This past Friday Grant participated in his first school program. The kindergarten classes presented "Gettin' Down with Mama Goose," a nursery rhyme re-mix. Grant was all business about it, of course, and wouldn't give us any specifics on his part in the program before the big debut. With Mommy, Daddy, Gramma, and all three brothers in the audience, our serious little performer waved to us from the stage. Wearing his "Old King Cole" crown and working hard on the choreography, Grant sang about Humpty-Dumpty, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Little Miss Muffet. He had fun performing and we all enjoyed watching our big kindergartner.
Friday was a momentous day for our family as later that evening we sold our house! After only 14 days on the market, we signed a contract and are scheduled to close April 23. Wow! It really has been amazing to see the Lord line up so many things as this process of moving unfolds. We praise him for bringing along a buyer so quickly. More to come as we pack up and move along to our "summer house" next month (a rental home in a nearby community--Brian is excited as it backs up to a golf course).
A funny highlight of the weekend was a comment Grant made on Saturday. Brian took the older two boys out to practice golf Saturday morning and while they were putting an elderly man joined them. So, it was just Brian, Grant, Bryce and this elderly gentleman around the putting green. Apparently this man was well up there in years and was sort of hobbling around. Grant looked at Brian and said (we're hoping this man was also hard at hearing), "Dad, that man has been playing golf for a really long time!"
