Awana awards #1

Last night we attended the Awana Awards ceremony and Westlake.

As was usual, they served dinner. Last night was rigatoni with meatballs and sides of salad, garlic bread and applesauce. We had cheesecake for dessert. This Awana serves more food than any I have ever heard of. In the year that we have been going there they have had "Thanksgiving - Awana style" as well as pizza for the grand prix, an indoor picnic, and Western night with bbq . What is really amazing is that they never charge for any of the dinners -they don't even collect dues.

After that the awards were given. Both of the girls got their trophies from the Grand Prix. Emily got her Hiker Review patch, and her workbook pin as well as her second book award ribbon. Eva got the Trek Milestone award.

We are proud of them - look for pictures coming soon!

Welcome May

April is gone - and as far as I am concerned, good riddance!

May is promising to be a busy month - we have scout camp, scout projects, an Awards dinner at Awana, There should be a court of awards in there somewhere too, a baby shower, the starting of Angel food,VBS planning and the list goes on and on. I guess that I will look at the bright side - thing of all those opportunities to take lots of pics. I should have enough to keep my busy for a while. (But do I really need to try and do that?)

So hopefully April showers are gone and I can look to the blooming beauty of May
