JVK Talent

The annual JV Kid Talent show is, perhaps, the best tradition about Thanksgiving. Started years ago, it gives our kids an opportunity once a year to share with all their JV "aunts and uncles" what they're good at.

What I love most about it is celebrating every one of our JVK and the gifts and talents they have, whether they're 3 or 18!

This year, for the first time, two of our JVK put together and hosted the show - Jacob and Noah.

They did such a great job of introducing, interacting, and celebrating each one of the kids!

These two cuties burly men showed off their wrestling skills by taking Jacob DOWN! 

This sweetie sang a delightful song in Czech and danced along with it...

One of our JVK put together a fun video of the first annual Turkey Trot earlier in the day...

 This young man completed 27 full-on push-ups to the count of the crowd! Impressive!

This brother-sister act sang a song in Czech - honestly, you would never know that they've only been in Czech school less than a year! Awesome job!

 This precious girl sweetly read a book out loud to us with her mom turning the pages!

This talented young man is behind the podium, busy at work sketching his subjects.

And then displaying an exact likeness of them! :) Wish you could see it better - it's a great drawing.

Gorgeous Slovak song from this princess!

An amazing drum solo from this talented fellow who's only been playing a short time!

An awesome mural from this brother/sister duo - brother created, sister helped display!

An original song on the recorder performed by this up and coming star!

After just a few month's of lessons, not one but THREE songs by this musical guy!

The young artist on the left is the creator of this architectural type drawing of Malenovice that he did LIVE for us!

I missed getting a photo of Kelsey playing the piano, but got one of her telling us what she'd be playing!

Claire was back for her third cooking show!

This time it was how to easily make a dairy free banana ice cream - that's soy milk going in the blender!

No shortage of taste testers when it was all done.

Ian surprised Noah by lip syncing one of his songs from Superstar a year and a half ago - gave us all a great laugh!

Gavin was truly amazing on the drums, playing to Coldplay's "Paradise".

Noah sang a beautiful song he finished composing the day of Tyler and Lara's wedding back in June, saying he was inspired by them. Yep, tears in the eyes of this mom on that one! :)

And this beauty finished the individual portion of the talent show by quoting not one, not two, not even three...but SEVEN verses from the Bible!!

The evening ended with a surprise by all the JV Girls...inviting their dads up to dance with them! So fun watching all those dads trying to find the moves, and their groove!

Yet another awesome year of talent from our JVK!
