First Official Rafiki Talent Show

I think that one of the best events we’ve ever planned for the kids is a talent show.

Jessica and Hunter created a stage with a back curtain. Emily and I figured out a way to get the CD player outside at a hear-able distance from the stage. Jess and I made awards for all the kids. It was delightful.

We sat them down and I explained the concept of a talent show to the kids. Jessica then made a list of all the talents that they would be showing. We had quite a few dancers, but a few more creative submissions. Esther signed up to sign a song with her sister Brenda. They wore matching outfits. It was kind of amazing. Carol signed up to build a castle with blocks. Cocus played football (soccer) with Joel. Jerom signed up for cartwheels and Christmas. We weren’t really sure what that meant, so we played Christmas music while he did cartwheels on stage. It was all quite amazing. I haven’t laughed and cheered that loud in a long time. Our kids have some seriously impressived (and seriously unique) skills. Joel closed out the evening in prayer, thanking God for each of our talents, IMG_8214
