A Great Show

We went to the school to see A perform in the school play, and was it a great show. Now I’m not objective when it comes to things involving our kids, but I really thought the kids did a nice job. I think they are not yet at the age where self-consciousness and embarrassment get in the way of really expressing yourself. You see it more in the older kids.

Either way, A had a fairly prominent part, and when her moments came, she really was a stage presence, exuding confidence and projecting her voice. It was a joy to watch, though I had the usual neurotic parental anxieties over seeing our kids perform on stage.

Best of all, A had a blast, and got to hang with her buddies at school, connecting in an area that they can all relate to. Probably, most of the kids will eventually lose their interest in drama, but for now, they had a lot of fun, and it’s something they’ll always remember.

Of course, now it’s on to the next thing, whatever that may be. Until then, thanks for reading.
