K's Third Grade Play: "Whether the Weather"

Last night was K's third grade play entitled "Whether the Weather." It was a very cute little musical about meterology and all types of weather. K had the lead.

I was shocked when her teacher said that she had the lead as I didn't even know that she'd tried out. In Kindergarten she was too scared to try out. In first grade she tried out, but didn't get a part and she was sooooooooooooo nervous. In second grade they didn't really hold try outs, the teachers nominated a few kids and they then tried out just to see which part they'd get, although they were guaranteed a part of some kind. Her music teacher said she was shocked when K tried out as she is usually so shy and quiet, but that she did such a great job that she had to give her the lead.

K was so excited that she memorized all her lines the first day! She did a great job last night. She didn't forget a single line. She was a little less animated than in practice, but that was just the nerves part. We were so proud of her. We took her to Sonic and let her choose whatever she wanted and the rest of us didn't get anything. She thought that was very special. We might have to make it a tradition! C was a little jealous at first, but quickly calmed down when he realized that it was important to celebrate with K.

Here are a few pictures, but in the cafeteria is one place that NEVER turns out good on any of my digital cameras. One is really blurry, but...it is all I have (except for video, but that's not digital).

How fun! I wish they did plays at Bryson. Oh well.

You'll have to ask for photoshop for Christmas so you can have pretty pictures all the time. LOL. ;o)

Way to go!!

All my pictures I take in our cafeteria turn out horrible. I don't know what the deal is, but it drives me crazy.

K is soo cute & talented, even if the pictures turned out a little funky. I wish we could have been there! E lately is putting on her backpack and telling me she needs to go on the bus to school with K & C! How she loves her cousins... Thanks again for doing the Christmas gift assigning :)

How fun for K! What an accomplishment to stand up in front of all those people and not forget a single line! I'll bet you are so proud of her! :)
