Today is the annual Christmas concert, and while Lisa is at the show even as I type, I attended the afternoon rehearsal. Being me, I texted my review of the show as it went on!
1:39 PM: YaYa doing well
1:43 PM 3rd grade doing dance #, no vocals [not one of our classes]
1:49 PM 4th grade (LuLu's) kinda blah so far
1:51 PM 4th grade 2nd song muuuch better. . . Lu doesn't enjoy the stage like the rest of our kids I think ;)
Lisa's response: She waaaants to, her fear gets in the way of her being a star - but she wants to shine!
Me: Ok - MOM! LOL
1:58 PM Smiley singing proud
2:00 Singing at full joyous volume :)
2:07 PM Ginger on stage. Whatta smile!
2:10 PM - Oops! Ginger one beat ahead on her hand motions!
02:11 PM - [the school's traditional, infamous] Russian Dance!!
2:22 PM YaYa up on stage again
Anyhow, I know the pictures don't sync with the text, but I'm pretty darn exhausted. It was a pleasure to watch and later I posted this on Facebook:
I spent the afternoon at the rehearsal for tonight's school Christmas concert. Yes, these buggers annoy me often, but when I catch myself grinning ear to ear at one of these things, or getting a big hug from all of 'em afterwards, I know the truth: if nothing else, I was born to be a Daddy.
Merry Christmas from the kids of Team Slap!
