Wow, the emails came out of the woodworks on that one. Let me first apologize to Noah via the blogosphere. He doesn't deserve that much bad press. I also must apologize to you all who had to read the mindless ramblings of an embarrassed mom. As my mother-in-law pointed out, it really was kind of funny. Steve also had a very good insight to the whole thing: the situation was uncomfortable for everybody while the kids were being rearranged...the entire sanctuary was so quiet you could hear a pin drop...Noah just felt the need to fill the void. It was indeed "precious" The fact that my pastor was smiling when I was in the office this morning reassured me that it really felt like more of a deal to me than anyone else. So I am sorry to all of you. I will refrain from Noah venting for a very long time.
I will, however, show a couple of cute pictures of the event, as well as a few others from the weekend. It actually was a pretty fun weekend.
Here's Noah before the practice, being the teacher and making a "checklist" of everything we would do in choir this morning.
Here the are lined up, in order mind you, ready to perform. Noah is right in front on the left. Isn't he handsome?
Here is the choir performing with their chimes. Noah is on the top right with the red collar.
The boys also got out on their bikes for the first time this year. Aaron was on a little tricycle that was Noah's a few years ago, but his long legs couldn't bend so we put him on Noah's old 10 inch bike with training wheels. He pedaled way better than I ever expected he would. It's going to be a fun summer with these two.
I think I am the only mom who doesn't care to push their almost 6 year old to lose the training wheels. He'll do it when he's ready. Same with tying shoe laces.
We also got out and played soccer and tee ball in the backyard this weekend. I can't believe the changes they make over the winter. Our backyard used to seem big enough to play in. now that the kids are bigger, it seems they play bigger too. We may be spending a lot of time in the field at the park this summer.
We also spent some time with my friend Mary and her three kids, as well as celebrating Deb's Abby's 7th birthday at Playworld. Mary has a brand new baby that Steve held more than anyone else pretty much all weekend. I had left my camera at church, so I will direct you to Deb's site which I know will show pictures from the weekend . She was snapping A LOT of pictures.!!!
Have a great Monday and please return. I promise to be nice from now on.
