Our annual VBS always brings back pleasant memories of my childhood Vacation Bible Schools. I looked forward to it every summer. The days of flannel boards are a thing of the past and we are on to more 'exciting' programs, but secretly, I still miss the old days. I guess kids today just need a little bit more activity to keep their attention.
Even the snacks have changed. At my childhood VBS it was always the same--a cup of kool-aid and two cookies--usually oatmeal and lemon. Now, in keeping with our current cowboy theme, we have 'fried rattlesnake', cactus punch, etc.
Did you attend VBS as a child? How do you compare it to the VBS programs you see today? I'm not complaining, I just can't help but compare the differences between then and now. And, I wonder if the kids really enjoy it more than we did back when it was a little bit 'plainer'.
Have a great day!
