my singing boys

Last week for stake conference, as some of you know, the Primary kids provided the music. While planning this Rachel suggested that Samuel sing one of the solo lines in "I Feel My Savior's Love." At first I thought she was crazy (sorry Rache, but I did) and then I figured heck, why not, might as well start him early and at least he isn't shy. Anyone who has seen Samuel give a talk in Primary knows that!
Anyway, Samuel agreed to sing as long as his friend Alyssa (her name is always said in reverent tones at our house-Samuel adores her!) would sing with him. Alyssa agreed, much to her mom's surprise, and I began teaching the song to Samuel. As with everything else, James started learning right along with his big brother.
To make a long story short Samuel sang and did a great job and was thrilled by the whole experience. Phew! However, there was an unforseen benefit that resulted from this opportunity. Samuel and James now have a verse of "I Feel My Savior's Love" committed to memory and periodically, spontaneously burst into song. I can't tell you how stinkin' cute it is to hear my boys sing this song together in their little voices. I love it! It makes my heart happy.

I love the bonds created thru music! My girls sing together, so joyfully, and it makes me feel like they will always be good friends!
