Chalking It Up

Four-year-old Preston Bueker uses a piece of chalk to draw on the asphalt surface of the First Baptist Church parking lot on East Springfield Road Wednesday morning during Vacation Bible School. The preschoolers and kindergartners, as well as their leaders, were taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather earlier this week by spending part of their VBS time outdoors. The church’s VBS ended on Friday, but a special “coaster festival” is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Sunday at the church, 450 E. Springfield Road.
