4th Grade Chapel Program

Each year, Carly participates in a chapel program. In previous years, each class was responsible for a program, but this year, the whole 4th grade came together to put on a program. Before it was also held in the chapel but this year it was in the sanctuary of the church. That was a big deal to the kids. They go to the chapel every week but the sanctuary made it seem even more of a production!

Carly's Bible and music teachers wrote, directed, organized it all. The program was about the life of Paul. There were drama scenes, music, and singing. The kids got to request what they would like to do. Carly wanted to be an instrumentalist. "I do not want to talk" is what she told me when I asked her what she wrote down on her form.

They did a fabulous job. It was wonderful to see some talents that I had not had the chance to see before.

One day, I am going to figure out how to take photos in a stage situation where I am not close enough for a flash and there is not much stage lightening. If I slow the shutter down to get enough light then they are blurry!

I love seeing the pictures of the kids giving their program, Kim Sue. I'm so glad you have so many good things in your life.

What a great program!
hooray you could take photos, even without a flash- they turned out good.

I think you need to increase the ISO as high as your camera will go, but indoor lighting is always a challenge unless you have a really expensive camera. (My sister in law's camera has a 3200 ISO, but my highest is 1600).

I so love Chapel programs. I agree with you on the pic situation. I haven't been able to figure it out either.

Oh, I get it Jill, I need a new camera! I have frequently admired your SIL pictures especially the ones she takes inside without a flash. Now I understand...I need a MUCH higher ISO.
