Vacation Bible School 2009

There have been so many funny things said around here lately, and I have been forgetting to jot them down when I hear them :( We have been busy with VBS and now the planning crunch for school, so I'm hoping to blog more in the near future. Until then, here are some cute VBS pictures. The theme was The Boomerang Express (The Australian Outback). The kids had fun!

This year, I helped in Q~ and H~'s class, so most of my pictures are from there, but I did happen to snap this one of N~ up on stage practicing for the family night program.

J~ in the nursery...

Q~ and H~'s Class.

The busiest place in VBS: Crafts

Yes, a kangaroo in diapers. There is something just wrong about that.

Obviously, it rebelled.

At the end of family night, the kids got to throw water balloons at the pastor.
S~ didn't get one.

Not including the lack of water balloons for S~, it was a very fun week!

We have been staying up late and sleeping in lately...so goes summer. Today I had this conversation with N~.

N~: Hey mama { I think it's so cute that he still calls me this...I know it will end soon :( }, do you know what?
Me: What?
N~: I think I'm nocturnal. I wanted to take a nap today.

I tried to keep a straight face.

However, I think I might be nocturnal too! :))

I pulled pictures off the camera this morning, and I found about 20 little 5 second long videos of everything, and nothing.

At first, I wondered who the culprit was until I saw this one.

The proof is in the little pink Sketchers.

Skunked Up

Our beautiful inside golden retriever Lucy, has become an outside dog.

Here's Why

I question the existence of these creatures. I mean, really....

Anyway, she was 'skunked', bitten, scratched, and all around whipped by a creature 1/10th her size.

Soooo....we have had her groomed shaved, bathed, and taken to the vet. She is on antibiotics, some kind of lotion stuff that I don't touch, and she is a TERRIBLE patient. She will not take her medicine, so we have to stick it in a spoonful of peanut butter to get her to lap it down. Add to it that she looks like a lion (they shaved everything but her face and tail...it is hilarious) and she is just PATHETIC.

Alright, I'm getting to my funny kid story point. The other morning, Ben was giving Lucy her daily dose of anti-skunk pill and H~ comes outside to watch. She looks at Ben and asks:
Watcha doing Daddy? The dishes?

Uh, yeah, gross.

Take heart, if you come over for dinner, I will use the dishwasher.

The inside one.
