AWANA (Sept-May 2012-2013)

I don't know if you are familliar with AWANA. It is a fabulous program for kids to learn about God & gain confidence in scripture memory. Kinda reminds me of a cub scout program where you get patches for different milestones or services. In AWANA they receive patches for service and scripture memory. Each child has a book that they work through along side their parent throughout the year. Our program just happens to run on Sunday nights at our church. We love it! The picture below is a group that has been together since they began the program at age 3. They will continue on to the next level for the year 2013-2014 as STARS. Last year they were Cubbies. It has been a huge blessing in our life each year we have participated in the program. At the end of the year they have an awards program & a party celebration with an Hawaiian theme. I have posted a few pics of his last day as a Cubbie.

I encourage you to look up an AWANA program that is in your home town. They are all over and at varies churches. You do not have to be a member of any of the churches to participate in the program.

It has been a long while. Did you think I was lost or buried under some craziness? The latter is true. It has been a busy busy season in my life. Little man graduated from pre-k, swim lessons started, trips to movies, meeting a celebrity, M.O.P.S. gno's(girls night out), vacations began, camps, visitors and of course the start of teaching my son phonics. Oh wait, I almost forgot ladies summer bible study! Whew. Yes, I have been lost in my own little world of craziness. I promise to catch you up on all our milestones in our little family when I can gather my thoughts properly or just gather them ;0). For now, I hope you are enjoying your summer because we have had a blast so far this summer. Here are a few of my favorite pictures! (p.s. I have no idea why my blog is doing funny things around my pics)

My little smurf! Yes, I am protective of my red head!
