Overall I'd say Vacation Bible School was a success! Bailey got to enjoy some time with other kids, play on a playground, eat snacks, and learn about Jesus. She even did some crafts, though I'm pretty sure she had a lot of help with those.
When we got there Monday night the nursery class was packed! They had only assigned two adults to the nursery and twelve kids showed up. So instead of just dropping the kids off my cousin and I stayed and helped out in the nursery. The up side of that was I got to watch Bailey play with the kids and she felt comfortable because I was there with her.
I also got to take some super cute photos of her learning about Jesus being baptised...
...and having outdoor snack time with chocolate chip cookies and orange soda...
...and playing on the playground.
She even tried the big girl swing for the first time. (This didn't last long. Right after I took this picture she fell out of the swing face first into the mulch, but I was proud of her for being brave enough to try it.)
With four adults we were responsible for three kids each, but really a few of those kids could have been in the pre-K class because they were potty trained and well coordinated enough to do the monkey bars and swings by themselves.
Tuesday night I was told I didn't need to stay because they had assigned some extra workers to the nursery so I slipped out quickly while Bailey was busy saying hello to another little girl. After that she didn't trust me and whenever we pulled into the parking lot she would start crying. I felt awful but I had to leave her Wednesday night. I decided Thursday I would stay again.
It rained Thursday meaning we couldn't play on the playground. We sang songs in the sanctuary and made some crafts, then went back to the nursery to play with the toys and have snacks.
They delivered cookies and Sprite to us and we also gave the kids some goldfish. I was surprised by how well Bailey drank out of the little cups without a straw or a lid.
Finally we made it to Carnival night. They had two bouncy castles. One was normal sized for the bigger kids and the other was smaller for the toddlers and pre-K kids. They also had sno-cones and hot dogs and chips and popcorn.
First she ate some of my popcorn, then she wanted a blue sno-cone. When I handed it to her she said, "I can have it?"
When I told her yes she was so excited she practically buried her face in it trying to get a huge bite.
Bailey was all about the playground. She kept climbing up and down the stairs but never would go down the slide.
I think she had fun this week. We'll definitely do it again next year.
