The Story

Our church has been doing a 31 week church-wide sermon series and small group study called The Story.  As a culmination to the study, the kids performed the stories from their perspective this Sunday. 
Our little star was shining on Sunday.  For such a quiet, reserved kid, he did a great job breaking out of his shell. 
Bryce had two lines that we have been practicing for the past few weeks.  At first, I wasn't sure we'd get him to memorize them, but as time went by, he got better and better.  I am so thankful to Thomas' mom for getting one of his lines on video.  I was so busy watching him and saying the lines along side him, I barely even thought to get Jason to snap this picture of him!

He worked so hard on this and we are so proud of him!  He did just as well with his first line too!

Bryce could not wait to swing his sling around for the song "A Boy Named David".  Of all the songs we practiced for the program, this was by far, Emmy's favorite song,
Emmy got to make her debut as the kids sang "Jesus Loves the Little Children".  She was so funny when she got on stage.  They originally put her between two other girls, but she found Taylor and went and stood beside her!

She clapped and danced right along with everyone else!

Jason and I look forward to going to our small group each week, but it's such a blessing that our kids look so forward to it too!
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

They were all so cute! And, I love how the whole congregation gasped as your 4 year old rattled off his lines without a hitch and hit every word! Nailed it! ;) Thanks again for inviting Thomas to be apart of it.
