's old enough to attend Vacation Bible School (VBS). We figured one wasn't enough, so she went to two different ones in consecutive weeks. The first was at a large local church and was attended by over 500 children. The theme was "SonForce Kids" and the idea was to follow "Dr. No" all around the world and change him into "Dr. Yes". They got together in the mornings for a week and finished with a program on Friday night. All the kids were encouraged to wear sunglasses (secret agent theme, get it?) and Ally was happy to comply:

The next week, VBS was at our home church. It was much smaller, about 70 kids, and they met in the late afternoon/early evening, from 5:30 - 8:30 PM. Those hours meant we had to feed her something before we took her, then Lauren and I ate by ourselves later. Not having Ally at the dinner table was weird. We forgot what it was like when it was just the two of us and it was a reminder of how much richer our lives had become after she became part of our family.

Anyway, they had a sports theme and the kids broke up into different groups based on a particular activity (soccer, cheerleading, etc.). The youngest ones, like Ally, were in the Tater Tots and, from what I can tell, they did just about everything. The memory verse was Jeremiah 29:11 and Ally pretty much nailed it. They all got shirts:

And certificates at the end:
