On Saturday it was Max’s turn to attend his year-end ceremony. He earned the Alpha award for T&T, which means he completed the first book and memorized 90 verses. Plus he participated in a verse-a-thon event and raised money for an Awana club in Venezuela. Our kids did an amazing job raising funds as a group. Their goal was $440 but they raised over $2,500 and recited hundreds and hundreds of verses in small groups for an hour and a half straight. Awesome!
As soon as the ceremony was over, the water hoses were turned on and the carnival games had begun outside. Everyone had a blast and Max wasted no time before getting soaked.
Mini had fun, too, and waited in line to jump on the moonbounce at least a dozen times with her friends.
This was a busy week at church. Two awards ceremonies, Salt Sunday (Max and I joined a group at a hospice center where we washed windows and did yard work), a church picnic, and World of Water for our jr. high group.
After taking the year off, I’m excited to be involved again with middle-schoolers. The break was nice but I really missed them! They gave me such a nice welcome back hug, too. 🙂
What an exciting week of celebrations. We feel so blessed to be part of such a great church family and look forward to another great year starting in September.
But first, let the Summer begin!!
