I loved choir in junior high. My required solos were not the most memorable. "You Light Up My Life" and "Superstar" by the Carpenters were just a couple that haunt me. Even then, I was still surprised that not one of my girls ever gave choir a try. I tried to convince them that it was fun! That they would meet lots of great kids, and that it was an easy "A". They just wouldn't do it.
So, how surprised do you think I was, when in the middle of his 6th grade year, Clark announced that he was going to take choir at Poston. I was so excited! I tried not to make a big deal of it, but inside I was hoping that his desire wouldn't fade.
Tonight my dream as a mother came true! Clark performed in his first choir concert! He looked soooo cute in his bow tie and suspenders. And although he didn't crack a smile on stage, I could tell he was loving it, too! It made for a perfect FHE activity and to honor the new choir boy, a trip to Golden Spoon was in order!
Thanks, Clark....You light up my life!
