The kids completed their 2nd year in the AWANA - Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (taken from 2 Timothy 2:15) - through Life Church. This was Gabrielle's last year as a Sparkie and Dawson's last year as a Cubbie. Their awards program was held on Wednesday, May 1st. We are so proud of them for their dedication to scripture memorization and hiding God's word in their hearts.
Dawson had his second (ever) soccer practice the same night so we were a split family on the occasion. Travis took D to soccer and I took Gabi to the awards ceremony.
The event called for a few quick snapshots.
She is beautiful!
I'm a bit sad to think this little red vest will soon be packed away in a keepsake box. It represents lots of hard work, memorizing the books of the Bible and dozens & dozens of scripture verses.

Standing proud about to accept her awards.
The highlight of the night was winning a full tuition for one child for the 2013 - 2014 year in the raffle drawing. Woot!!
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV)
