We're not doing our church's Wednesday night Awana program this year.
It's a great program. Great for the kids. Great leaders. Great way to encourage memorizing Bible verses.
But it was too much for our family this year. Too much rush. Too much last minute reading and memorizing as we were rushing through dinner on Wednesdays. Too much hurry. I feel like I'm always telling my kids to hurry. Ugh.
So we decided to make Wednesday nights a family night. The tv stays off... we play outside... we swing... we go for walks... we play games... we paint pumpkins...
Nothing fancy. Nothing too impressive. But we're together.
And it's nice.
Maybe next year I'll feel less stress. Maybe next year I'll feel less hurried. Maybe next year we'll try Awana's again.
But this year... a relaxing family night is nice.
