So how is everyone doing with the teacher walkouts? I know most of you have the policy that if school is out there is no Awana, but I think in this instance it would be a good idea to make an exception. The kids need this part of their lives to stay routine. They need their Godly role models to be there for them when others that they generally rely on can't be there.
Our own kids are homeschooled, so they are still plodding along, but I would ask prayer for them anyway as we have some major life changes we are dealing with in our household. Sometimes our adult problems spill over to affect our kids no matter how hard we try to protect them - whether it's our biological kids or the masses of kids that we "adopt" on a regular basis.
