Awana Clubs

Before I talk about that I just wanted to say that we have been crazy busy...shocking, I know! Plus, the weather has been extremely nice out and we've taken advantage of the warmth. This weekend GlamorGirl went to her first Awana Games, as did I. I didn't grow up going to Awana Clubs like my husband did so this was all new to me. It was great fun. There was about 32 churches there. If you are unfamiliar with Awana Clubs they start at Cubbies which is ages 3 and 4 year olds, then Sparks which is Kindergarten to 2nd grade, then they split the kids into boys and girls called Truth in Training better known as TNT Boys and TNT Girls, which is 3rd grade through 5th grade. Well this Saturday was the Awana games where the churches compete in different games. GlamorGirl made the team for our church. Hopefully Monkey will be on it next year. They had matching shirts with our church name on it and they also had spectator shirts that we bought for me, J, Monkey and Red. We ended up taking home 2nd place. She was so excited. On Sunday we all wore our shirts. The best part was that they were taking pictures for the picture directory in the hallway. I begged J to let us get our taken because we were making. He doesn't like to match! We got it taken and I can't wait for them to update our picture because the one on there now Red was 3 weeks old, he is going to be 3 years old in May! We needed to update :) The only bad part about this weekend was that I lost my hooter hider that my friend Belinda made me, so sad. I used it while we were at the games and I must not have gotten it into the diaper bag before we left.

On a goofy note, I just talked to some friends from church who went to Navy Pier today and they said that Red, J and I are famous with a 2 ft picture hanging up. I think it was in the children's museum? I'm thinking we might have to make a trip there and see this. I remember last year when we went there in February they were taking our pictures and told us that if they used it they would let us know but they never did. We also had to sign some kind of form. Too funny.

That's so cool! We live in the Chicago area and would love to see that. Let me know where it is so we can check it out! : ) (Are you in the area as well? It would be so great to meet!)

We weren't able to participate in the Awana games this year (so much going on), but Cody has been a part of Awana since he was three, and I absolutely LOVE the program. It has been a huge blessing to all of us.

Have a great day!
