Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well. Today was another first for my husband and me. OUR DAUGHTER SANG IN HER FIRST SCHOOL SHOW! Teachers, faculty members, and volunteer parents did a fantastic job in making sure that everyone, who came to see the show, signed in with their identification cards. You could sense the anticipation and joy in the air. Once the lights were dimmed, it was show time. Two classes were brought into the auditorium, while the other classes waited out in the hallway. A student from each class was chosen to announce their respected classes and the song they were going to sing. As soon as the first class started singing, I immediately thought of the Sandy Hook tragedy and my eyes started welling up. I took a deep breath and composed myself. After the students finished singing, we clapped for them and they got escorted back out into the hallway as the next classes made their way in. Olivia’s class was last and they were singing the songs, “Mamacita, Donde esta Santa Claus?” and “All I Want for Christmas”. When her class finally came in, we waved like mad so she could see exactly where we were seated. As they positioned all the kids into their places, my daughter’s teacher guided her to the front and I was so surprised to see that she was going to be one of the announcers. I was so excited and nervous for my little girl, but she did a great job in announcing her class and the name of the song. I was so proud of her. We had a wonderful time hearing and seeing her perform. All of the kids did a great job and I made sure to clap extra hard for each class because I believe it made them smile more to hear how much we were enjoying their performance. We can’t wait for more moments like this and we’re definitely going to treasure it for the rest of our lives.
My beautiful star, Olivia, before going to school this morning.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
