Awana Cubbies

Avery has been a part of our Awana program at church since she turned 4.  The 4 and 5 year olds are called “Cubbies” and she has attended on Wednesday nights, saying her bible verses to earn patches for her vest, and learning lots of bible stories.  A couple weeks ago, all the kids had an award ceremony, and Avery also earned her last patch to complete her vest.  I am so proud of the work she has accomplished!

At the beginning of the awards ceremony, all the kids got to go up on stage to sing.  For the first whole song, Avery just stood there with her tongue in her cheek/lip (which is what she does when she’s embarrassed), but the second two songs, she finally got into it. :)  What is it about your child getting on stage to do anything that makes a mommy get a huge lump in her throat and tears in her eyes?


The Cubbies lined up on the step as each one got their award.


This is Mr. Smith…an older man in our church who helps with Cubbies every week.  He is so sweet and the kids adore him!


Avery with our Cubbies leader, Mrs. Angie.  Avery loves her!  Here is her totally completed vest!  Way to go Avery!

I really wish our church had some more kid's programs. Awana sounds like a lot of fun!
