Another year starts

Another year starts of Sparks in AWANA club. We painted up our room really nice, and painted Sparky on the wall. Wednesday the 9th was the first night, and we had 6 boys there. I only had to give out 3 marks on the hand (black marker, bad mojo) as discipline. No one wanted to get a second mark! I'm hoping for a good year this time around. For those who don't know what AWANA is, it stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, it's a Bible club for children, ages 3 through 12th grade. Our church is not doing the program for the younger children this year (no one to teach them), and I am director of the Sparks (K-2nd grade) boys and girls. If there is a movie coming soon, rated G or a childrens cartoon movie, we take them on an outing, or maybe an outing on a Saturday to the park, and have a picnic. Many of the kids live in the public housing, so we get to do some outreach to them. Trying to get them to behave sometimes is another thing!
