Live From TV

One of Micah's favorite artists has a CD/DVD combo, and he's plumb wore out 3 DVDs with the constant watching. And memorizing. And idol worship. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw that this singer was doing a concert just 40 minutes away. We secured tickets and waiting in anticipation. One of two things would happen.

1. Micah would absolutely love it. I mean, it's his favorite singer, live on stage.

2. Micah would hate it. There are times that he just decides he wants nothing to do with what we think he should, and he sulks and makes life miserable for everyone around him for the duration of the event.

Micah endured the introductory singer, and listened as patiently as he could while the other band played. His boredom was evident when he asked to go to the bathroom 4 times in the first hour. But then the band played a song that he recognized from the radio, and the amazement on his face was wonderful to behold.

That was before Mark Schultz came out on stage. When *he* came out, Micah was thrilled nigh unto death. He sang songs just like on the DVD, only it was live and real right in front of him. Micah got Mark's signature on a CD case. The boy carried that CD to church with him instead of a Bible, and was caught kissing it on a few occasions.

Last year at the holidays, Micah realized that his friends in his Disney movies are real while visiting Disney World. This year at the holidays he realized that Mark Schultz is real, and not just someone on his TV for entertainment purposes. Who knows? Next year he might get to meet the Veggie Tales.

Flea - for better or worse, I've been letting Micah play with my Canon more and more often. Someday I may regret that, but he loves taking pictures.
