this little light of mine

Last night Anna's school put on a music show!

It was a pretty big production -- the show was held at the auditorium of a local high school. All the kids were up on stage during the entire show, but each class went up to the center one at a time to perform. Being the oldest - the kindergartners - Anna and her classmates went last...which meant I had to watch about a hundred other kids sing first. With an antsy Will wiggling around me, I was definitely getting restless myself too. But when it was time for the kindergartners, my ears perked up and my eyes shined as I watch my little girl perform with such zest. My most favorite part was her smile.

Instead of just one song, her class performed three, so I guess the wait was worth it. Anna also got to present flowers to the teachers too.

Here is one of the videos I took:

Too bad Luke was on travel, but at least the grandparents made it so Anna still got a little cheering section going on. Thanks to them for the beautiful dress too.

    1. At least one of my parents always came to mine (I was in the band) too since they had to drive me. Lots of school performances in our future!

  5. Because I'm challenged when it comes to juggling a personal and work calendar, I was out on a business trip the nite this happened. But dammit to hell, this will be the first and last time I ever miss one of these things. Not just for the kids, but for my own soul. Little moments like these should not be missed...and I'm still shocked when see how much this little girl has grown.

  6. aww.. that is so precious.
    we had a moment last year when D was performing for the first time.. it as very small.. just in his class for a handful of parents.. but it was my baby's first. But my husband was running late and needed me to pick him up from the bus stop and it all went so wrong.. we missed his performance by minutes.. he sang and there was no one there for him. it still makes me cry a little.. he was too little to remember but I still haven't.
