It's that time of year. The grand-kids Christmas programs at their schools.
When Lizzie's time was over she came to sit with us and watch all the big kids. Her mother took this photo of us.
On Sunday Brady, the oldest grandson, had his winter band performance. He is in the white shirt and tie, playing his flute. It was the shortest of the three programs we attended. He did an awesome job. This is his second year of band.
Last night, we went to Blair Oaks for the 4th graders performance. This is their biggest grade. Alex is on the second row, in a blue and black shirt.
During the performance, the blacksmith leaned over and pointed out the woman in the pink and black shirt, on the front row. We could see she was Face-timing with someone dressed in military clothes. As the show came to a close Mrs. Martin, the music director, told us we had a special guest in attendance. It was Tyler Sandbothe's Dad, who is serving in Afghanistan. His wife was Face-timing the entire show.
It brought tears to my eyes and probably to just about everyone else in the auditorium.
So Mr. Sandbothe, if by some chance you see this, THANK YOU for serving our country. Godspeed to you. May you have a Merry Christmas, because I'm pretty sure there will be more Face-timing in your future.
As for the three Grands, they all did an awesome job.
Merry Christmas to all.
