Ben the Bully.

I am so behind in posting. So I'll skip some things and move on to the important ones...

Last week was VBS - it stands for Vacation Bible School but in my house it meant Vacation from Boys being Silly. We went on Monday to drop Simon off and found out that because Ben was potty-trained he was able to go too. I actually said to the registration lady, "Are you serious?" I was so excited. 2 1/2 hours with Talon - no other boys!!?!!!! Nice!

So the boys had a fabulous time - learning new songs, meeting new friends, getting reacquainted with old ones (our old neighbor was there - Simon was so excited!), making crafts. And Talon and I had a wonderful time too. It was just so relaxing to have only 1 child - especially if you really have 3 boys!

Okay, so they had the VBS program on Friday night. We didn't have a babysitter so Jon went with Si & Ben because I had already heard all the songs. Man, did I miss out on some fun. The pictures don't do it justice, I'm sure. And I'll try to explain it my best.....

The program is getting ready to start.
Simon is all ready. Bennett is not so sure.

It looks as though this boy next to Ben is saying "Hey Ben, let's be naughty!"

Ben's reply..."Okay!" (with his hand down his pants. Helllloooo, Peter! Oh man, I am scared!)

Jon assures me that they were having a blast and cracking up the whole time. These pictures does not make me believe that statement. It looks like this kid is about to beat Ben up.

But Ben wasn't having it!

Not knowing what is going on, Simon sings his little heart out.

While Ben has as much fun as he can....not singing the songs.
Here they are jumping off the steps and laying on them.

Apparently the whole church thought this was hilarious. Someone sitting in front of Jon was laughing so hard. She must have seen him taking pictures so she turned around and asked if he knew those kids. He said, "Yeah...one of them is my son." She thought it was so funny. She also thought they were brothers - or at least cousins - the way there were messing around.

I was putting Ben to get after they got home and told me what happened and I said, "Let's go, Bruiser!" He said, "Bwewser. I not Bwewser, I Ben." Oh Benny James, I love you - even if you are a little bruiser and ruin the VBS program. I'm sure it's the first of many.....

It seems as though whenever I attempt to put my children on a stage, the use the opportunity to act as crazy as they can!!! I am always so proud to have the adorable child dressed up as an angel with one hand in his pants and the other up his nose. So angelic!!!!
Oh well it makes great stories later!

That is such a funny story and that was great that Jon took so many pictures. I love when the program gets funny like that. That's why I go, don't tell my kids;p j/k.

Hilarious!! I can just see him doing that! Thankfully, we haven't had anything like this happen yet, but I'm sure I'll have my fair share with my boys too!

I feel really sad that I couldn't be there to see it! AND the stupid video camera wasn't charged when Jon was leaving - otherwise I'd have a really funny video!
