There was some visiting of friends!! One cool thing about going to a concert in a smallish town in western Kansas was that we knew lots of other people there too. .and kept bumping into ones that we knew. The boys found lots of friends from sports and various camps they have been to. . and watched from the door part of the time so they could catch up with old friends.
There was lots of standing up, dancing, hip swinging, clapping, and singin'! Many of the groups had their lyrics on the big screens so people could sing along!
Psalm 47:1 "Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with loud songs of joy."
Psalm 149:3 "Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre."
They don't use lighters anymore. .Now they use ipods and cell phones to wave in the air. This picture was taken as the Afters sang Light up the Sky. Awesome music!!
I had a blast trying out my new camera in the dark setting. Many other people were using their phones to catch pictures. Actually, Devin took the photo above, which I loved when I viewed it from my computer.
The kids had a great time. But my boys didn't care for the really heavy rock band. .or the loud aspect of the concert. Devin did really well until about 9:30. .and then he began to fade. .F.A.S.T!! Finally, by 10:20 he was BEGGING to leave. ."Please. .mom. .even if they AREN'T done. .can't we just go anyway!" Of course, the final band was Mercy Me. .my favorite. .and I made him suffer it out!
Besides. .he needed to get GOOD use out of this blinking mouth piece that he HAD to have. .good thing he brought his own wallet!! He couldn't wait to wear his new Mercy Me t-shirt to school today!
The rest of the weekend was so beautiful and warm!! We engaged in a lot of outdoor activities. .and Jeremy and I even went for a spin in his old model A. I found lots of signs of life coming up from the ground. .and the water was warm enough to feed the fish a bit on Saturday. They looked hungry. It's cooler again this week. .back to February!! But the seedlings coming up in my basement are fun reminders that spring will soon be here. Have a great week!
Psalm 81:1 "Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob."
