Speaking of choir, Keturah has 10 lines to memorize! And her character is an artist! Her name is Caitlyn! Super excited for her! She has to be at all the rehearsals so they can use her during blocking out the scenes. That means she's going to be super tired come Monday morning co op, which we do have tomorrow. We had extra time off in January, but even then, we weren't planning on taking off tomorrow for President's Day anyway. We have one Monday off for Spring break, Other than that, we chug along as normal.
While the older 3 were doing their thing, Abishai did his thing running the halls of the church like he owned the place. Just like his big brother Benaiah did and still does. Abishai watched as the middle schoolers transitioned from small group time to worship time and at first he was giving them the "move along" arm swing that policemen do and then he started just waving and saying "hi" like they were part of a parade and he was on the sidelines. He also got excited when a few of them starting wrestling each other, laughing at them. Daddy chased him while I read and crosstitched and tried to listen to a podcast. Poor Justin is exhausted from staying overnight at Grandma's house last night, then being at church all morning, then playing video games this afternoon, and then more church stuff tonight. I hope he sleeps well and isn't really sick.
Benaiah has the day off tomorrow and so does his buddy Ethan so they are spending the night at Grandma's house and then heading off to church to do some stagehand work. Benaiah also worked for a church member on a jobsite for a little cash. My little boy is growing up! And then, he tells me he played 6 hours yesterday of his new video game he supposedly bought for his siblings. Not quite grown up all the way yet.
