A couple of summers ago the kids sang the national anthem before a Memphis Redbirds game. This past Saturday they sang it at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau before the women's and men's basketball games for Southeast Missouri State University. We didn't have a huge number of the kids turn out but it was a pretty good group and they sang, well, you know, it's a tough song to sing:)
Here they are preparing to take the court.
They put a mike out for the kids to gather around. Pastor Dawn directed them. She's very musical and is a talented singer herself.
The kids were up on the jumbo tron.
Mallory got embarrassed when the singing got a little off key. You can see her in the back with her head down:)
I got Michael a Southeast tshirt to wear to the game. 2 bucks at Goodwill:) He also wanted me to paint his face. Such a sport.
The M's...Mallory, Maranda, Michael and Matthew
