Rainbows Doughnuts with Dad & An Honors Ceremony

The Rainbows (Chloe & Evan's Wednesday night church group) celebrated Father's Day a couple of weeks ago by inviting their dads to the annual Doughnuts with Dad night! Chris had two classes that evening, but he was able to squeeze in an appearance in between classes.

The following Wednesday, the Rainbows had an Honors Ceremony! At the Honors Ceremony, all the children were recognized for the successful memorization of Bible verses. This ceremony was extra special because the children that were graduating to the next group (according to grade) were honored. Since Chloe is an October baby and won't start Kindergarten for another year, we have one more year before she becomes an "honor." It was really a sweet and sometimes emotional ceremony, especially for the girls that were graduating from the program altogether to become a part of the Youth Group.

Here were our little Rainbows.

Prior to ceremony, I asked Evan if he wanted to go on stage, since he was new to the group and had only earned one badge. (He was set to begin in the month of June, but decided he wanted to start attending after the Mother's Day celebration in May, which also happened to be the week after his 3rd birthday. He's becoming a "big boy" which is bittersweet for me.) He decided that he wanted to go on stage and he was so cute!

He didn't know what to think of it. Chloe was a little calmer, less fidgety, than she usually is on stage. I think that the calm collected big sister was kicking in:)

Afterwards, we caught up with Maevelyn, Chloe's bestie from Rainbows. She was an honor and is no longer a Rainbow. I'm not sure how Chloe will take it once she realizes it.

I'm so glad that both littles are involved in this program. I'm so thankful to the group leaders, Mrs. Dodi and Mr. Jason, for all that they do to teach my little ones about Jesus, the Bible, and being good Christians.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.~Proverbs 22:6


  1. Such a neat religious program for your kiddos. :) I didn't realize that my Autumn and your Chloe are in the same grade. :)

    1. They are, which is one of the many reasons that I enjoy reading your blog. I love the blogging community because you get a glimpse into other people's lives that are sort of similar to your own and see how many different, but wonderful, ways people celebrate life.
