Ever seen a flag made
out of spaghetti?

  • Day 2 of Vacation Bible School and we all made it without too much of a fuss-well, the first thing I did as I climbed out of bed was get Robby’s belt for Anderson (it wasn’t used but probably should have been).  He was in a bad mood but after breakfast he perked up a bit.
  • Everyone brought their cereal boxes for VBS and Campbell was so pleased with herself to carry her cereal in.  After the day, Robby joined us for lunch and we all had our pizza and then headed home.  And then disaster happened-Reagan left her lollipop at church!!  Robby promised her 2 which made Anderson cry.  So he promised Anderson 2 and Reagan 3.  Well, Graham would have none of this so he said he wanted 2, which then bumped Anderson’s total up to 3 and Reagan’s to 4.  Robby to Reagan that he would “hook her up” and after nap she reminded me that Daddy had said that he would “hook her up”
  • After dropping Lilly off, we had our naps and then started working on our family night.  The kids all helped top of the spaghetti-Flag Day Spaghetti.  Meatballs and sauce along with cheese for the stripes and more pieces of cheese for stars. 
  • When Robby came home we listened too some patriotic music and had our spaghetti.  Then we worked on dipping our strawberries in white chocolate and blue sprinkles.  Next up was making American Flags-it was quite complicated for every to understand 13 stripes and 50 stars.  Next up was finding the 50 stars and 13 stripes hidden in the den.  We then counted to 50 (quite a feat) and we topped the evening off with eating our strawberries and making some red, white and blue popsicles (which really just turned out purple!)
  • Robby read everyone a book before bed and then they all crashed-this VBS makes them crazy wild all day long but at least they sleep well.
