3rd Grade Christmas program, starring Andrew with a solo :)

The Christmas programs at Northwood Academy are always one of my favorite times of the year. They are so fun and truly focus on the real meaning of CHRISTmas. This fall Andrew came home and told me he got a solo for the Christmas program. To be honest I was quite shocked. Andrew has always been a behind the scenes kinda guy, not wanting to draw too much attention to himself, very unlike his sister!! Well, I think this amazing boy is coming out of his shell. He sang beautifully and so in tune!! We invited our sweet friend (Miss) Kristina Brooks to come along which was so wonderful. We went to breakfast at one of our most favorite places afterwards (Waffle House) abd Andrew said the blessing for us b/c he was the "man" of the day! He was a little embarrassed at first to do it but he did it and it was music to this mom's ears to hear her child pray aloud in front of people. What a great day! The only thing that would have made it even better would have been to have Kira singing in her program as well. Unfortunately that morning she woke up and told me she did not feel real good. I asked her if she wanted to try and go to school since it was the day of her program and she had practiced so hard, she said ok. Well, as I was fixing her hair, she said "Mommy, I have spots in my eyes" - YIKES, that's all I had to hear to tell her to go back to bed and sleep. I most certainly did not want her passing out anywhere, especially up on stage. My poor girl had a virus and missed her program this year. I did not think it would bother me so much until I arrived at the school a little early and was able to watch the end of her class - it truly brought tears to my eyes that my poor girl had to miss it :( She was fine a day later and she definitely got some cuddle time when I got home. Enjoy the pics - one day I'll figure out how to post a video and let you see/hear Andrew sing :) Oh if you enlarge the pics, you'll see that the kids shirts have the whole Luke 2 story written as the Christmas tree! Pretty neat ideas this school has!
