Oh Say Can You See - Part Deux

Our Children's pastor, Dawn Walters, does such a wonderful job with our kids. She teaches them the things of the Lord and mixes in a lot of fun outings and events with them. 

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

It was a very enjoyable day. The girls' team won but the men lost. The band, dance cam, indoor blimp that dropped prizes and all the other gimmicky things made the game quite entertaining. So many of our EP friends attended SEMO, as it's more commonly known, so it was nice to visit the campus and cheer on the RedHawks!
