ResponsiBoy is at his Kindergarten Camp Out where FPD is chaperoning. He just called me to hold the phone out so that I could hear 64 little voices singing about Princess Pat and her “rig of bamboo”. Apparently, this is a popular sing-a-long number. I must be deprived, because I had never heard it until I got to the other side of the world, where Brant taught it to the kids at the orphanage. I showed the video to my kids about 50 times when I got home, I have watched it secretly about 50 more. In Ghana, it was sung by children who live their lives like a camp out, cooking over an open fire, staying in a “cabin” with no electricity, wearing dirty clothes. Here in America my child sings it for one night, for entertainment, during a camp out where this is considered to be SO FUN because it’s so different than his daily existence. I thank God that those 64 voices will never have to know what these 60 some voices go through on a daily basis.

Did you watch it? Now watch it again and look and listen for the following:
–Brant (who is leading) has the hiccups.
–Look closely for William, it was his first day back to school in a LONG time. He was VERY happy.
–Notice the “Round of Applause” at the end? Tee hee.
