Frame A Day '12: Week 15: 4/8-4/14
April 12--Life's a Happy Song--Trust is in her school's variety show tomorrow night. Since she started at the school, she has wanted to be in the show, but since she doesn't really have a talent that fits on a stage, it hasn't worked out for her...until now! This year, the PTO decided to have an act where anyone who wanted to be in the show could do so. Music to my kid's ears...sign her up! Today was the dress rehearsal (although I don't think all the kids are dressed) and I managed to get photos that are likely to be better than what I will get tomorrow night. Her number is the finale, and it's to "Life's a Happy Song" from the recent Muppet Movie. They will sing it to the fifth graders sitting on risers near the front of the stage.
April 13--A Million Reasons to Love the Kids' School--The variety show was tonight. Every year the teachers open the show with a "surprise" act. The act usually goes along with the theme. This year's theme focused around the fact that the kids collectively have independently read over one million minutes since February 2011 and there were lots of allusions to a million of this or that with the introduction of each group. What I love about this photo is it captures the collegiality, friendship and fun that the teachers share among one another and with the kids. This school is awesome.
