Last night the boys started AWANA through our church, well and I started too because I am one of the leaders. AWANA is kind of like Sunday School or Vacation Bible School, but it happens once a week, all through the school year. I originally signed up to help with Kevin's age group, K-2nd, and I thought that would be easy enough because the kids are a little older, can listen, can understand better. BUT there were too many others that signed up for that same group, so I went over to help with Zachary's age group, the 3 and 4 year olds. When we got home Garrett asked how it went and I just said, "chaotic"! Lucky for me I had a great little group consisting of three little girls and Zach. This age group is not what is unknown to me, I work with little ones too, but the fact is that there were some really, wild, crazy, out of control kids and I was just happy that they weren't in my group! At the end of the night both boys seemed to have had a good time. Kevin was in a group with some kids he knew both from church and from school, and he excited because he got stickers and a lollipop.....nice to give a kid this at 8:00 pm right before bed!
By the way, the picture above has nothing to do with AWANA, I just wanted to include it. This was from our last trip to Mammoth over Labor Day weekend.
