Church Christmas Play

Our choir contata/play was on Dec 16th during the evening service.  I started feeling really yucky the day before, but I had people praying for me to be able to make it through and I was able to sing.  In the morning service, I "lip synced" some of the parts of the choir song as I felt I was about to cough otherwise, but I didn't need to do that during the play.  I sucked on cough drops between songs and my throat was killing me by the end, but I made it!  In the pictures, I look distressed most of the time!  That is due in part to not feeling well and sucking on cough drops as well as the spot lights shining at us during the play parts (I don't do well with bright lights!)  My dad was the "grumpy jewelry store keeper" .

School Christmas Program

The school Christmas program includes Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders, so Sarah was not involved this year. 

William is the first person on the left in the front row

In between motions, Will put his hands in his pockets, but he was doing them ☺

Emily is the 4th from the right in the front row

Emily kept shielding her eyes trying to locate us in the crowd

Finale - We wish you a Merry Christmas

William is 3rd from the right in the front row and Emily is in the 2nd row behind the boy with the red and blue striped shirt and the girl with the multi-colored striped dress.

Children's Museum Field Trip

William's class went on another field trip last week.  They went to the Grand Rapids Children's Museum.  I hadn't been there in probably 10 years!  We had just under an hour and a half and we could have easily used twice that amount of time.  I was rushing them through things at the end just so they could see everything!
