Fun for the Whole Family! (But Especially Dad)

So our church held their annual VBS this week, and I'm not sure who was looking forward to it more, the kiddos or their Daddy! The FHCC family goes all-out for this event, and it really was an amazing program.
The kids woke up talking nostalgically about what had happened the night before, sang the songs ad nauseum throughout the day, drew pictures of Creation-Corruption-Catastrophe (and rather dramatic ones at that), shoveled down their dinner and flew out to the car, then collapsed euphorically into their beds three hours later, only to dream about doing the same thing all over again the next day. Not even a Disney vacation could generate more excitement for these three!

Their Daddy was just as excited, for he enjoys few things more than spending time with the church, and this week afforded him the chance to do so every single night! He ended up pinch-hitting as a team leader one night, and filled in during game time to even out the teams. He showed no mercy to those eight-year-olds; Pastor Dave plays to win!
