Hark the Herald Angels Sing (and so does Harbin)

Ok, so my blogging sebatical was not intentional but was instead due to some much needed time off in order to take care of sick babies- more to come on that in another post. So in order to catch up, be prepared for MANY posts this week hopefully with some added creativity and style!

This year Harbin and the rest of the Ultimate Adventure Choir have been rehearsing diligently each Wednesday night for the "Glory in the Highest" Christmas Musical. His practice CD was given to him months ago and we have been listening to the Christmas music in the car since just after Labor Day (take that all you people who complain about Christmas music playing right after Halloween :)

Anyways, I volunteered to make the top part of the angel costumes and many late nights later, I finished the 30 angel costumes. The kids looked awesome in all their costumes and their singing was wonderful.
Harbin, along with the other boys, kindergarten through 5th grade, were shephards and the girls were all angels (with the exception of Mary and Joseph). The musical incorporated acting and singing and I was impressed with everyone's ability to remember the words. I was also HIGHLY impressed with my son's ability to sing and stand still- an ability not possessed by many of the other kindergarten and first grade boys who were often sitting, spinning, or looking aimlessly around the room. He was incredible and I know that he has loved choir this year. His choir teachers are awesome and along with practicing for the rehearsal he has learned some basic music skills like high and low notes, how to cut off with a conductor's cue and a cute song about the books of the Bible.
That's all for now, but stay tuned this week for these posts...
