She stopped sucking her thumb after 7+ years of it just this month. The dentist is thrilled. Me? I'm a little sad.
She's now in a 2nd grade reading group.
She has her life all planned out. Her goal is to be either a teacher, a scientist, or an artist. (go scientist, go scientist!)
Last night we had the privilege of seeing her perform in her school choral concert.
Here are a few clips for you to enjoy:
Here are my thoughts on the evening (in case you cared one little bit):
- Thank you Lord that it was only 1 class performing this year. Memories of last year's 2-grade-performance still give me the vapours.
- The singing and speaking abilities improve with age. The song choices, however, do not.
- Parents who don't bring their children to a school recital when their children have solos or speaking parts should receive some sort of punishment.
- I never want to be a grade school music teacher (see #3)
- My daughter is a Glockenspiel extraordinaire (a real-world skill, no doubt).
- My daughter likes to make sure all the other kids do it right.
- Second grade dances look an awful lot like the "hokey pokey."
- Yes, I know that Claire isn't in the last movie clip. That little boy was SO DARN CUTE. I had to include it.
On the way home last night, Claire informed us that she "loved doing that and wished it (the recital) weren't over."
If she could figure out a way to be a teacher/scientist/artist/stage performer, we'd be set.
