Wacky WAK Launch Party

Last Sunday, we had the kick-off party at church for our fall semester of WAK (Worship Arts for Kids).  Craig is the director of this children’s choir program.  The theme of the party was “wacky” so I had the idea to dress as boomwhackers, one of the instruments that we use in WAK. We had the perfect number to make a whole octave.

After we took our group shot, we attempted to play a scale, but that wasn't too successful since we have such young kids.
One of the stations that we had at the party was the "Wacky Window" based after "The Truth Booth" that I've seen from photographers. Most of the wacky costume supplies came from my own stash of "junk" including the picture frame.
Thomas really enjoyed dressing Cole up for the fun.

One of the other favorite activities was dancing to "wacky" songs such as the Hokey Pokey, the Chicken Dance, and the Macarena.

Exxon/Mobil Fieldtrip

On August 18th, Luke was able to attend a fieldtrip to Exxon/Mobil.  This fieldtrip was only for children grades 4-12.  Amy took her older kids and Luke while I watched the younger ones.
