This past weekend we went back to our Alma Mater for Spring Sing! It’s a big performance that Harding’s social clubs put on every year the weekend of Easter. The clubs (like frats/sororities) compete with each other and whoever wins, gets to pass on a check to a charity of their choice. 🙂 Here’s a 30 second clip of the finale from last year:
Technically you’re not allowed to film Spring Sing so there aren’t lots of great videos available, but! There are several good ones of the flash mob that they did last year just before Spring Sing:
Oh yeah, I love my Alma Mater. [Side note: in that last video, the fountain you see there is the same one I was baptized in as seen in my Easter post :)]
So, I know what you’re wondering. Was I ever a part of this wonderful theatrical experience known as Spring Sing? You betcha! I performed both my freshman and sophomore years and loved every second of it!
And us on stage performing! Sadly there isn’t a shot of me from the front, but that swooshy ponytail is super recognizable. I’m #5 in the green on the left. 🙂 And Christopher is #3 on my right! [This photo belongs to Harding University]
So every year since we graduated, Christopher and I have gone back to Harding to watch Spring Sing and enjoy the festivities! It’s so wonderful. Hard to believe that I’ve been graduated nearly three years now, but still so fun to see it all again! 🙂
United we stand, divided we fall and if our backs should ever be against the wall, we’ll be together! Together you and I… 🙂
Me and my father-in-law, Tony. He is such a good man and I’m so grateful for the relationship he has with my husband. Christopher is such a great mentor to teen boys because he has such a great dad. 🙂
The weekend was great! I got to see so many of my favorite teens from when I worked at Camp Wyldewood and was an intern at Downtown. Each girl that saw me, SHOUTED my name (usually my maiden name, haha!) and came running full force toward me to wrap me up in a hug. I love it. Seriously. I am SO grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to work with teen girls over the years. Each of them is so precious to me. I wish I’d gotten pictures of me with the girls, but I didn’t have my camera on me. The rest of the weekend was spent with family and that’s wonderful. Christopher and his dad golfed with Marty and I thrift store shopped one afternoon. All in all – a great weekend. 🙂
Anyone else ever perform in something like Spring Sing?
Who all has adopted doggies?
