After finally finding where we were to be the kids performed in a little Talent Show. Elvis was the first one to perform. Poor boy. He was scared to death! It's not easy being the first one to go up.
I talked to him & then asked Boo to go up with him for support. Soon he was singing his first song.
The next song was another from church. He sings it with the Kids Praise Team all the time. The leader loved that it had dancing and motions.
Here's my boy singing & dancing for the Veterans.
Sweet Pea performed two of her patterns for everyone.
Red Belt! Watch out!
She ended with a big 'Hi-yah!'
Bugs acted out the part of Yankee Doodle while Boo sang the song.
He was so precious riding his horse!
Boo sang 'The Star Spangled Banner'.
All the residents that could stand did as did all the visitors & employees. I could tell that hearing her sing this song meant a lot.A few of the other kids played the piano for their talent. They did very well.
After the Talent Show the kids passed out cards they had made for the residents. One of the employees led us on a small tour of the facility where we had the opportunity to meet more residents.
This lady, Betty, enjoyed listening to Bugsy tell his story of how he is named after his great-grandfather. He told her all about him too.
Princess' favorite part was going and shaking hands with the Veterans.
She showed no hesitation or fear & was completely adorable.
She was precious. She walked right up on her own, stuck out her hand & then shook hands. Sometimes we paused for a bit so a hug could be given.
Boo & Bugs thanking one of the Veterans.
I was proud of all the kids. I hope we are able to go back again soon. It was an honor and a pleasure to be able to thank them for all they have done for us.
