My Little Shepherd

A week or two ago, we went to see Grandson R, who played one of the shepherds in his Kindy's Nativity Play.

It was a very informal event, with parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters all invited.

First, we visited his class.  The taking of attendance is quite different these days, and I had to laugh at the children's attempts to write their names.
Here's a shot of the entire cast of the Nativity Play.
I was very amused by R's different facial expressions throughout the performance, and managed to get quite a few pictures from where I was sitting.  He really looked like he was enjoying himself.
Big Sister A was excused from her Year 3 class so that she could watch her little brother perform.

She was very good and took care of littlest brother B throughout the performance.  Below, she can be seen sitting on the floor with B in her lap.
After the Nativity Play ended, there was a graduation ceremony.  Next year, R will go on to pre-school.
And finally it was time for refreshments.  Little B studied the table carefully.
And then went in to help himself.  This little fellow certainly loves his food.
The header to my blog shows R in his shepherd's costume, set against a photo of Bethlehem at sunrise, a photo taken from our hotel window a few years ago.

Here's wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
