Awanas, Country Fair, and Pet Parade

We have had another busy week. Brandt and Brayden were both in Awana Cubbies this year. They have learned so much about Jesus and His love for them. They have each done well with learning new Bible verses, but Brandt especially takes them to heart and can recall them well after the week he learned them. We are very proud of both boys. I taught Brayden's class, and Dustin did game time. Dustin was asked if he would dress up like Cubbie Bear for the awards ceremony on Sunday night. The boys loved it once they realized it was their daddy. It is hard to believe that when Awanas start back up in the fall, Brandt will be in Sparks!

Bryson was a little more apprehensive at first. lol Dustin walked up to Bry and he tried to climb up his teacher. haha He settled down and came and gave Cubbie high 5 and then when he realized it was Daddy he was willing to hug him.

After the Awards ceremony our church had a country fair. My older sister came to stay with us this week, so my younger sister brought her to our house, and they did the country fair with us. They enjoyed eating all the good food.

They also enjoyed all the yummy desserts, like cotton candy, ice cream, and cookies!

Then they had a ball playing games. Bryson especially liked this game, but he didn't want to play it, just play in the water. haha

Next they rode horses, and the older boys really wanted to ride together.

I love Bry's cheesy smile!

Then later in the week Brandt's school had a pet parade. It was limited to the first 25 pets, and I am glad I signed Brandt up quickly for it. Brandt told me he wanted to take Marley with him, since he had to choose 1 animal to take. It didn't dawn on me that Marley not only didn't have a leash, but we hadn't even gotten her a collar yet. So that morning we put our other dog's chocker collar and leash on her, and she straightened her legs and refused to walk. Thankfully, she is little and Brandt carried her the whole way. lol He loved all the kids oohing and awing over her and getting to let everyone pet her. I wasn't brave enough to take a picture during the actual parade, but here he is right before he went back to class.

Cute, cute, cute!!!

We had our cubbie awards and carnival a few weeks ago. I need to blog about it as well.

Chad did Cubbie Game time this year too!! Next year he'll be doing game time for ALL of Awana! He really enjoyed himself! Next year I'll have two Sparkies and one Cubbie! Oh and for the first time since Will started in Cubbies, I won't be working! I'm actually looking forward to the break! LOL!
