Our little talent show performers

Our Primary at church had a talent show and Lydia and Ethan were in it. Lydia (all decked out in Hannah Montana apparel) sang"Stars in the East," which she has been practicing in Music Class at school. The first recording didn't turn out very well though, at first it was zoomed in too much and didn't focus so it was blurry (I didn't add that one). So I stopped recording and started the recording again. She had hand motions and everything. Oh well, what can you do.

Then Ethan sang a song. It is his weather song at preschool. One day I heard him singing it... in the bathroom and I couldn't believe he actually knew all the words to a song. He told me he wanted to sing it for the talent show. Since then he has started singing other songs as well. It is always pretty cute. He didn't ever really have a strong interest in that department before.

Last but not the least, on a split decision just before the show, Lydia wanted to dance for everyone... so she did and it was uhh, interesting. A lot of jumping. She has always been quite the dancer... it wasn't quite showcased here though. She has wanted to dance in front of an audience for some time now. So I figured it was a good place to let her try it out. She thinks it was pretty silly too, but it is fun to watch. Amazingly, some grown-ups complimented me on her dancing. Mike and I just had to chuckle about it. We weren't sure how it would turn out. She had a lot of fun though. She said to me after, "I just kind of criss-cross jumped a lot and couldn't think of what to do. Maybe I should practice more next time, haha."

Ok, the dance was too long or something, because I've been trying to upload it all day. Maybe I'll add it later if I can
