Little George sat up on the stand with his arms folded the whole time. He looked a little uncomfortable, but he wouldn't unfold his arms. I asked Abe if he had told George to fold his arms and he proudly said he had. I reminded Abe that we have to be careful in what we tell George to do. He's a little like Ella Enchanted, in that he is extremely obedient. He probably didn't need to fold his arms the whole time.
We treated ourselves to pumpkin pie and vanilla ice cream. That is the way to kick off fall!
Now, Cannon on the other hand, was told in no uncertain terms, that he had better not be too silly up on the stand. No making faces at Clark or other friends of the older kids out in the congregation. Cannon does so love to perform. Here are a couple videos of him lately.
This first one is his audition piece for the part of Michael Banks for the local high school's production of Mary Poppins. He didn't get the part, partly because he was younger than what they were looking for, but we had a grand time preparing, and auditioning is always a good experience. I particularly enjoy his British accent.
This next one I can't really say I'm proud of, but he does keep us laughing and I enjoy him immensely. I am proud that he is accompanying himself on the piano.
We recently had a lovely evening with friends, entertaining each other with "traumatic pet stories". Everyone had some sort of story to share. I told the story of the death of my brother's school pet, Stinky the rat. Jeff told about Jo Jo the guinea pig's unfortunate demise. Clark told of losing Tito the tortoise at the park when he was 4. Abe told about the mysterious disappearance of The Black Cat. Did she just wander off or was she translated? It was pretty funny.
