Gloria and Danya graduated from the Awanas program at our church on May 17th. They looked so cute, and we were very proud of them! Gloria was very mature this time and didn't act silly on stage. Daniel had gotten the last few patches sewed onto her vest just in time for the ceremony!
Danya received extra recognition as one of the few Sparks who not only completed the main book but also the entire review of every verse in the book and an additional book with harder verses.
The girls did an amazing job especially considering that Daniel and I were erratic at best in helping them to memorize the verses. On a few occasions we just read over the verses on the way TO their Wednesday night classes. Yet the girls still managed to excel! Next year we will try to be more diligent and prepared.
