Sleeping on it.

Now on the cusp of middle school, Katie had a big decision to make: band or choir? She LOVES to sing, and she has really enjoyed performing with her elementary school choir. But band offers the chance to play an instrument, something she's always wanted to do.

A week or so ago, Katie attended the middle school choir's ice cream social and was all excited about signing up for choir. Then came Saturday's instrument fair, and the idea of playing saxophone or flute got her leaning toward band. What to do, what to do...

When I got home from the scrapbooking retreat Sunday, we continued her deliberations. She was really conflicted, and since it was getting late, I suggested we pray and sleep on it.

That's why, when it was time to tuck her in, I found THIS on her pillow:
What a funny girl!

By Monday morning she was still uncertain, but her classroom teacher had her chat with the school's music teacher for guidance. That conversation helped Katie realize that she'll have other opportunities to sing, but band will let her try instrumental music. So band it is! She'll find out sometime this spring if she can play sax, and if not, she'll play flute. Woo-hoo!

P.S. - ChaCha was in a quandary to see this little chair reappear in Katie's room. (It had been in storage for a few months.) Apparently she also chose to sleep on it!
