Last week the kids and I attended VBS at Good Shepherd. I led the science center, which is always a good time. It's an even better time when the experiments work, as they did this year. To Benjamin's dismay, there were no explosions as in the past... maybe next year. The kids had the awesome opportunity to sing one of the songs they learned with the SonRise Praise Band at the Contemporary Service on Sunday. Yes, that's LIVE music, not memorex, or whatever that commercial used to say. The kids AND the band were rockin! God moves in me and speaks to me through music and this song was no exception! Just look at those little ones singing their hearts out and praising God! Only 3/4 of the Carpenter children are present in this video. Benjamin, age 10, aka mohawk man in the back row, Rachel, age 9, green shirt on the left and Emily, age 2, yellow shirt on the left in the front row. Sarah decided to sing from the pews in the safety of momma's arms.
The theme this year was Camp E.D.G.E. It was an extreme adventure where we Experienced and Discovered God Everywhere! The 4th, 5th and 6th grade group decided to have a crazy hair day and yep, they took it to the EXTREME!
