VBS started on Sunday with a picnic in the afternoon. Up North VBS was in the morning until noon. In Wis. they have it in the evening. I am doing pictures for the St Marks web site. There were some hard feelings on the part of my daughter. Very early the leaders asked her if she would do puppets which she agreed to do. In the ads they mentioned puppets so she gave it no more thought and cleared her work , she works until 8:ooPM. A card was sent for a meeting of those working at the VBS and she attended the meeting only to find out that she was not doing puppets but registering, and she was needed for only two hours for two days. She was very disappointed. She did what she was asked to do. When they started planning there was just our church and then they joined with another. The pastor of the other church does puppets and he and his wife were just called so my daughter was forgotten. The VBS has about 60 students. There are pictures on the St Mark's web page, which you can get to by Dr John's blog.
I enjoyed the opening of the Olympics but I did think about the fact that the farmers can't use water for their rice crops because it is needed at the Olympics. The relay swimming was exciting last night, with a last reach to give the USA a gold.
