Trying to avoid being a star-struck mommy who posts full-length videos of every performance my kids ever do, but there were some nice stage moments over the Christmas season.
Katya’s kindergarten class puts on a cute little holiday show–incidentally, the first performance on our new school’s stage!
Nathan participated in the annual Baylor Music Studio play-in, performing Silent Night and participating enthusiastically in all the silly game-events that go with that evening:)
The kids’ gingerbread house provided a nice centerpiece for our play-in refreshment table.
Not quite a public performance, but Katya created this block “picture” on the floor and begged me to send the picture to her grandmas, so I will put it here in fulfillment of that request.
Finally, my favorite performance by far, the annual children’s Christmas Pageant at church.
Nathan played his Silent Night again as part of the prelude, and one of my violin students also performed her piece.
Katya worked and worked to proudly say her line loud and clear: “And Mary knew these things were precious and pondered them in her heart.”
Nathan said, “And Mary went up to the hill country to visit her cousin Elizabeth, who was also with child. And when Elizabeth saw her, the baby inside Elizabeth leaped for joy. And in a loud voice, Elizabeth said…” He also sang a verse of “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night.”
Than, of course, did his usual stellar job of being behind the scenes, directing lights and tech crew and all kinds of moving parts. The story is always worth watching, familiar as it is, and we were honored to have so many great-grandparents able to attend, as well as grandparents and aunts. Thanks, supportive family!
