I don't know where the last month has gone, but it's went fast! We are nearing the end of school and with that comes school programs. The 5th graders had their Spring program Tuesday night and it was so awesome. Their songs and choreography was outstanding! I loved the variety and I loved the songs. :) So fun! Most of all I was bursting with pride for the obstacles my oldest daughter has overcome.
Ever since beginning school Isabella has been slowly overcoming her fear of public speaking (even if that speaking is one on one~), fear of being in front of people and overall general breaking out of her shell. Each year she matures into this lady that is just a shadow of the little girl she once was. That night we had no idea she had this speaking part. There were 100's of people in that auditorium that night. And she did it! She spoke clearly, and remembered her lines. All on her own. In retrospect kinda glad I didn't know she was memorizing a speaking part~I might have hovered/reminded her to slow down be calm, yadda yadda yadda... a tad bit. Not that I ever do that....Just hypothetically speaking. I had tears of complete pride for her....so very happy for her to overcome this in her life.
Can you see her proud little mystery grin here? Just before she spoke? :) Love it! The program also included fun songs by Black Eyed Peas, Bruno Mars, and O-zone. The O-zone song was choreographed by their music teacher with some 150 students wearing all black clothes with white gloves, and black lighting. Their hand motions glowed!! It was so tricky & fun!!
So amazing to watch these people grow. I love this stage of them, I'm pleasantly surprised how much I love this stage...since I kept having babies because I LOVED the newborn stage SO MUCH. This new season is just as cool.
Celebrating her job well done...with s'mores on the patio.
