Kara started Awana this year (Cubbies)She has done better with memorizing her versus than I thought she would do. Some older kids wear a vest with patches for each step they complete. Every week Kara would ask, "When do I get my vest?" We told her soon but she has to repeat all of her versus to her teacher without help and tell her where to find the verse in the Bible. She loves going and ask everynight is tonight Awana? She finally was awarded her vest but was not patient at all. All the kids were sitting at their assigned tables waiting to be called up to the front. Kara with each name called stood up and moved closer and closer each time. She would get excited and then realized it was someone else. She was cracking us up. We kept saying "sit down, sit down" but she wasn't listening. Finally she was called and clapped for herself and ran right up there. I was messing with the camera and missed most of it but could hear her yelling. "Daddy & Mommy, I finally got my vest, I got it, I got it. You would of thought she won an Olympic God Medal. We are so glad she is that excited to learn and memorize the Bible. We pray she doesn't lose that desire. Plus I am now learning a new verse everyweek.

We were so blessed to be given free tickets to the OSU vs. Eastern Michigan football game. Many thanks to the Mercer family. They even told us where to park for free, about a 15 minute walk to the stadium. I was so excited for Tim since he has lived in Columbus the majority of his life but has never been down to a game. We grabbed a hot dog and a water before we went into the game.(saved us $5.00)Of course, I had snacks in my bag. Great day, great weather, spending time with my hubby, and a great win for the Bucks (record 73-20 score)

Kara was so excited to start school again. She was bummed she wasn't riding the big bus to school. I have it my way she will never ride a bus to school. She is with 12 other boys and girls at a Christian Preschool. We are so blessed to have this school so close to us. She walked right in to her classroom at open house and went right up to her teacher and introduced herself. We were so proud since she was the only child who introduced themselves. The majority of the kids were hanging on their Mother's leg and crying. They had a service in the Chapel for the whole school that night. Kara didn't hesitate to remind her teacher that it was time to go to service. Her teacher was very appreciative that she had a good helper already. Her poor teacher will have her hands full with Kara.
