5 Minutes for Special Needs - Special Exposure Wednesday

We Colin!

Yesterday the kids and I went to the Colin Buchanan concert and had a great time. Colin has a great range of Christian music for kids and always puts on a great concert (and cheap - only $7 or $8 for tickets). He always stays around and meets all the kids and signs autographs.

Here are the girls with Colin...

Please excuse the quality of the pic - one of the helpers at the concert took it.

Anyway after we met him I asked if he would do us a little favour and sing Ashlea's favourite song with her - a song based on the bible verse Isaiah 53:6. Ashlea can't sing the words, but she can sing the chorus which goes 'baa baa do baa baa'. He sang the words and Ashlea obliged with the 'baa baas'. She didn't get through the whole song but Colin was very sweet with her. I think he could see what an achievement it was for her - it is always lovely when someone takes the time to really 'see' your child.

Now if I ask Ashlea if she met Colin yesterday she says proudly 'I sing the baas baas'.

Don't forget to check out all the other great photos in Special Exposure Wednesday.

I have never heard of Colin. Definitely need to check out his music. He sounds like a very sweet man. How wonderful that Ashlea was able to sing with him - what a proud moment it must have been!
