Well another year has officially ended. By the time it ends I'm always ready, I have to say though that this year has been the best so far. I love the kids, it's truly amazing to see them growing in the Lord! What an awesome experience it is to see them memorizing God's word and keeping ahold of it! I wish I'd had this as a child, yet I love that my own are getting this opportunity and it's helping shape who they are. They LOVE Jesus and there's nothing more important than that!

Today was just a really long day. Last night the downstairs neighbor boy spent the night, they were up bright and early...thankfully Chad was up with them! :) Then it was time to head to church, once home Chad grilled while I finished up Awana things, then we walked down to the skating rink where we had the end of the year Awards ceremony/party. It was a busy night. I had more things to finish up once I was there, then we handed out the awards to all the kids, then because items weren't here on time we also had the final store night...that was somewhat controlled craziness. It was REALLY hot in the skating rink so I was sweating bullets. I'd like to say I'm one of those girls who doesn't sweat, but I do! Not everything went completely smooth, but it wasn't bad, just not perfect. Maybe next year! LOL The kids were able to enjoy skating, pizza, cake, drinks, etc. Emma was held by everyone but me it felt like, but it was nice to know she was being loved and cared for and I was able to do what I needed to do. I think the kids had a great time, and then we helped clean up a bit, and it was time to head home.

I will implement some changes next year to a few things in a few area's, but otherwise all is good. I have 2 options for secretary next year and both would be awesome. I am looking forward to having Sunday evenings free for a while though. It's always a well needed/deserved break by the time it ends. I look forward to Sunday evening BBQ's, letting the kids play outside, and just being able to come home from church and maybe taking a nap if I want! Oh now that sounds awesome!!! LOL

Let me tell you that if you have children ages 3 and up look and see if there's an AWANA in your area. Go to and there's a link at the top of the page about finding a club in your area, find one and get plugged in! Your kids will love it and you will too! You don't HAVE to volunteer, but it's so worth while.

I'm off to bed.

God Bless
