Family Night with Sanctus Real and Casting Crowns

Family Night with Sanctus Real and Casting Crowns!

Our kids have grown up singing and dancing.  Music is a favorite thing in this house!  I remember my first concert was Michael W Smith and Amy Grant.  That was when Amy Grant was being discovered!  My hubby surprised me many many months ago with tickets to the Sanctus Real and Casting Crowns concert.  He had bought 5 tickets with the thought that this would be a great first concert for our girls!  How Great is Our God has been a favorite song in this house since the girls learned how to talk!  

Big Sis is headed off to school but is SUPER EXCITED 
about family night as soon as she gets home!!!
 Middle Sis said she was going to color this all day because she was so excited!
Knowing that the first concert is the most memorable one for life we wanted to make sure they saw Sanctus Real :) I know most people would say that 7, 4, and 3 years old may be a bit young but we knew we would have a blast! Our 3 year old is excited to see "the guy in Mommy and Daddy's wedding photo album", our 4 year old can't wait to see "Sanctus Reals Talent Show" and our 7 year old can't wait to dress up and dance and sing their songs in real life! I on the other hand am excited to see my friend on stage who, after worship practice, once told me that his dream was to be a drummer in a band!
 Here is Lil Sis doing some backpack activities while we wait for the concert to start!
 Woohoo!  Sanctus Real!!!
 It was so great to see the girls dancing and singing along with the bands!
 There is Matt! We have been praying for Matt's little boy Bowen and his family since before he was born.  The girls pray for him at meal times and bed time.  We know that prayers by the faith of a child can do amazing things. We wanted to go to his birthday party a few weeks ago but were not able to make it. The girls were disappointed. Two nights ago Little Sis prayed for Baby Bowen's heart to be "strong and healthy and that he wouldn't get any broken legs"!  This amazing lil boy has a great family, grandparents, Aunt and Uncle, and cousins. We know that Little Bowen doesn't weigh just on Momma and Daddy's hearts but the whole family.  We love the Hammitt family and our prayers are with Sarah's family too! The girls were so excited to see Bowen's video on the screen during the concert.  Please click here to check out the link and keep him and his family in your prayers.
Big Sis having fun!
Middle Sis...loving every minute of it!

Lil Sis danced so hard that she fell asleep for the last 2 songs.  
Understandable since the concert lasted from 7:00 p.m - 10:43 p.m.!
The people behind us said their favorite part of the concert was watching her dance!
Here we are catching up for a quick minute during the intermission.
I cannot believe that the girls are so old!
What a great night!  My hubby and I felt like we went with grown up friends since 
the girls were so great and had such a fun time!
One more song!
Family pic at the end of the show! (Someday Lil Brother can come too!)
We got to spend a few more minutes catching up with Mark at the end of the show!  It's been a few years  (15 years...man i'm old!) since our worship team practices!
