Anna and I are taking a "Mommy and me" ballet class once a week. She adores being a ballerina and I can never get those ballet shoes off of her! She tiptoes and twirls around the room. In class, I am supposed to encourage her and do the movements with her, but she will stick her hand out and say "Mommy, no, I do it" and leave me standing in a corner! It has been great to watch her enjoy something that can be all her own.
Asher is now a "Cubbie", or puppy as he would say, at Awana which meets on the Air Force base once a week. For the Awana newbies out there ( yes that would be me), this is all about scripture memorization. They do songs, games, and a story with the kids, and work on memorizing. Asher had to say 3 memory verses to earn, YES EARN, his Cubbie blue vest. We work on the verses all week and every day he would say "Mommy, I want a blue vest". I really didn't think a 3 year old could do it and was floored at how quickly he learned them. This picture was right after he was awarded his vest and he was soooo proud. Now we have a book to work through together that teaches him more about God and has more memory verses, which can earn him stickers and patches for his vest. What an amazing program.
Putting roots down in Denver, CO after 12 years in the Air Force. A daughter of Jesus Christ, a runner with big dreams, a Survivor addict, a wife, and a "hokie" mother of 4. Asher is 10, a swimmer in the 5th grade, Anna the ballerina, is 8. Jesse with a smile to melt your heart, is 6, and Josie Ruth is 3.
