Master Clubs Regionals

April 22, 2006
Regionals #8

Our church has a program for children ages 3 to grade 6. The program is called Master Clubs. I help with the 3rd graders every Wednesday night during the school year. On Saturday, the children in grades 3 to 6 were able to compete in a competition against other churhes in the area called Regionals. The Master Club Regionals are the largest competitions of the year. The children competed in bible events, music events, craft events, team events and athletic events. ALL the children did so well, I was so happy and so excited for them. This was my first year at this huge event (150 children, 10 churches) and I had a BLAST! I can't wait to get working on next year. This was my daughter's first year too (the blonde). Although she did not receive a ribbon, she still had tons of fun and is ready for next year.

FUN with KNITTING - Answer

Congratulations to Joan of TX. She guessed 26 dishcloths in the stack and received the prize box on the right. Her name was picked out of a hat by my daughter.

Debbie of IN also guessed 26 and received a box of yarn.

Thanks so much for all who played. I had a ball making all those cloths.

I'm having a little fun with my Monthly Dishcloth group. The knitters had to guess how many dishcloths were stacked up. It took me a couple weeks to knit all of them, but it was fun and I got to try a bunch of different patterns.

If you knit and think you might like to knit some dishcloths, come join the group. We KAL (knit-a-long) to two dishcloth patterns a month. The first pattern has a seasonal theme and the second one has a "new" stitch to learn. Come on, its fun!

While eating my breakfast this morning at 7:15 am, I saw a black cloud roll across the sky. Then a loud boom, then some wind, then SNOW, yes SNOW.
