We also scored a HUGE lot of polly pockets for $4. I tell you used toys is the way to go!!! I cannot believe how MUCH you can get so such a little price.
We came home and cleaned/ picked up because we were having the girl scouts over for a Spa Party (it was an extra incentive if they sold 200 boxes of cookies) SO thankful to have Loy stay and help mask up the girls, paint toes and fingernails, help with snacks:) It was SUCh a fun night. The girls were so cute! Especially with the cucumbers on their eyes! What a hoot!
We were lying in bed tonight and Ella said, "Mom when you said we were doing masks tonight, I thought we were putting real masks over our faces. Can you make sure to show daddy when I had the cucumbers on my eyes with my mask." She thought it was so cool to do it with the big girls.
Mark just "skyped" with me tonight and said they were very busy today. They did lots of projects like painting, etc around Children of Hope and then met with the leaders about the VBS Saturday (which is going on soon if you are up late at night reading this- they are 9 hours ahead of us) The VBS is HUGE with over 500 kids expected. They have 3 stations set up- a craft station, a game station and a Bible Story Station and they will feed them lunch. They will hand out the little packets we put together with a pencil, sharpener, paper, stickers and 4 crayons. Mark is teaching at the Bible Story Station from our Jesus Storybook Bible showing how Christ is woven through the Old Testament Stories (Adam and Eve/David and Goliath) and then teaching about Christs birth, ministry and death. Pretty awesome stuff! Last year they held one and Mark said that kids younger than 3 yrs old just come all by themselves no adults around. They come out in droves and just LOVE the VBS! So please pray specifically tonight for the team as the minster to all these kiddos!
