Andrea's birthday is May 8. Steve wanted her to have a surprise party. I told him we had never surprised Andrea.
And we still can't, she was not surprised, but I think she did have a good time. We actually celebrated Paula's, Andrea's and Amanda's birthday, or at least I did. I gave them all their presents. I do not like to have to wait for giving presents.
I like any excuse for getting together with my kids and grandkids. The guys grilled, Paula made the cake, I cook the side dishes.
We had rain and storms, but thankfully, no tornados, so it was a good night.

Sunday night we had our AWANA closing. This year was great. Amanda, Andrea, Paula, and our friend Julie Mayberry helped out in our Wednesday night class. We had 9 kids this year. And many nights we had extra pregnant Moms hanging out with us. And we had three of those Moms have their babies and bring them also. What a room full.
It was a pretty crazy room full. But I think the kids learned about the Bible, said some memory verses, learned new songs and pretty much had a good time.
I really love teaching this class. I have been working with the "pre-cubbies" for 5 years. I have gotten to know so many people, parents and their children. And the other teachers.
I consider it a blessing to me to be able to do this ministry.
Amanda was in charge of music. I love this song they do, kneel and pray, they kids love it!
