Back to the program... Jacob has major anxiety about not being perfect and noticed regularly that everyone else was doing the motions better than he was... and he was right (because he was standing there and not doing much at all). But we had a lot of talks about practice, and if you won't try because you have a bad attitude, you'll never get it right! They got to do it at two other churches and by the last night, he did every motion with every other kids and you'd never know he got a late start. I was so proud of him! He knew he did well too.
Our little German guy (Those are my lederhosen straps from when I was 2 and lived in Germany. He was going to wear my brother's shorts, but they were obscenely too small so we modified.)
Jacob and Hannah ready to go!

Jacob right on track!
One funny thing... During one of the shows he had one little girl hit him with her banner/flag by accident, then she realized it might be funny so she did it over and over again. I was soooo proud of Jacob that he didn't deck her! He did get upset and start talking to a boy about it at the beginning of the next song, but he recovered.
Anyway, all in all a good choir season for him. He ended up happy about it and getting over his issues... for now anyway.
