Elementary Talent Shows Rock!

So I have some catching up to do on the blog, but I figured I might as well start with the most recent event and work my way backward! Stay tuned for more posts!(Hopefully!)

 Friday afternoon I got to do something new and totally fun! One of my students was playing in her Elementary Talent show, and I happened to have that block of time free, so I went to watch her! I had never been in an Elementary school before! I was homeschooled, so obviously I didn't go to school in one. It was really interesting! And very brightly colored :)
 My student has a new baby sister, baby Angel. I was SO excited to get to meet her. She was a preemie and got out of the NICU recently, so I hadn't met her yet! You wouldn't guess she was a preemie by those CHEEKS. But she was born on late Dec, weighing under two pounds. Her due date was I believe a week or two ago! Crazy! She was the sweetest little thing and slept thru most of the talent show.
 So I really didn't know what to expect in terms of talent but I was pleasantly surprised! My favorite act, other than my student of course! Was the opening act with an entire kinder class dancing to a 50's song. they were dressed up in poodle skirts for the girls and t shirts and jeans for the boys and it was the cutest and funniest thing ever!!
 I wish i had gotten a video of it, but at the end they all exited the stage in pairs of three, and the boys would run and then slide on their knees! It was AWESOME!!!

 And lucky lucky me! Miss Angel got fussy right when her twin big brothers were getting done with the show, so that meant I got to save her from her car seat and hold her! She calmed down very fast after I did my patented Rock, Bounce, Pat. And I got in a leg workout :)
 The Star of the show!!!! Miss J did AMAZING! Not one wrong note in the entire song! I was SO SO PROUD OF HER!!!! I don't know how many kids were there but it felt like millions. They filled up all of the bleachers and sat on the ground. Scary for sure! But she played like a pro!!
 Love that silly girl!!

Is it weird that I was excited to get a visitors sticker? ha! It was so much fun!! Best reason ever to get up earlier than normal on a Friday!
