This past Wednesday was the biggest night of AWANA ever at Family Church. Nearly 150kids were present. 52 workers were ready to receive kids and have lots of fun helping them become more like Christ. I can't wait till this Wednesday. I've already talked to a few more parents this week who are going to bring their kids. I pray for more kids and workers as we reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him!

Another great thing happening in our church is about 50 baptisms last month. 20 of them are youth! Way to go Revolution! Praise God!

On a personal note, I finished the playset for Abby and Kylee. I built the base a year ago and set it back in the woods. I brought it out with my father-in-law's forklift (that was fun) because Kylee said she was scared of the woods (so much for the rustic look). I added a roof, swings, and railroad ties (thanks Bro. Roy) to outline it and all I need is something to fill it with. I know its a man thing because they could never reach it (I almost couldn't to finish the roof), but I made it 15 feet tall. I was going to add a zip line but Haley had to remind me that they were 5 and 2. I told her it was for me...

Kylee is doing good on her first year of school. I take her to school and this past week was the first to drop her off at the door. I walked her to class the first week. On last Monday, I dropped her off at the door and she walked in. I circled the parking lot to make sure she went in - don't laugh, you'd do it too...maybe. Anyway, as I drove away I heard a song on the radio by Darius Rucker (anyone remember Hootie and the Blowfish?). It was called "It won't be like this for long". I almost cried on the second verse. Ok, maybe I had something in my eye... Check it out.

I'm planning a Daddy/Daughter dance at church. It's not on the calendar yet, but I think it will be a good song for that. That's it for now...
