I will probably never hear the end of it about forcing "the hubs" to go to a New Year's eve concert. We got a group of adults together and several youth to go the the (M)Pact concert in Nashville. The first 4 hours were awesome. The last hour, we decided, was just not for us.
These kids were the main reason we went...other than the $20 ticket price!
Let me tell you about how we have come full circle! Original post 3 years ago we went to a little known concert one weekend. It was full of fun and games and a free hot dog/burger dinner. After dinner there was a message and then a band played. They were good...really good. So good in fact that my youngest (at age 9) wanted their autograph. It might have been the start of our spiritual journey, only we didn't know it. That band? Sidewalk Prophets.
And they were just as good 3 years later...and yes, he asked for their autograph again. Some day little man, some day!
This guy was awesome. I'm not sure of his name, but he was an illusionist...a fancy name for "magician". Ha. But he was awesome. I'm sure if I researched it, I would find out how he did this, but it would kill the whole trick. I'd rather just wonder!
Matthew West. Enough said. Awesome, amazing, priceless. We are all still singing "I am a Child of the One True King!" His testimony brought tears. Worth.every.penny.
I tried to zoom in on Maison, but it's very
pixelated. If you make out the girl on the very
end with a black shirt on, he's 3 down from her and
you can make out his full upper body, unlike the
other 2 boys which you can't really see. I hate
that I've got to get there an hour early to get
good seats, but when you try to cram 7 grades of
parents into a band concert, you do whatcha gotta
do! Hard to believe these are 7th/8th graders! I
don't remember playing pieces this difficult at
that age! (This is the only one I've uploaded
so far, out of the 4 songs they played) :)
