The Cochlear Kids are having a wonderful time at Vacation Bible School at our church. They are learning verses (and repeating them on cue) and songs (with a little more difficulty but they are doing awesome)...just like the other kids. Church has been the BEST thing for my kids, despite my initial concerns that they couldn't hear well, or sit still (or any other excuse I gave for not taking them regularly). They actually have learned so much, including how to sit still and behave in church!!

Here they are playing water balloon volleyball and yes, Gage's leg is soaked right here...guess he fell a little short at catching those balloons with the sheet but it was all about team work. That night the story was about Gideon and his army of 300 God picked. They made a homemade trumpet with that one and last night after hearing about David and Goliath, they made sling shots. They can't wait to go back tonight and see what they learn.

Slingshots? (grin) I remember doing the same thing. I was disappointed when someone finally explained that David was *not* using a Y-fork stick and a piece of inner tube. The long piece of cloth or leather that you twirl to throw a stone (sling) was *much* harder for me to learn.

my kids made the sling shots, but the older kids made the actual slings (more age appropriate)
