I love the Christmas programs my children "perform" (if you will) in.
Yesterday was the first.
The morning started with great fun- as soon as I suggested that Isaiah wear pants (and not scare pants, his favorite plain shorts) the meltdown began. "I don't want to sing, it makes me scared, I want to stay home mommy" and on and on it went. I finally got him into his "fly" clothes and I dropped him off at pre-school.
The Kingom Kids Christmas program started at 10AM on a Friday morning. Seriously people, don't you know what that does to the kids- seeing mommy in the middle of the morning- OF COURSE they all start crying to go home. Anyway, I attended all my meetings and took early lunch. Arriving right on time 10:03 a.m. :) I wasn't sure what to expect- based on our early morning antics.
The air was filled with excitement. Cameras, vidoe cameras - and IPHONES everyway. Beaming parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles. so fun.
The classes performed by age.
The three's were precious- I don't remember too much about their songs, but they all seemed to find their mommy's and greet them appropriately... HI MOMMY- THERES MY MOMMY :)
and then it was Isaiah's class' turn.. they marched in like little indians-
at least he wasn't crying - and was wearing long pants
but he came around and sang beautifully- Santa Clause is Coming to Town, and Go, tell it on the Mountain. Total time- abour 4.5 minutes.
Then they all came together for a wonderful rendition of "We wish you a Merry Christmas"
"Hi Mommy!" Hi Baby... I want to go home mommy, Landon's going home!
yea, again with the mid-morning ideas. I need to have a talk with the planners.
I walked him to his room, reminded him the wonderful smell was school pizza and assured him I'd be back for him later.
and I was back home and working by 10:45a.m.
I do love this time of year. Today, we're off today to see Santa.
