Awana

Wow, what a great evening. Tonight was the kick off night of Awana. What's Awana? I didn't really know the answer to that question until tonight either... and I'm a leader! I have a class of ten 3, 4 and 5 year olds. I had no idea how much fun I could have with a group of kids -- and how tiring it could be. We ate ice cream, ran a relay race, played "guess the animal" and even managed to learn a little about God. :-) I can remember every one of my kid's names (including E!), which is a special feat for me since I'm horrible with names. It's incredible how trusting kids can be if you just call them by name. I got more hugs than I can count tonight, not counting the near-dogpile at one point. We go every Sunday. It's going to be a fun year.
