This Little Light of Mine

McIver's class, The Ladybug Class, sang "This Little Light of Mine" in chapel this morning. McIver has a love-hate relationship with school (although he loves his teachers!) so I wasn't sure how the morning would go. He did a great job - sang loud enough for me to hear, but not so loud that he was obnoxious.

The director of the school begins chapel with a prayer and then holds up a striped bag. ALL the kids scream, "What's in the bag?" and she calls on a few kids, then gives a few hints and calls on a few more. McIver told me this morning that he wanted to guess it today so we talked about the different things she might have in the bag. (Last chapel, she had a banana in the bag, so it really could be anything.) Anyway, she finally called on McIver and he guessed it - a tool box. But, what I didn't know is that he had peeked into the bag earlier this morning before school while she was talking to someone else. In fairness to McIver, he did admit to Mrs. Ellerbrock before chapel that he knew what was in the bag and she still chose to call on him. He was very pleased with himself!
