Hope and Sydney competed again in the Awana Bible Quizzing Competition. Their team took first place (above). Sydney's paddle quiz (the oral portion of the competition in which the kids raise a paddle with their multiple-choice answer) and written quiz were perfectly done and she was one of just five kids to have perfect overall scores.
Hope had a perfect written test (pictured below with her purple ribbon), and just missed one on the paddle quiz. It was one of the hardest questions, asking which Scripture reference was the support for a particular topic. She was keenly disappointed since it happened to be one we studied multiple times, but we were so proud of the way she handled her disappointment.
