First off, my apologies to anyone who read the blog earlier today with all the colors. I thought it might be neat to change things up a bit, so I editted the format a little (see my new three columns format?) and added on the link to Larry's blog (see the left column) and I changed up the colors. But, after looking at the blog a little more tonight, I decided that it was a little too much for my eyes....and I switched colors again. This time, I went with AOL's "sky blue" layout. We'll see if I stick with it. AOL offers 10 or 12 basic color choices & then you can customize & change up the colors if you want to get creative. That's what I did earlier, but I decided the basic color choices would work better for my eyeballs. (& hopefully for yours, too!)
Anyway....as promised, this is installment #2.
Tonight was the 2nd quarter awards ceremony for Royal Rangers & Missionettes. First up was the girls! Sarah is a Prim. She got several badges & answered several questions on stage in front of the audience & she didn't even seem nervous! Way to go Sarah. Here she is on stage.
After all the girls got their awards, the boys got theirs. Samuel is a...umm...Ranger something. I feel awful that I always forget the name of his group, but it's a little confusing. The whole group is called Royal Rangers, but then they have the ages divided up into Ranger Kids, Discovery Rangers, and...something else. Anyway, I can never remember which one he is. I think he's a Discovery Ranger but I could be getting that all wrong. Anyway, while he was on stage, he got to say a memory verse into the microphone. My camera was getting low on batteries, so I had to turn it off between pictures to conserve power. I caught this one as he finished speaking & turned to hand the microphone back to his teacher.
Shoot! I wasn't quick enough to get him facing me with the microphone. :( So I had to try again.
Ah, well..I was close.
I was so proud of both kids. They both received lots of new badges & they did very well on stage in front of a bunch of other kids & their parents. Way to go, guys!
