The Butterfly Song

This morning I was sad that I hadn't made Nicholas' lunch extra special since it was the last time I was going to make his lunch for him in preschool. I had forgotten that the parents were invited to school at 11:00 for a special end of the year chapel service. So Rachel and I made him a special little love note and a goodie bag of gummy worms and secretly stuck it in his lunch box at school before his class had lunch time. Yea Mom!

The chapel service was nice. I finally got a good position to get some video of Nicholas. It's about time. Over the last 3 years at Montessori, every single time there is a special chapel service, I get their early to get a good viewing spot but his class ends up sitting on the other side of the chapel or someone is blocking my view of Nicholas or whatever. But this last service, I was finally able to capture him singing...and not only that but I caught him singing my favorite song - The Butterfly Song. I just love this song! It's so cute! I've included the words too because I know it can be hard to understand on the video at times.

The Butterfly Song
If I were a butterfly, I'd thank you Lord for giving me wings
If I were a robin in a tree, I'd thank you Lord that I could sing
If I were a fish in the sea, I'd wiggle my tail and I'd giggle with glee
But I just thank you father for making me, me

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me

If I were an elephant, I'd thank you Lord by raising my trunk
If I were a kangaroo, You know I'd hop right up to you
If I were an octopus, I'd thank you Lord for my fine looks
But I just thank you Father for making me, me

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me

If I were a wiggly worm, I'd thank you Lord that I could squirm
If I were a fuzzy wuzzy bear, I'd thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair
If I were a crocodile, I'd thank you Lord for my great smile
But I just thank you Father for making me, me

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me




The next song is another favorite at his school - Deep in the Heart of Texas. They always sing it at the end of the year chapel. Nicholas loves this song and often sings it around the house.
