Sophie started Awanas tonight at church! It's like a Bible class for kids, with lots of fun games and lessons to help the kids learn. This is from the Awana website: The Awana club for preschoolers is built on two premises:
Home is the primary place for spiritual training.
The Awana club for preschoolers is built on two premises:Young children can and should receive spiritual training.
Our preschool program meets these needs through …
Fun – and lots of it! Awana is fun with a purpose – to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ. Games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.
It seems like a great program. She'll learn Bible verses and earn badges for different things. Sophie doesn't know any of the kids in her class, which feels unusual since this is the church that she's been involved in. I suppose this is a chance to meet lots of new little friends! She seemed to enjoy it. I worry that it might be too much for her as we get farther into the Fall. Between preschool, Awanas, church, Sunday school, and nursery when the new Dave Ramsey class starts (next week already!), it might be too much. We might have to re-introduce a short afternoon nap for her to recharge her batteries.
