AWANA stories of the day

Tonight, one of the boys, D, was trying to get the girls' attention at game time to toss them the ball for their turn to do the relay. He made eye contact with one of them and gently tossed the ball toward her. She remained motionless as the ball bounced a few times then rolled right past her. She watched it roll away, uninterested, and turned back around to talk to her friends.

D watched in stunned silence and then looked up at me.

"I do not understand what girls are thinking," he said, exasperated.

I busted out laughing.

"Yep," I agreed, apathetically. "Get used to that, because it's not going to change."


Tonight, as a part of an illustration in council time, Tiffany asked the kids to raise their hand if they had been to a foreign country. A bunch of kids raised their hands, and she called on them one by one.

"Where have you been?" she asked, as she pointed at one of the kids.

"China," the little girl replied.

"Wow! That's great! And what about you?" she asked another.

"Mexico," they answered.

"Oooh, cool," she said, and pointed at another. "And what country did you visit?"

"Alabama," the girl answered.
