Tonight Lorelei began "Iguanas" Club Cubbies. I gave her the choice of a second activity (besides violin), and it was a close call between dance and this, but Iguanas (Awanas) won out!
I love Awanas Clubs, in part because I have so many great memories of being a Sparky when I was a little girl. I love that it's like scouts--full of games, crafts, and activities, and always opening with a song, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Awana's Pledge--but that badges and jewels are earned for memorizing Bible verses. To this day, I can name all the OT and NT books in order, thanks to Awanas, which is still a helpful skill. Lorelei loved her first Awanas Club!
