Christmas Programs

Both the boys had their school's Christmas program on the same day this year. Cole's was in the morning and as always, being a preschool, was well organized chaos.
Cole--center in the red and green untucked shirt. It was a rookie mistake sending a 3 year old boy in a shirt that needed to remain tucked in. He looked a bit dishevled. Shayne whispered, "Who is that kid's mother?" Funny thing though, if this had happened with my first child, it would've been a disaster to me. With the second child, it was merely unfortunate. I'm mellowing.

The 3 year olds performed Away in a Manger, Oh Christmas Tree and Up on the Housetop
Travis' program was that evening and held in a church sanctuary. It was A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, a very reverent service first held at King's College in 1918. It was a lengthy worship service requiring audience participation and a good bit of it was in Latin. We arrived early to get a good (front row) seat for videoing and soon realized that the balcony might have been a better choice to wrestle a bored 3 year old. But, when Travis' class made their appearance, we were glad to have such a great vantage point for photos.

The first grade performed Away in a Manger and Infant Holy, Infant Lowly
