My Spark and Puggle

Both of the kiddos are in Awana clubs at our church. If you aren't familiar with Awana, it is sort of like the scouts, but you earn badges by memorizing scripture. C moved up to the Sparks this year, which is the K-2nd graders. AP is a Puggle, which is the 2 and 3 year olds. The Puggles aren't memorizing any scriptures, but they are learning basic Bible concepts. I am one of the Puggle teachers and I just happened to have my camera with me yesterday. This is AP with her girlfriends. They decided to all hold hands on their own, which is what prompted my picture taking session :)
So far this semester the Puggles have been learning the days of creation. Last night we learned that God made farm animals. The kiddos made a little parade.

Puggles take lots of play breaks!

I have to confess that I was not very on top of what C was supposed to be doing as a Spark this year. We got really behind on his scriptures. Then we lost his book. Then we spilled something on his bag and his vest! However, over the last 2 weeks we have pulled ourselves together and are back on track. Yesterday afternoon we went Bible shopping and C moved from his Preschoolers Bible to a new big boy Bible. He enjoyed getting to choose which one he liked. I think he was drawn to the lizard-like cover :) I was excited to hear that he used his new Bible to look up the verse that he had memorized and then read it to his class!

Here he is with his new Bible (it's the Illustrated Study Bible for Kids if anyone is wondering)

...and then showing me his wings and first red jewel on his vest!
