Why VBS Amuses MePosted: June 18, 2012
To be honest, I haven’t helped with a Vacation Bible School program since I started high school. However, this is the second year my husband is serving as a teacher for his field work church’s VBS program. As a former daycare teacher who spent 30+ hours a week corralling grade school children (and many of those hours I did it by myself), it is really funny to see my husband spend a week doing a similar job. Our conversation after a day at VBS generally goes along these lines.
Husband: Some of those kids really don’t listen the first time.
Husband: Some kids forget to raise their hands and keep blurting out answers.
Husband: They also kind of check out at the end of the day.
Husband: I also had to stand a lot.
Husband: Stop smiling at me like that!
Don’t worry, my husband really enjoys teaching VBS–I just get really tickled when he gets a small does of what it’s like to work full time with children. I hope VBS is this entertaining for me every year!
