Yesterday we braved the traffic and made our way up to Northern Virginia for a Hymn Sing that everyone had been preparing for during the past month. Our family was looking forward to this opportunity of meeting some new families and enjoying fellowship with some like-minded Christians.
We were not disappointed! The evening was wonderful!
The presentations by each family were coordinated and well rehearsed, and we enjoyed seeing all the children sing their parts:
Here's one young men's on-the-spot group that Jonathan joined:
All in all, we had a very good evening talking and getting to know new families after the singing. After an exchange of emails and blog addresses, we headed back down the interstate towards home...arriving at 2:00 a.m. and quite ready to get some sleep!
We're thinking that we enjoyed this time so much that maybe we'll have our own Hymn Sing sometime. Want to come play and sing with us?
