I had the most pleasant evening tonight. After trekking to Seattle once again today, to deliver more documents to the attorney, I made it home barely in time to shovel in my dinner and take my grandson to his soccer game. Today was his last game for this season and once again, he had so much fun. After the game his coach gave everyone on the team ribbons and trophies; the cutest little bobble-head soccer players, with the child's name on theirs. (Don't tell Josiah I said it was cute!) Josiah thought it was very cool. I have been so happy with his soccer coach this year. He's been so patient, and fair, always allowing the kids equal playing time, and letting everyone have a turn at playing goalkeeper, if they want. It's been a really fun experience having Josiah on his team.
After the game, I took Josiah to visit his Papi so that he could show him his trophy. Then we went to the park and listened to the concert. For anyone who doesn't know, every Thursday night there is a free concert down at the park by the post office in our town. You just take your lawn chain and stake out your territory, and it's free! Just bring a blanket with you because towards the end of the evening, it gets a little chilly!
Tonight the Voetburg family played. I listened to them a couple of years ago at our church and I just love going to their concerts. They have ten children, all of whom play musical instruments, and many of whom also sing. Their music is a combination of blue grass, gospel, even a little Frank Sinatra thrown in. They genuinely seem to like each other and their music is so fun to listen to. Josiah enjoyed himself and clapped along to the music, too. It was just an all-around great evening! Wish I would have had a camera so I could have taken some pictures to share. Unfortunately, the hubby is gone out of town for awhile and has the camera with him. So the picture below, one I found on their website, will have to suffice for now.
Psalm 100:1-5 (New International Version)
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
