Is this school year really almost over?! WHERE is the time going?? It seems that not so long ago we were attending last year's AWANA awards night and the EAGLES promotion/graduation ceremony. Now we're getting ready to do it all over again!
Tobin has "graduated" now after completing two years of Cubbies. He and friend T.J. did a great job of sitting with their leader and group. I was actually quite amazed that Sherri didn't come get me to take my child away! He probably was better behaved for her than he would have been if he had been sitting with me anyway. T.J. was so cute--all he wanted was to get his Cubbie Bear to put on his vest, and he was so proud of it! (The bear is the first-year Cubbie Award...Tobin got a ribbon to put behind the bear, which somehow didn't seem to excite him the way the bear excited T.J.)
Charis has now completed 2 out of 3 years of Sparks. In this picture she is sitting with her friend Hallie, who is also a home school friend. (In fact, Charis loves Hallie so much that she named one of her stuffed animals after her!) Charis has so many friends from church and home school activities! In fact, all my kids know so many people. Arden, who sat with me during the ceremony, was thrilled to be able to cheer on all the people he knows as they walked across the stage. What a blessing to be surrounded by godly friends! It's amazing how close we can grow to people in such a short amount of time. It's a gift God gives military families, I think! LOL
