This year was year 2 in our three part Vacation Bible School. Here is a link to my last year's post on VBS Beginnings. This year told about the last week of Jesus' life. We still had the market set up, this year we added a Garden. There was also a tomb set up. The kids were divided into the tribes of Judah again. The costumes were still a nice touch. My only problem with last year's VBS was I wasn't sure how it could get any better, how were we going to top it. Last year was so good. Well my doubts were crumpled, this year was fantastic! I can only imagine what next year will hold.
(I had some major lighting issues when the skits were going on, I tried my external flash and then got blurry pictures. I also wasn't always in the best position for the picture and couldn't really move around. I will have to work on that for next year. As soon as Penny's pictures get uploaded to the church website, I will provide a link.)
