This week the Hays' family stepped out of their comfort zones and dove head first into experiencing VBS. Carli was not quite old enough for the 3 year old criteria, so we sweet talked Ms. Marla into letting Carli and her friend Allie come if Keith and I would help out in their group.
Shiloh Road tried a new concept this year and instead of dividing the kids out into different age groups, they combined all the age groups into 12 Tribes. Each group had a range in ages from 5th grade down to 3 years old. Our little group had nine kids in it and 3 were under three. It took four adults to manage them all! :)
Every night we came home exhausted, but it was a good kind of exhausted. Carli had a wonderful time and her little friend Allie did too. We were glad to participate and experience VBS this year!
Carli at the petting zoo with our good friend Tiffany. Tiffany was an amazing help on the last night of VBS since our main "Leader" couldn't be there. I am not a teacher by nature so I was bit stressed about being in charge. Tiffany took over and did an amazing job! I went back to my post of herding our little tribe!
Carli tried to feed the catfish grass. She was quite pleased with herself!
