Surf's Up!

It has been an incredibly long week! The painting is finished and delivered. VBS is over. I'm looking forward to doing as little as possible this weekend!

Today was the last day of VBS. At some point during the day I was inspired to grab a "surfboard" off my crafts classroom wall and head to the entry of the church to take some unique photos. They were FUN! The surfboard is one I printed on several sheets of cardstock on the color copier, and taped together. It's very flimsy but you can't tell it in most of the photos. You can tell by some of these photos that most of those I asked to come surfing with me were really getting into it! First I grabbed a couple of my 3rd and 4th grade students who had finished their projects and just said, "come on, let's go surfing." Then I grabbed the directors and the pastor.

Waverider Heather.

When I got the pastor to pose surfing, Angela made him do it again so she could be the shark chasing him. What a goofy bunch! The more tired we were, the goofier we all got all week long!

One of the funniest photos was when Angela grabbed the surfboard to carry it over her head in front of the beach scene on the wall. Of course it flopped over and did not make for a great photo op. Heather was passing through and grabbed the other end of the board and we laughed at how real it looks in that photo!

Surfer Joe.

Surfer Shannon.

I even grabbed a couple of the babies to come surf with me.

Waverider Joshua.

Waverider Chandler.

Don't these photos make you wish you really were headed to the beach this weekend??

Today the chairs in my office seemed to have the same effect on Chandler that they had on Heather yesterday.
