They haven't sung on stage on Sunday morning yet, but this past Sunday all of the kids had a rehearsal to practice being on the stage. It took place right after church on Sunday morning for just a few minutes, so there were still lots of adults hanging around. It was a good test to see which kids are shy and which aren't. For reference, I was always one of the shy kids. Kevin says he was too.
The smallest children are only on the stage for one song: He's Got The Whole World In His Hands. Kate knows all the motions and practices them in the car. She loves music. She's 19 months though, so I didn't expect her to do the motions or sing when they actually performed, and of course she didn't. She wanted to watch all of the big kids.
She was NOT shy though and when they were finished, her teacher (Brandee) asked if she was ready to get down. Kate's reply?
"No. No, no."
Oh, no. She did not want to get off of the stage. She wanted to stay up there with the big kids and be in the spotlight. Brandee's response to that was "A star is born!". Ha! We have got our work cut out for us.
Stay tuned to see how she does in the REAL performance in a few more weeks.
