The kids have been having such a great time in their classes at church. It's truly a warm place and the kids have a lot of fun while also getting some spiritual education. I was so excited when the kids decided to participate in the Christmas Pageant. Samantha was an angel, of course, which not only meant a very pretty costume which she loved, but also singing "Go tell it on the mountain." At the first practice Samantha did not utter a word and sat on my lap the entire time. I thought, Oh dear.
But she persisted and soon she was singing away with the other angels and loved to pop up when the angels popped up over the manger. She did such a great job and I was so proud to see her up there on her own like such a big kid. *sniff*
