This year was Eli's first year participating in AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed 2 Tim 2:15) at our own church. It's a Bible memory program for kids 2yrs to 6th grade and is open to public, not just our church. The kids, including Eli, worked hard all year long memorizing a new verse every week, and at the end of the year they are rewarded for their efforts!
It started with fun and games and food...
And then the big event every was waiting for (well, besides awards itself). Donation coins to throw pie in Commander Bill's face.
