Little Brother and 3 friends are sitting here, deep in negotiations about what to play. While they work out how to pair off for “teams” in a game, one of the kids is paging through a church hymnal left on the table after choir practice the other day.
“How about we play on teams for one round and all together for another round,” one friend suggests.
Meanwhile, another child is announcing the next hymn–and they all drop the discussion of teams and open up a music book and start singing “Go Tell It On The Mountain.”
Their great enthusiasm makes up for their lack of perfect pitch (not to mention tempo.)
Sing on, kids!
