We saw several of our old favorite birds, including this heron - out in spite of the cool temperatures!
We arrived in time to make a few rehearsals and help out with an annual Christmas production presented by the local home school group.
Lots of hard work goes in to this production and we especially appreciate the directors, Mrs. Hallock and Mrs. Seaman that dedicate untold hours from summer, fall and into winter preparing the productions. The selected plays are always consistent in their focus that Christmas is centered on the birth of the Messiah. The children, from toddlers to teens, are all encouraged to view their role as messengers, rather than performers and they always provide a tremendous delivery!
Our kids were able to participate by being a shepherd for the nativity scene and a smart aleck New Yorker (due for a huge awakening).
The intermission provided a unique rendition of the 'Twelve Days of Christmas' with customized lyrics for home school families - if we can get our hands on the lyrics, we'll share later - very cute!
All in all, a very fun and pleasant evening blessed by the many friendly and familiar faces! We enjoyed touching base with several friends while in the area, including Sean - who was missed most of all by Ginger!
