AWANA graduation and more

Last night the kids had their AWANA awards. Josh graduated from Cubbies and will be a Spark next year. McKayla got an award for finishing the first Sparks book. And Lizzy got an "Under the Apple Tree" award for being able to consistantly remember verses from weeks past. They were all so cute up on stage!
Mike took Josh and McKayla to a Kane county Cougars game two weeks ago. They had a great time. A lot of McKayla's friends from school were there since it was a night to honor the kids for their reading - a program that the Cougars team does. Mike said Mckayla was silly as can be and Josh's highlight of the night was buying this light up sword from a vendor whith his very own money.

These we took after church one day. I was disappointed that we didn't get any of the whole family together at Easter (we are uaually in KY and someone takes it for us. We weren't organized enough to try the tripod!) So a series of random candid's will have to do. They turned out cute anyway.
We are getting ready for a busy summer. McKayla is looking forward to being a camper for the first time. (Oh wow! What a big step for her and mom!) We can't wait for vacation with the Baker side in Holden Beach, NC. And the kids are thrilled that we got a pool pass this year at Wheaton's fabulous Rice Pool and Water Park. It's awesome. Gotta admit. Kinda excited myself about that! We are all doing great and thankful that the warmer weather is on it's way!
