Back in March, Leah sang her first solo in big church and did a great job. Here she is with the praise band, leading the congregation in a new song. I thought I had posted this back then, but I apparently just put it on Twitter.
Leah and Molly both sang with their choirs again in March. This time, Leah got the earlier service while Molly was in the later one.
Both the girls’ choirs sang on the same day in February (Molly at the 9:30 service, Leah at the 11:00 service).
Our church once again took part in the day of service on MLK day. There were lots of service activities, but the girls were most excited to sew pillowcases for kids in the hospital. So, we headed there first so the girls could use their skills.
We also made braided jump ropes. They took unwanted T-shirts and cut them up into strips, which we braided together and attached handles to.
We did some other things as well, but I apparently only got pictures of the crafty projects.
This Christmas Eve, both our girls were involved in both of the family Christmas Eve services at church. First, the choirs of both girls joined forces to sing in a couple of the Christmas Eve services at church.
The main content of the service was a very fun skit which Molly took part in. The video below is the entire skit. Molly first appears at 1:20 for a non-speaking scene. She then appears at 7:00 for the scene with her speaking role.
Leah read about the Advent Wreath and led the congregation in prayer. I love that she looks up to check that her microphone is on before she begins speaking.
In December, both the girls sang with their choirs in church.
Great singing, girls.
The girls’ choirs sang in worship back-to-back weeks in October. Molly was up first.
The next week, it was Leah’s turn.
Great singing, girls!
During Family Worship Month (August) at church, kids took part in the service. Molly got picked to be worship leader, and she did a great job!
This year’s Vacation Bible School theme was Cave Quest. As always, Molly and Leah had a great time. Leah was upstairs with the big kids for the first time this year. Jen taught a preschool class downstairs again, marking the first time in years that she hasn’t had one of her own kids in class with her.
On Sunday, Molly, Leah, and Jen sang a couple of their VBS songs in church. Molly and Leah were easy to see, and you can occasionally see Jen’s head appear on the left side as other heads move out of the way. I love how much the girls got into it.
