Judging Spring Sing was harder than I thought it would be! We judged the Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday afternoon shows. I wish we could have stayed to watch the last show just for fun without having to focus so hard on our individual areas! Something about the worship minister needing to be back on Easter Sunday made us drive back after the afternoon show. :)
The show was really fun and filled with a lot of good talent. I think I had three relatives in the show this year: Logan in ensemble (LOVED the Ramalama number!), Tara in the puppets show (the most Jimminy Cricket I've ever seen), and Jake in the pirates show (the most realistic pirate out there with the beard and braids!). And Craig Jones was the vocal coach, and he's just nearly family! It was good to see all of them! Goodness, I'll get in trouble if I start trying to name EVERYONE we saw this weekend, because I'm sure I'd forget someone. So, it was really good to see EVERYONE!
We stayed in the Heritage since we could. Plus both Mom and Mother Martha had company staying at their houses, so I think it worked out best for everyone. Thanks to our moms for helping out with our kids during the shows and other activities we couldn't take one or both kids to!
We finally got our family picture taken since all of us siblings were together (at least for a few hours, anyway!). And I took a few of Johnathan hunting Easter eggs.
Easter morning was freezing here in Tyler. Literally, we woke up to 32 degree weather. It had even snowed here while we were in AR! The kids did wear their Easter outfits (different than outfits shown here) but we did not get pictures. I'll have to dress them up again and take some. They looked great!
