AWANA!

 So...a highlight of my AWANA experience was always...
AWANA Olympics!
However, I never did "Sparks-o-Rama"...
I guess it is the Sparky version of Awana Oympics.
I was somewhat looking forward to supporting Owen 
and showing how much fun it could be.
However...

 My little guy was so worried about not doing well or making a mistake 
that he almost cried before the games even began.
Although, we talked him off the ledge and
video
he played his heart out...
 and cheered on his team.
We had to be there an hour early because Roger was "Coach"...
needless to say, with a 4-year old and a 4-month old in tow,
I was not the happiest of the cheer section.

 At least Gabby had a little friend.
The team was not the most organized or strategic,
so it was hard to watch Owen be disappointed at a loss.
but, that is life.

 They all got ribbons and a patch for their uniform...
that was good enough for Owen.
:-)
I think some of the ornery attitudes came on because Gabby was getting over being sick and Owen came down with Strep that afternoon.
ugh...
And Momma?
Not sick but very sleep deprived.
Why is sleep so vital for happiness?
I just hope my kids' grace continues to extend to me...
I love them so, but they drive me crazy some days!
sigh...
love...
smile...
