Madeline's teacher finally called. She says Madeline's class will be on Tuesday nights. That works really well with my schedule. No leaving work (after working 12 hours), pick Madeline & Malachi up from daycare, take Madeline to baton class, run home, fix dinner for the boys, run back to pick Madeline up and come back home to bathe/put kids to bed) I'm off all day Tuesday. So, tomorrow, Madeline goes to baton class. She's very excited. She's been a bit bored since school let out.
Daniel is in Decatur at "work camp". He was excited to get to go to that. He loves anything that the youth group does.
My little Malachi just made me proud. He knows the words to the chorus of "Days of Elijah". He grabs one of the ends of Madeline's jump rope and uses it as a microphone. He was singing at the top of his lungs--
Behold He comes
Riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun
At the trumpet call
So lift your voice
It's the year of jubilee
Out of Zion's hill salvation comes.
Very little makes me prouder than to hear my children sing God's praises. I've often said that music fills me with joy--well, hearing my children sing can bring tears to my eyes.
Hope something has given you much joy today . . .
Behold he comes
Riding on a .....
And step by step
you will leave me alone
and I will follow you
all the way home
But I do love it when she sings church songs even if the words aren't there, it still feels like a success in parenting!!
