Last night the kids experienced a first.
I initially came up with the idea as an outing for Reese’s Laurelettes group, but I expanded it to include Finn’s LightningHawks group as well. We had roughly ten kids and ten adults in total, which made for a nice-sized group. We went up and down 50th Avenue NE in Laurelhurst before singing our final song at the home of Tisha and Darren Patt. From there we hit the Laurelhurst Beach Club to watch the Christmas ships pass by.
I’ll remember the night as a great time out with family and friends. Finn will remember it as the night he did his first-ever solo. That’s right: Finn and a few of his buddies were so excited to get to the next house that I finally gave him an ultimatum: slow down or sing solo.
He didn’t, and he did. At the home of the Laurelhurst Fletchers.
Just a guess, but we may do it again next year.
