{I don't get to go to children's church?!?}

Mother's Day is always something special at FCC. I think this day should be added to the list of days when more people than normal show up at church you know, at their mother's request. Today was a little different though...we had praise and worship but no sermon. The time was used to give out 12 scholarships to 12 different women who are continuing their education. The Lisa Canady Scholarship Fund is something that the women's ministry in FCC created to encourage/help/inspire the women of the church.
After giving away the scholarships the essay that each recipient wrote for the scholarship was read as well...that took some time, we have this ceremony of sorts where they give out flowers to different mothers like: the mother that has the youngest baby in church my sister won this one with my nephew coming in at 8 weeks old... or the mother who has the most children/grandchildren/etc in church the pastor's wife's mother won this one with 21 people in church. wow!
It took the entire church service to get all of this done today...which my neice was not happy about at all. Apparently she had been waiting to be release so she could go to children's church...When church was dismissed, she looked around and said, "Where are they going? I don't get to go to children's church?!?!?" At 4.5 years old, this girl is certainly entertaining. Ha.

Some shots from the service...kind of picture heavy...
