Our first performance

For the past four years or so my hubby has been working on our dream which is to have a family worship band.

We are pretty excited because Friday night will be the debut performance! (AKA playing for people who aren't related to us!) ; )

Our home school group is having a talent night, so we've been doing lots of practicing this week.

At first we were just going to have all the kids play a song together, but they aren't used to playing without Dad, so he's going to do it with them. ~And are they ever glad about that!

Andrew is on his way to being a great guitar player but he hasn't had enough time to learn the song yet, so he and I are sitting this one out.
They are going to play 'Draw Me Close.'
Joy is also going to be in a beautiful dance to one of the Newsboys songs
with a bunch of the girls in the group.
It should be a fun night.

Who will be sure to get it all on video for the olive plants' grandparents! : )

Oh my gosh that is so awesome. I would love to have my kids do something like this some day. Wish I could be there for your debut.

Great job! Great idea for a family who loves music to pool their talents into something very worthwhile.
