Tanner has been a sign-language-learning-fool this summer!
Tanner attended the Children and Youth Program's Day Camp this summer and for about 5 weeks the children have been learning the words and sign language to the song "The World's Greatest" by R. Kelly. About 45 kids performed the song at the End of Summer Celebration yesterday afternoon for their parents and peers. I'm a VERY proud Mommy, he worked very hard to learn the signs and you could see his seriousness as he sang the and signed the words. It was so important to Tanner that he had us look up a website that had hearing impaired children signing the song so he would get it "just right" - now THAT'S dedication! Hope you enjoy the show as much as we did!
*** My video disclaimer*** I filmed the video with my regular digital camera while holding Gavin, sorry if it's a little shaky ;)
Tanner attended VBS (Vacation Bible School) last week and had an amazing experience. It still makes me weepy when I think about how lucky we are as Christians to be free to publicly worship in a Muslim country. Yet one more reason we are blessed to be stationed here in Bahrain. Earlier in the day Tanner and his friends from Vacation Bible School performed two songs with accompanying sign language at the conclusion of Friday's church service. They were adorable, wearing the flag T-shirts they hand painted and singing their little hearts out! Tanner's at the right side of the stage in front with Maggie Childers on his left.
