Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Yahoo! Cowgirl!!

This week's theme at VBS was 'Tumbleweed Gulch', a rodeo/ranch theme. The kids and adults seemed to have a ball with it and did a tremendous job organizing and facilitating. There were about 400 kids there. By the end of the week, Regan was very into dressing just like the leader girls, right down to ponytails in her hair!!

She did great managing her fear of the animals, until the last night. Up until then, the animals stayed on stage and she knew what to expect. The last night, they were 'mingling'. When I got there, I found her in the arms of her leader, crying. She wanted to go home. We ended up staying, in the foyer, so that we could have popcorn and say goodbye to friends, but there was always a watchful eye for any wondering animals.

Overall, she had a great week! She loved that she got to eat dinner there everyday, and would ask each night and morning what was for dinner. It would take about an hour to wind down at night before going to bed. Luckily, she would 'sleep in' until about 8 am to make up a little bit of sleep.

Her verse for the week..."For God so loved the world, that he gave His only Son..." John 3:16 Hearing those words from your four year old takes away any doubt of whether it was worth exposing her to things she feared.
