Last week was Vacation Bible School at our church and the kids LOVED it. We did the High Seas Expedition and it was a very well put together Vacation Bible School. Daniel always looks forward to this week every summer and Luke participated quite a bit this week and loved it too.
Luke gave us quite a giggle the first night of VBS. We arrived at church and he had a fit. He was so mad because “this is not PBS, this is church!!” It was too funny. He finally got what *V*BS was all about and decided that it was okay that it was at church. 🙂
The favorite for the boys every year would have to be the songs. This year was no exception. I love that they do music videos now with the words and motions. I thought that was pretty cool. Anyway, the boys have been singing the songs all week and it is such a joy to hear your kids sing such uplifting songs.
Daniel’s favorite was Ancient Words. It was the only slow song from VBS and not one you would immediately guess would be the favorite of an active 7 year old boy, but he LOVES this song. I have always loved how he can feel music. He gets right in the moment with it and I have heard this song no less than 50 times this past week (we have a copy of the CD).
Both boys sing every word to the top of their lungs and it is beyond sweet.
Hearing a group of children singing praises has to be my absolute favorite part of VBS too. It’s so innocent and joyful!
Here’s the song that has captured my kiddo’s hearts.
Words of Life, words of Hope
Give us strength, help us cope
In this world, where e’er we roam
Ancient words will guide us Home.
Ancient words ever true
Changing me and changing you,
We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart.
