A lady came by the neighborhood today handing our invitations to Vacation Bible School that starts next week. I love kids going to vacation Bible school. It's fun, they meet new friends, make crafts and so much more. I was considering it until I noticed there is a sign up fee. I have helped do vacation Bible school, teach them, produce them and all of it. I have never, ever heard of anyone charging for vacation Bible school. It is 10 dollars per kid. No not a lot, but I don't have a lot of extra cash. We are doing a stay cation this year and saving for a puppy. I don't expect to be handed anything or feel entitled to free child care. I just never heard of charging for it before. Our church has had them before and we do it as a community outreach. It is free to whoever wants to come and all kids get the same rights, benefits, treats etc.
I just find it odd.
