For anyone who is not usually around small children between 4pm and 6pm, or for other parents of littles who hope they're not alone in the crazy hour of the day, here is a little glimpse into the amount of energy that an average kid has at his disposal.
Please note that the kids danced like this and sang loudly for nearly 15 minutes without a break. They made me tired just watching them! (And no, that's not just something aging adults say...it's actually true!)
Also note, the kiddos sang another Chris Tomlin song with just as much exuberance as their dancing suggests while walking the aisles of Sam's Club. No, they didn't care that heads were turning. I'm not sure what was more surprising to onlookers - the sheer volume of three kids belting out their favorite song or the fact that their favorite song's lyrics go like this "Lay me down I'm not my own, I belong to You alone. Lay me down. Lay me down. Oh-oh-oh. Hand on my heart this is much is true, there's no life apart from You. Lay me down. Lay me down." (Obviously credit goes to Chris Tomlin and his crew for the lyrics...we had nothing to do with those).
How do your kids like to channel their excess energy?
