She Did It!

Ella did it!  Her first leading role and she performed it like a pro.  I am beyond proud and I haven't stopped beaming since last night.  This was our school's first full production musical but you would never know it.  The kids sang their hearts out and the actors were amazing.  We did a Christian musical called The Amazing Grace Race and Ella's role was the coach.  When she said her lines, all I could imagine was her really cheering a team on to victory.

I needed this distraction (did I mention I was the drama director) and it did my heart good to have something so very positive to focus on .  Here are some picture highlights.

In conjunction with the musical, we had our first annual art show.  Our kids take art once a week and the teacher has put together an impressive portfolio for each child throughout the year.  Three art pieces from each child was displayed around the school and a judge picked the best in each grade and then an over all favorite.  Lucy won favorite Kindergarten artist.  I was very, very proud of her.  Ella did a great job with her self portrait, too.  I needed such a wonderful weekend.  I am so proud of both of my girls.

    I love love Children's Musicals! I have directed a few - I miss it - but I am in a different season right now - I pray one day God leads me back to this ministry.
