PK Heads Back to Bible Times?

This morning I went to a fun training day with
some volunteers from my church…


No, it was NOT on “How to be a Cool Hippie”
(this is my sister Melissa)


It was a ‘Hands On’ training day for Group’s VBS.
(the originators of ‘hands-on bible learning‘)
Pictured here: Me, Judy, Melissa, and Teri
(with authentic “Bible Dude” in the background)We were there to learn more about the VBS program we plan to use this summer and to see samples of the crafts, teaching, props, etc. We really like that it is designed to be a family VBS that the whole family can come together and experience togeter. It was fun to see that even little kids who normally would be off in child-care or a separate preschool program, were enjoying the day as much as the older kids and grown ups.

I was glad to find out what the official beverage of the Bible Lands was:


YES! Mountain Dew.It’s all part of well balanced Biblical Diet:

I also made a new friend… he calls himself “The Great Dane” and he is already a professional magician at age 12, doing Gospel magic – we had fun swapping some pocket tricks before the program started… it was tempting to say something, as Senator Palpatine said to young Anakin, like “I see you becoming the greatest of all magicians, even greater than Master Copperfield….” or “I’m going to be watching your career with great interest.”

My favorite thing (besides meeting the Dane) was the warm biblical bread – I even snuck off to the kitchen to snag a little extra! shhhhhh, don’t tell! I would include a picture of the half-eaten bread, but due to the flood of complaint e-mails and calls from my last blog post and a pending class action suit claiming public mental anquish, I am not able to post the ‘eaten bread picture

I also took a few videos, that ‘if you were there’ you might enjoy seeing:

THE JEWISH SONG AND DANCE (5.6MB QuickTime)
THE MARKET PLACE SKIT (5 MB QuickTime)
THE JEWISH TOY GAME (2.2 MB QuickTime)
and just for those who enjoyed the cute pastor’s son:
THE DANCING BOY (3.3 MB QuickTime)

MOST VALUABLE?

(or even if you weren’t there!! Since this blog is new,
nice to know if anyone is reading it, if it’s worth the time to do it)
