A few weeks ago the big kids had their Awana awards program at church. This awards program is a big reason why they did Awana this year in the first place. Last year we attended the program, and Kathryn saw all the kids on the stage getting awards and performing a song, and was heartbroken that she wasn't up there as well. So we told her she could do Awana this year, and she was thrilled (and for a while asked every week if it was her turn to get up on stage!).
The Puggles, Jackson's age group, was first to get their awards. It was hilarious seeing all the two year old chaos up there! Can you tell? He didn't know where to go...This is a blurry picture, but he was tickled to be on stage too!
With his award!
This is the Cubbies group, for Kathryn's age. Can you tell the difference in this picture than in Jackson's pictures? These kids actually stand in a line!
It was a very serious thing for Kathryn. She loves feeling like such a big girl!
We were so thankful for the Awana program this year! Kathryn learned a new verse every week, and I love how the Word of God is hidden in her heart. (Jackson's class did Bible lessons as well, but they didn't really memorize verses since some of them don't talk much yet!)
