Today's ABC Wednesday post has many words with the sound of X.

I have had such an eXciting week last week and now this one.
Two thousand kids and volunteers have been eXperiencing a most
eXtraordinary week at our Church Vacation Bible School camp
called Breakaway to the Big City.
It's like Vacation Bible School on steroids.
Did you ever see so many eXuberant kiddos singing and dancing

Recreation time is quite an eXtravaganza of fun eXperiences.
Giant slip and slides....

More dancing and singing, which is fun and eXpends LOTS of
energy each day.
Its like a ready made eXercise class.
I have to admit that I'm glad it's the young ones doing it.
I just watch their eXcellent moves.

This year an eXhilarating new activity was added to recreation.
Go carts and a huge track were built on our field.
Each child was given 1 ticket to ride at their specific time during the week.
The kids waited eXpectantly for their turn.
There is lots of supervision so there is great fun on each eXcursion.

The young interns for our Leadership program did what seemed
like an eXtemporaneous Flash-mob dance down the Breakaway aisle.

This is just an eXample of all of the fun being had at Breakaway.
I am thrilled to be a part of this eXperience.
Serving snacks to the 4 and 5 year olds is just as much fun for me.
It makes me wish I was younger sometimes.
All of the photos posted were done by one of our fantastic church
photographers, Darren.
Don't forget to enlarge each picture to see the detail more clearly.
