Jonah’s Druthers…

Our children’s ministry at church put on the musical Jonah’s Druthers.  It was a darling take on the story of Jonah…with a western twist!  Caroline has been practicing hard every Sunday afternoon for the past couple of months and was excited to perform!  They all did a FANTASTIC job!

Sweet little cowgirl…we are so proud of how well you did!  You smiled the entire time…and REALLY got into all of the dance moves.  We love watching you up on stage!

A few months ago Caroline came home talking about the school talent show.  Caroline said she wanted to be in it, but couldn’t decide what she should do.  She thought about playing the piano (she had been taking lessons for all of 2 weeks).  She thought about singing.  She finally decided on making up a dance/gymnastics routine (she’s never taken a dance class in her life).  We love and admire Caroline’s complete confidence in herself to try new things.  So she started working really hard at making up a routine to a Justin Bieber song.  She used some moves off of Just Dance 4…and she just made up the rest.  I was so surprised that when I watched her she would do the exact same move at the same part of the song each time.

She couldn’t wait to perform on the stage!  She wasn’t nervous AT ALL!  She was just precious up on that big stage all by herself!   She did a GREAT job…and is already talking about performing again next year:).

Waiting for her turn…

Leighton…Caroline’s biggest fan…practiced right along with Caroline every night and had the entire routine memorized!  She couldn’t take her eyes off of Caroline on that big stage:).  They already figured out that when Caroline is in 3rd grade and Leighton is in Kindergarten they are going to do a routine together for the talent show!  I treasure their sweet relationship!

After the performance Caroline’s teacher came up to congratulate her.  She then told me, “Never in a MILLION years would I have thought that sweet and quiet Caroline would get up there and dance all by herself!”

We are SO proud of you sweet Caroline!

Ben coached Carter’s basketball team…the Vipers… again this year.  Most of the boys on the team go to school with Carter…which is a lot of fun!  Carter really enjoys playing basketball…and LOVES having his dad as the coach!  The boys worked so hard and improved each and every game.  What a fun season!
