UPDATE ON HUMP DAY

UPDATE...On the way to school this morning Mackenzi said, "This is the day I have been waiting for since I started school at Thornton." That was six years ago. Each year she has watched as the 4th graders performed for the school and then for the parents at night. She has been patiently waiting until she was big enough to be part of this special event.She finally got her chance tonight when we went to the Fine Arts Showcase at the school.
It was all good except for the begininng where they suckered us into a PTA meeting. The meeting was originally planned for 530 but I guess when noone showed, they decided to do it when all of the parents arrived for the program. Don't get me wrong PTA meetings are fine to have, but when you have little ones, your time is limited. No one knows just how long they will sit still and quiet, if at all.The six 4th grade classes all participate. Three of the classes showcased their art projects and the other three did some sort of musical number. Mr. Cuda's class did a Russian dance, but my mind went blank and I can't remember what it was called and Mackenzi is off in dreamland so I can't ask her.It was fun to see all of the performances and to see Mackenzi, Taylor, & McKenzey do their dance along with a few giggles in between each step.

Is it me or did you find their dance a bit long? I had to laugh because they were so proud of it and acted like it took them so long to learn...but I did expect something more elaborate than skipping in circles.

Are the girls now dressing alike like you too do? :)
I am always blown away by how grown up they are. Crazy.

That's so funny that she said she's been waiting for this day ever since she started school. Wow, I hope it didn't disappoint her. It sounds and looks like smashing success.

Sure hope there is a video of the girls dancing. I can't wait to see it. They just look so darling and really so grown up. Kinda sad and kinda exciting. Love you all, Nana

I can't believe she said she'd been looking forward to it since she started school. That is just the cutest quotable!
