Today was the first day of recording. We have a lovely place to record this year. We are at a Baptist Seminary that is way back in the woods so we don’t have as much outside noise to worry about.
After our eight o’clock breakfast of hot dogs, hard boiled eggs, vegetables, cheese, and bread, we headed over to the chapel for devotions and personal warm up. Recording always brings to light so many discrepancies in our music. So maybe the people that get to hear our last two programs will have the best ones.
Our lunch today was amazing! Chicken and rice…What more could you ask for, right? =) Then about mid-afternoon a bag of peanut butter m&m’s appeared, which we started pigging out on until we got bawled out for having food in the chapel. Oops!
We have about twenty-three songs to record with all the ones that we have to do in both English and Polish. We managed to do thirteen of them today, thankfully. We only had to go back after supper to do one song. Different people mentioned that this recording has been the most relaxed and fun recording they’ve ever helped with. We feel very blessed.
Speaking of supper, when you have sandwiches twice in one day, you also tend to have chocolate milk if given the chance. =) Ok, so really, I just ate cocoa puffs twice today, for breakfast AND supper. It was rather good except for the lukewarm chocolate milk at the end.
We finished recording for the day about 7:30 PM, which was glorious. We felt quite spoiled to have the evening free to do whatever we wanted. There were many games happening…V-ball, Catchphrase, Rook with lots of candy, Black 7, Ninja, ect. It was a wonderful way to relax for the evening.
