Yesterday evening our granddaughter, Brianna, arrived to spend the
better part of the week with us, as she attends the Christ Chapel Bible
Church VBS. It runs Tuesday through Friday, with a big kick-off
party last night. Our niece, Meredith, graciously consented to
bear us company, and away we went.
It was quite crowded, so there tended to be looong lines for the most
popular activities. Don did line duty for the Team Challenge
Inflatable, while the girls did the beanbag toss. See the yellow
thing between Marebear and the yellow bucket? That's her
beanbag. She was so good she kept being moved back.
I must say this was a good notion, taking few volunteers, and very low cost....bubble wrap pop!
The girls loved the inflatable challenge course, insisting upon going
through it twice, darn the line! Which was, of course, easy for them to say as it was Don and I who waited in it.
BTW, both times Marebear beat Brianna, though getting a bit slower start. She's FAST!
All that effort takes it out of a girl, though, so reviving snowcones were in order:

girls also rode the "train" that can be seen behind them.
While there Viktor, one of the boys from Ryazan who came home earlier
in the spring, stopped to say hello, looking around for Dmitry.
Unfortunately I had to disabuse him of the idea that this was a
Dmitry-style affair. Too many people, too hot, and accompanied by
Yeah, like that's gonna happen. Compared to Taylor and Tibia, it was no contest.
Brianna had a terrific time at the VBS this morning, and is looking forward to returning on the morrow.
