Putting in my Audience Time

It is the season of music here. Not only has Checkered been listening to Christmas music since November 1, but this is the week of plays and recitals. Sunday was the Christmas play at church where two of our boys did some acting. See the leukemia/hope shirt? Checkered made that. He's a mighty talented guy!




This boy made us proud just by being in front of a crowd - a very difficult challenge for him. He never sang a single word or did the hand motions, but he stood there up there the entire time, and that was wonderful.


Last night was a vocal recital. Our daughter did admirably when the accompaniment track played for her was NOT the track she had used in rehearsal. Our son? Well, he enjoys the spotlight.

Tonight is the high school choir concert, and then we're done until January when the kids' musicals begin.

Honestly, I think the entertainment value has been amazing.

This is so wonderful. How do you live with so many talented people in one house??? Congrats to everyone. Not a soul in our house can sing well. And that is sad because we all 'like' to sing.
