I guess you'd have to have been in the 1st and 2nd grade class to fully understand it when I say "Hooroo" to Mr. Allambee, I hope the bloke's remaining days are all "g'days!"
If it had not been for my helper, the extremely lovely and talented Miss Rachel aka Miss Rhoda ("that's not Miss Rhoda, that's Rachel!") it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun. Even after a little bout with tummy upset due to eating too much Aussie food in the down under, she still mustered up the will to make it there every night.
We had a great class, with great kids. They were mostly "Sheilas" but, it was fun to meet a couple of new "Blokes" too!
It was a great experience.
Our verse last night was Philippians 4:13, "I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me," and believe me, I'll bet there were a lot of teachers, and helpers who relied strongly on that verse this week.
So, to all of those who participated in a great VBS this year, keep "tearin' 'em up termites," and never forget, "It all comes back to Jesus!"
Note (update): If you know or have children in your family who would like to attend a Vacation Bible School this summer, some nice ladies from Hillside Baptist Church, located at 8366 West State Hwy 266 in Springfield, just stopped by to tell me about the VBS they are offering from June 29 - July 3.
If your kids or friends and neighbors kids would like to attend their Bible school, "Passport to the Promised Land," from 6:30 - 8:30 pm next week, the flyer says you can contact the church at 865-7286 for more information and to arrange a ride if needed.
Or, if you'd like to attend the "Boomerang Express" Bible school, check other local Baptist churches. I'm sure there are upcoming Bible schools scheduled at other churches in Springfield next week and possibly in August, though many churches try to hold them prior to August due to the heat factor. Hooroo!
