The last week or so of school is crazy! I feel as though I might as well just rent a room in the school and move in!
Last year was hard because Braden was littler and impatient with program after program. This year was a little better. Maybe we were just better prepared for it.
Emma had her play: The Wizard of Oz. Oh, how she loved doing this play! She loved each and every minute of it! It got to the point where I told her she could not talk about it anymore at breakfast because it was ALL she wanted to talk about, all day long. And I thought we should at least get a break at break-fast time. She was the Scarecrow. I used to have a zillion coveralls but I guess I gave them away? donated them? Because when I went to get them for her, they were gone! I went to no fewer than 15 stores in two counties and finally ended up buying a pair online that ended up being too short but good enough.
Emma's class also had a talent show for the parents. I came to her class and talked a little bit about my job as a ghost writer and played the piano with a blindfold. I think they were impressed until a parent came in and talked about creating coloring books. Then I was not so cool.
Macey had her Wax Museum. She was Shannon Hale and a very popular exhibit because she passed out chocolate! Her teacher, Mrs. Jarvis, told her to stop giving chocolate to the other 4th graders! She also did her state program. She had a small speaking part and did a great job with her songs and her dance. We also had lunch together after her wax museum -- Chick-Fil-E, per her request.
Molly had a puppet show and a project for Chinese class. For her puppet show she was Gretel in Hansel & Gretel. And she made a poster of sea animals and wrote all of their names down in the proper characters. I did not think she could do it, but she did an amazing job!
Phew! What a whirlwind!
