I finished this post 3 weeks ago, leaving to see Mrs. Langston at the nursing home while the video uploaded. Of course, John surprised me there and then I had much more interesting post!
Finally I'm going back to this and have decided that now is a good time to post these pictures and video of my AWANA kids class. I have really enjoyed "my kids" this year - ending up with many active boys and girls (though mostly boys) who are typically very excited to be at AWANA.
Above is this year's Picture! All the kids don't have the books completely down as you can tell from the video, but they're close. The video was taken a month ago when my class size just about doubled since I had both the kindergarten and first grade kids due to the kindergartener's teacher being sick (needless to say it was a bit more of a crazy class then usual! We have only two more weeks for the kids to finish saying the sections in their books (and then two more weeks for awards and a pizza party). I think most of the kids who have come all year are very close to finishing and I'm very glad to say that they have done a great job on their books of the old testament section due to Memlok's Say the books! story and actions.
I'm flying off to see John this weekend and can't wait! I plan to take a few pictures, so you should see some photos from that area sometime next week!
