through the eyes of a cowgirl: what life was like last week.

cowboy hats. scarves. boots. gold mines. 
ropes. prospectors. horses. sheriffs.

last week, our church hosted a Vacation Bible School and my mom, sister and i volunteered to help out. i've helped out in past VBS' before but didn't really know what to expect for this week, especially since i didn't know too many of the kids here. but it turned out to be a blaaaast! i also got to co-lead a team of the sweetest and smartest 5 year olds ever with my teen assistants, Ashley (my sister - who isn't in the pictures above 'cause she was sick the day i brought my camera - bummer) and Arianna. 

and i personally was refreshed about the week. it was a privilege to serve and to be reminded about what Christ did for us. and seriously, i totally get a kick out of hanging out with the kiddos and dressing up in cowboy attire. and i think i'm gonna have these VBS songs in my head for the rest of the summer, but the time with my Mavericks (the name of our team) was so worth it!

much love.
[happy monday, friend.]

    I've always helped my husband as the crafts coordinator, but this year, my work schedule didn't allow me to :-( Our church's VBS was last week, too, and I really feel like I missed out!
