Sing it loud, sing it proud

We enjoyed three performances this past week that the girls participated in. Kippy's had two programs, one in the afternoon and one in the evening, which were small and intimate and very entertaining although a bit long {nearly two hours}. The kindergartners are always a crowd-pleaser with their impatience and unpredictability. They didn't disappoint this year either!
There are only 10 kids in Kippy's third grade class, which is divided evenly between boys and girls. This is a pic from the afternoon performance.
Kippy also volunteered to play Silent Night as a piano solo. Kippy had Grandma Shirley, great-uncle Jim, great-aunt Esther and aunt Maribeth cheering her on in the audience.
Here she is singing loud and proud during the evening performance.
I was lucky to get her to stop and slowdown so I could take one photo with Grandpa Rod and Grandma Rose who came to the evening show.
Abby had a Choir concert with 6th, 7th and 8th grades performing. She is in the front row, 4th from the left.
The size of her 7th grade class makes it hard to see her. I added a red circle and arrow just to point her out in the crowd. The music quality and talent is abundant in this group and it was a very enjoyable concert.
And Abby was lucky to have Grandma Shirley, great-uncle Jim and great-aunt Esther attend her performance as well! It is a long drive for family to come from out of town to watch the girls. It means so much to us and we are grateful to have family visit during this special time as we prepare for Christ's birth.
