This year, Riley was of school age to participate in our church's vacation bible school. So we made it a family affair-- I volunteered and Riley got to be in a small group (and Connor in the preschool program). I was a leader for a group of the sweetest fifth graders. And while I was focusing on giving them the message, it was sweet to be able to see Riley interact with her group from the corner of my eye. She was very invested in the lessons and the worship. And seeing my shy girl just praise the Lord in song and dance was an awesome treat.
