It's dark outside now. It's 7PM. The kids down the street just finished up caroling on our front porch. Two girls and one boy. The girls were about 12 and 14, and the boy is 5. The little boy, Colin carried a lantern, and they sang several Christmas carols. They were great! They sounded great! And we felt great too. And they all three sang to. We asked where the older brother was. Mason is 9, and his little brother said. "he chickened out".
They all stood there on the porch, beside our lighted outside tree holding up sheets of music, just like in the old time pictures on Christmas cards, and sang their hearts out.......even little Colin, and he can't read.
If I hadn't had a lump in my throat. I'd have taken a photo.
