Shelby the Reporter

     Shelby has been in Awana since she was 4 years old.  Awana stands for Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed.  It is basically a program where kids memorize lots of scripture and play games.  There are rewards etc...

     Anyway, back in the very early spring, she had an assignment where she could choose one thing out of a list of several things.  She, of course, chose the one that she would be able to star in.

     She chose to do the story about Jesus taking the loaves of bread and feeding the 5000+ people with it.

     Please note:  1)  She did not have a script.  This is totally fly by the seat of her pants reporting.  2)  The children have plates with a bit of bread on them and a goldfish cut out of construction paper. (Yes, in one scene, Gracie is eating the paper goldfish.)  3)  She got all dressed up and had me do her hair so she looked like a professional reporter.  4)  This is the kind of stuff she gets kids in the neighborhood to agree to all the time.

Well, she hasn't lost her charm since she was in diapers...gotten even funnier I think. Ok, so "Jesus" and Jackson seem very...happy(?) to be a part of the production. :o)
Oh, I nominated you for a blog award today so if they e-mail you don't be suprised.

Shelby's enthusiasm is AMAZING! She really has a knack for this! I am way impressed!

When she asked if giving up his lunch gave him a rush of excitement and he answered, "Yep" I thought I'd die!

That's precious! I'm pretty sure that's how Katy Couric got her start.
