Church KiDS Christmas Party

Last Wednesday night KiDS service for the year so of course we had to have a big Christmas party! We had cookies and lemonade (hot cocoa for the volunteers) and 137 kids! It was crazy! The kids had a great time though, we watched part of Charlie Brown Christmas and The Grinch, and played Minute to Win It games. The kids had a great time, and so did I. Love those kids!

Regan got picked to play "Reindeer Nosedive", which is a game where you have a cotton ball tied to a string, and you put one end in your mouth and swing your head around trying to get the cotton ball to stick to the end of your nose, where you have a giant blob of Vaseline! Regan looked so cute trying it, so of course, I video taped. Click here for the video!

Riley had Pfamily Pfun night at his school, so David went with him to that. They had the high school counselors there and they could start picking which classes they want to take next year. David talked to one of Riley's teachers and she told him he is in the top 10% of kids in the whole school in that class. That he's 85% done with what they are doing for the year, and is on track to be the first kid to ever finish that program! We are so proud of him this year. He's really realizing he needs good grades to do what he wants to do in life, and he's being more responsible about getting and keeping those grades up. We do have a few issues in a couple of classes, like Algebra, and of course, I'm no help to him there! But he's wanting it, and that's a step in the right direction for sure!
