Well on May 17th Lilly and Reid had their first "school" program. Reid's Kid's Day Out class came out and sang, "Jesus Loves Me" and "This Little Light of Mine."
Reid, however, looked up at all the lights on the stage. I thought it was pretty cute even if he didn't sing a word or do any motions. They said during practice they would ask if he was going to sing with them and he would say, "Nope!" However it wasn't wasted energy on the teachers' part because he loves to sing them at home!
They got to tie-dye their own shirts. Reid, of course, wanted his to be blue. That is always the color he picks if he has a choice! (: When Reid's teacher talked about him she said he wants to be a farmer. That made me laugh but I know it is because he LOVES LOVES LOVES all farm animals!
Lilly's class sang scripture songs that included Philippians 4:13, Zachariah 4:6, Proverbs 3:5-6, and Jeremiah 33:3. I actually teach this to her class and my KDO class together. It was kind of hard because I was up there leading it for both classes but I kept catching myself watching Lilly. She did SO GREAT! I was a proud Mommy!! I was also a proud teacher because both classes did super!
This is the part where they sing, "Oooo"
Taking a singing break to play with the pigtails. (:
Ok so this makes me smile every. single. time. When they sing Jeremiah 33:3, they are supposed to hold up three fingers and make them bounce. Lilly holds up four fingers every time and sings, "firty-free-free"--it warms my heart!!
And this is my favorite. This is her eyes closed worshiping for just a few seconds. PRECIOUS!!
And then Matt took this picture of her playing with a puzzle after her performance!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
