Last week I brought both kids to Messiah practice, but we only stayed until the break because Matthew was restless and I thought best not to push my luck. After all, at that point people still thought I had well-behaved children! Matthew "sang" along to quite a number of the choruses.
Elizabeth was keen to come back, so Matthew went fish light shopping with Daddy while we sang. Elizabeth's favourite part is still the warm up, but she also greatly enjoyed the "Sheep song" and "Hosanna" (aka All we like sheep and Halleluia) which she was sure to sing loudly in my ear. (The lady next to me was a first time participant and not too sure of her notes, so she asked people repeatedly to sing loudly in her ear. Hopefully she couldn't hear Elizabeth's version, which had a few misplaced sheep since she doesn't quite know the whole thing yet...)

The sheep song, eh?! So glad you are introducing them to great music.
