VBS 2014 ~ Day III

Today's recap of VBS is pretty much the same as the last two days. So much so, that I should just make today's post a Wordless Wednesday......and I would, if I had any pictures other than the top one. LOL

It seems she thinks it's a game now. Whenever I ask how her day went, she says it was fine. When I start pressing for more details, she tells me she doesn't know. Any question I ask about VBS, the answer I get is always "I don't know". If I then say that she just shouldn't go tomorrow if she's not having fun or doesn't know what she does, then I get a loud NOOOO! I WANT to go!

She DID tell me today that they do sooooo much stuff, it's just hard for her to remember all they do. I guess I'll have to accept that. LOL

I found out yesterday (through Nanny of course since McKayla doesn't know what they do LOL) that they have a VBS Mission's offering every morning. The kids are trying to raise $2,500 to build a bathroom in a church in Los Sanchez Nicaragua. They have an EXTRA goal to build restrooms at the school too, which would be another $2,500. If the girls have the most money, then Ms. Tara (the Childhood Minister) gets to throw a pie in Pastor Jim's face. If the boys win, then Pastor Jim gets to throw the pie in Mrs. Tara's face.

When I was telling John about it, McKayla pipes up "Yeah! We are! It'll be hilarious!" Of course, John and I both looked her and told her that she needed to let us KNOW this stuff so we could help out! We asked her how we're supposed to know what's happening if she doesn't tell us. Can you guess what she then said? "I forgot". Apparently that's her new favorite phrase. Oy vey. LOL

Oh well, at least she's having fun. She looks forward to going every morning. She's a chatter box when I drop her off and when I pick her up (just not chattering about what she did LOL). Oh and she's learned a new chant: "Y. E. S to V. B. S." and she'll run through the house chanting it. :-D

Cross your fingers I'll actually find out what she does at VBS tomorrow or Thursday! I'm dying to know! LOL


  1. Oh my goodness that must be frustrating!! I went through the "I forgot" phase when I was a kid too hehe. Good luck finding out more details!

    1. Oh and you could tell her that since she can't remember anything she has to start writing everything down LOL! I bet she will start remembering then hehe.

    2. I'm pretty sure I went through that faze too (I'm sure we ALL have LOL) and I need to tell my parents that I'm sooooo very sorry haha.

      Telling her to write it down wouldn't work too well for her, she only knows how to spell a few words LOL (She starts kindergarten this fall).

    3. Oh duh!!! I forgot how young she is! Uh oh.... I'm still going through the I forgot phase!!! LOL!

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAWN TO FAWN OR BRINDLE ONLY
Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
