Last week Kaden's children's choir sang in church, this week was Lake's turn. One of the songs the kids sang, they also signed (as in sign language). I must say I was really impressed with my kid, not just because he is terribly cute and I made him (with help of course),but because he knew every sign and didn't miss a beat! His aunt Lisa would have been so proud (she signs for the deaf people in her church). They all did a wonderful job --- they have wonderful choir leaders (one of whom might be reading this and is one of my favorite people - and I am not just kissing up either!). Anyway, here are a few pics from last night.
Here is Lake talking to his friend, Cassidy before they sang.....Lake loves to talk.......sometimes his need to socialize gets him into trouble at school, but I cant really say much since I never got a report card that didn't have a check mark beside the words "Does not Control her Talking"...............
Making a joyful noise.
Kaden sitting beside daddy (the headless figure in the orange sweater) waiting for time to go to his choir class....we had to come early for Lake to practice...and yes, that is a kool-aid mustache he is wearing.
This is me trying to look like a nice, patient mommy while fussing at Kaden for playing with my camera and not being still - while I was fussing through closed teeth, he inadvertently snapped a picture ---not at the best angle either----Mental note: teach the kids to take flattering pictures of me, not ones that make me look like the Hunchback on Notre Dame.
Blurry shot of me and Lake at his school on the day of the high school's homecoming. Lake will go to a different high school than I did...the school he will go to was a rival of ours.......Even though the school he will attend always has a better team than we
So I have been meme-tagged by my friend, Sandi. The rules are :Grab the closest book to you, turn to page 56, start with the 5th sentence, and post 2-5 paragraphs........So, you know we have 2 small kids, right? Yeah, well, as painful as this might be (especially for mothers who will recognize which book this is from as soon as they read the first line), I am playing along and playing fair........so, let me apologize in advance for the following excerpt........here goes:
Who was back in the house?
Why, the cat!
"Have no fear of this mess,"
Said the Cat in the Hat.
"I always pick up all my playthings and so....
I will show you another good trick that I know!"
Then we saw him pick up all the things that were down
He picked up the cake and the rake and the gown,
And the milk and the strings
And the book and the dish
And the fan and the cup,
And the ship and the fish,
And he put them away
Then he said, "That is that."
And then he was gone with a tip of his hat.
Then our mother came in and she said to us two
"Did you have any fun, tell me, what did you do?"
And Sally and I did not know What to say
Should we tell her the things that went on there that day?
All of you mothers (who are bored enough with life to still be reading this) know this book well and can finish the last lines from memory.
For an interesting read on the upcoming election, check this out at Rapture Ready --- scroll down to the second article about Electing God's Way.
Hopefully, I will be back later in the week with something you might actually care to read.
