Another AWANA year comes to a close...

What a year! All three kids did some great work and we celebrated them at the award ceremony last week.

Grant: Finished his second Cubbies book and will move on up to the Sparky Club in the fall. No more little kids! I think his favorite night was "Drive In Movie Night" where kids make a cardboard car and sit in it to watch a Veggie Tales movie. Grant and dad designed a cardboard combine this year. Pretty incredible!
Allison: Finished her book #2 for Sparks in February, and took on a challenge to finish a third book before year's end. AND SHE DID IT!! She completed book 3 in less than two months! That means she completed an average of 4 sections each week (a section is anything from bringing a guest, doing a bible crossword, but mostly memorizing scripture-- sometimes a few verses at a time!) Completing the third book earned her the Sparky plaque! Allison will move on to T and T this fall.
Sadie: She completed book #2 this year and will stay in Truth and Training (T&T) this next fall. One night she was the record breaking points earner for one night-- by completing a Discovery, completing a book and bringing two friends all in the same night!

"Keep my words and store up my commands within you. 2 Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. 3 Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart." --Proverbs 7:1-3

Easter in Pullman

Here's a few shots from our Easter weekend. After it was said and done, I realized how FEW photos were taken.
Unusal for Angela!

The unphotographed memories we'll keep are incredible! It was a blessed weekend with church and family and the celebration of the resurrection of our Savior!
