This morning we woke the kids up at 7 to go to early church. I was directing the New Sound 6th grade choir group at the 8:45 service and my rehearsals start up this afternoon. So, to have more time for lunch and the afternoon, we decided to not do the 11:00 service as well.
On the way there, we were listening to the Symphony channel on our new Sirius radio. Fun for us that Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 was on. For those of you familiar with the Little Einsteins, this is the "Birthday Machine Song." Cavett loves to listen to it and Kendrick got in to it as well by "conducting." After they dropped me off at church early, the boys proceeded to Whataburger for breakfast.
Cavett sat with Dad in church with nothing to keep him entertained. The children's sermon came up very quickly and seeing as how I was up in the alter area, I had a perfect view. He left Dad's pew in the very back and walked all the way down the aisle by himself. He climbed the stairs and sat as close as he could to the woman doing the lesson. After it was over, he informed her that he had a "Hot Wheels jumper!" She acknowledged him, but the funny part was watching him go back down the aisle. He hopped like a bunny the entire way back. I always get comments about him. His Sunday School Teacher also said that he was "very involved" in their discussion today. Sometimes I just don't know what to do--laugh, be embarrassed, or think maybe he just walks to the beat of a different drummer compared to other kids. He is precious and he isn't really being a trouble maker, but he definitely makes his presence known.
He did have his first communion this morning. He walked down with Dad and the servers bent over for him. He dipped the wafer in the juice. Dad explained to him that it was a meal with Jesus. Afterwards, they prayed. It was so cool to watch how Stephen was enveloping him. One of Candace's friends has a name for it--a prayer tunnel. I definitely had the best seat in the house to watch this awesome experience.
