Have you heard that song? Chris Richardson (no relation to us...well, at least I don't think so) sang it on American Idol. It is our new FAVORITE song (courtesy of Jason Mraz on iTunes who did it originally but we think Chris' version is better). I can't get it out of my head (and neither can the rest of my family).
We're really into American Idol in our house. Thank goodness for Tivo! We've been gone every night this week but have been able to catch all of our favorites. Will's favorites are all the ones that have gotten kicked off.
Recently, I "tried out" for the worship team at our church. That required me to spend a lot of time singing in the car to re-oil, if you will, this rusty voice. Jake asked me why I was singing those songs and I told him I was "trying out" for the worship team. He then asked, "You are trying out for American Idol? You are going to Hollywood, mom!" Will immediately panicked, "Who will take care of us if you go to American Idol?" I then explained that I was too old to be on American Idol. They were relieved.
So, we continued to practice the praise songs in the car. By the end of the 2 weeks, the boys were correcting ME when I sang the wrong words. They knew all the words to the songs and would sing them all day long. It was precious! There is nothing better than hearing your babies sing praises to God!
