I Am One Proud Momma

So, not yesterday, but the previous Sunday, Madison started Sparks, which is part of AWANAS. I had wanted to start her at the beginning of the year (back in September), but when we found out that Alex was deploying, we decided to wait until he was gone to send her, so that she could have as much daddy time as possible. Well, this little girl has blown me away with her ability to memorize. She is soaking it all up and just LOVING her blue team and all of the fun they have.

This morning, we were at school a little early and her Sparks booklet was in the car, so I thought I'd quiz her on one of the verses she had to memorize (they earn points for the verses they memorize and at the end of the year they can earn patches and pins to add to their vest). Each letter in SPARKS stands for something and has a verse that goes along with it. When I started quizzing Madison, I was blown away that she knew every single letter and every single verse! Her blue team is on the last S this week and I thought it was going to take a few weeks to catch her up to speed with everyone else, but this morning she new them all. Anyway, I decided to record it tonight so that Alex could see it and so that all of you can see what she's been up to!

In other news, we also learned today that Madison is going to have to have surgery to remove her adenoids and to have tubes put in her ears. We don't have an exact date yet, but it will be soon (once we have the insurance approval). Anyway, here is a picture of her waiting to see her ENT.

Hopefully that will take care of her coughing, etc. issues!
