Melissa likes to sing

Originally uploaded by jbellis
Melissa "sings" the hymns at church with enthusiasm. She doesn't know the tunes or the words, but she follows along with the congregation as well as she can. Sometimes she makes up her own words.

Today for the "rest hymn" the congregation stood up. Melissa took a hymnal and stood up too, on top of the bench, and sang with gusto. When it was over, she said happily into the sudden quiet, "That was a good song! I did a good job!" Everyone laughed. Melissa does not have an indoor voice yet.

Miriam sings the same way for the hymns, making up her own words (and sometimes, tunes), but singing with definite volume. She likes to say "amen!" rather loudly when she's done singing. :)
