Last Saturday, Josiah was able to participate in the AWANAS Grand Prix now that he is a Spark. He was unbelievably excited about racing his "Blue Bomber". This being his first race, we had no idea what to expect. We only had time to help him paint his car blue. His was the only car there that didn't even have headlights. We had no idea that kids really get creative with these cars. Oh, well, next time! Despite his lack of accessories, we must have got the weight distributed pretty well. Josiah had a blast racing and won 5 medals (two 1st place, two 2nd place and one 3rd place). Can you tell by the picture that he's just a little bit excited? Trust me, everyone in the room new he won! He's a very enthusiastic kid...hum, kind of like me :P !
Mom and Larry came over for the event. They are so good about coming over for the kid's activities. Josiah and Hailey were thrilled to see them. Hailey's always happy to see "her Larry Pop". They have a really special bond. How about those yard sale boots? Aren't they adorable? Michael was able to be there, too, which even made it more special for Josiah. Of course, he had the loudest cheering section when he raced, since we're such quiet people ;) He's already making plans for next year. He's thinking camo for decorations... surprise, surprise!
