Giddyup Gideon!!

The big musical of the year for the elementary students(1-6) was Tuesday night. This is a production that is worked on all year long. The kids were great!! This great Bible story was told with a cowboy flavor. We truly enjoyed the experience.

Here is Julianna singing with her class.

Samuel listens intently.

Here he is singing his solo.

I think Lydia knew I was taking her picture.

I caught Joseph working on his conducting skills while we were cleaning up.

I decided to serve an authentic cowboy meal before going to the program--soup beans with ham and cornbread.

I was very touched when I heard the kids singing "Torches and Trumpets for the Lord." I used this as an opportunity to remind them that this is what life is all about--being an instrument to be used by God.
If you are interested in seeing the program, it was live-streamed. I am not sure if it is on the archives yet, but probably will be soon.

Love the picture of your son conducting. A Doyle Bozone Jr for sure. I'm sure it was quite a musical number after that meal. And I'm so wanting beans and cornbread now. Yum

Cute pictures! Looks like fun. Katie is pretty impressed with Lydia's cowgirl outfit.

It was such a fun evening. I think I might have even teared up a little on the Torches and Trumpets song.
You were doing good to get a cowboy meal cooked. I hope it didn't have any adverse affects on your kids during the program.
I also love the picture of Joseph conducting. He looks like he really knows what he's doing.
