It’s a VBS Thing! (Go your kids and your hair pulling will thank you!)


As most of you know I work from home so keeping the kids out of my hair during the day is like mission impossible.  I must say I have been blessed with a WONDERFUL neighbor that let’s the boys hang with her boys during the day.  So thankfully I just have to worry about breakfast and lunch during the day.  And of course a few little things during the day but thankfully I’ve been pretty blessed this summer and the kids leave me alone.

I have found some great local churches around our house that have VBS (Vacation Bible Study) and I’ve just found FIVE yes I said 5 around the house that are perfectly spaced out each week!  It’s perfect the kids get to go for like 3 hours have craft, snacks and bible study and I get complete silence at the house!

We have even found a new church that I will switch us too, has more younger couples and kids for the boys to hang with during Sunday school. 

I can’t say enough a thank you for all the churches around that do this for the kids!  It is truly a blessing that I cherish and grateful that they allow anyone to attend and for free!  Remember to take cans of food, churches always love that Princess!

This is what I found for Tacoma, WA (Google is a beautiful thing my friends search it and you’ll find a VBS by you too)

  • Faith CC 7/11 to 7/15 9a – 12:30p
  • Faith Lutheran 7/17 to 7/20 6:30p-8:30p
  • Our Savior Lutheran 7/18 to 7/22 8:55a-12:15p
  • Amazing Grace 7/25 to 7/29 10a – 1p
  • Little Church on the Prairie 8/1 to 8/5 9a-12p
  • Grace Church 8/8 to 8/12 6p-8:30p

It looks like the evening ones are a little hard so I’m not sure if we’ll do those especially since swim classes.  (That by the way is another store, I will tell you next week … I have become the parent the teacher look at each other and nod about).



  1. Sounds great.. My girls want to get back into going to church but i am having a hard time finding the energy to get up and going esp since what the pastor at our last church told us.. So i wont bore with details here.. but he was a prick to put it politely.. LOL!! but glad you found something. i have a vid of the girls and photos' up..

  2. That will be fun for the kids! It's always nice to have some fun things for kids to do in the summer, and they get to meet some new friends too. :)

  3. VBS is wonderful for the kids. Gives them an opportunity to learn more about Jesus. Plus gives moms a bit of a break too.

    Our church has Bible School all of next week if you are interested in visiting us here in IL ;-) at the Grace United Methodist Church.

  4. Emily just finished a huge one last week. They have 1/2 day for up to 1st grade and then all day for 2nd grade on...they have 900 kids and 400 volunteers. It is huge! She loves it but Brad isn't a he stays home with mom! ;)

  5. I love VBS my kids go to two a summer, but unfortuanetely this year only one. I have praying about changing churches too. So great that you found a church that you like!
    Blessings, Joanne
