Mission Accomplished!

Our much anticipated Talent Show was spectacular....well, at least that is what I heard from the audience! I, of course, saw about 7 mistakes mostly due to the kids not being able to sing with the music because of our lack of monitors. But, only someone who has every word and note of music memorized, such as myself, noticed such a thing!

Below is a picture of me backstage with #3's kindergarten teacher who did stand up comedy with a second grader. She is a hoot and totally humored me by wearing the wig!

Below is #2 with her group. The boy pictured here bought me and each of the girls in his group a bouquet of flowers! He is such a sweetie!

Below is #3 and her group at curtain call. She's right in the middle. Adorable.

Here is the end of the show and the entire cast. They were all going crazy because we dropped confetti on them during their final bow. And, when I say "dropped" I should say showered because it was everywhere! I'm guessing there will still be remnants left behind even until #3 is in fourth grade!

I received a beautiful basket with these roses, chocolates and more than 20 handmade cards from the kids. I also received very nice emails from the parents and I think that this one stuck out the most....You did an awesome job, not just of organizing the show, but of building the kids confidence and making them feel great!

Mission accomplished.

Sounds like a wonderful time, and how sweet that they honored you with the flowers and chocolate!

Congratulations on a job well done. What a great group of kids! I bet some of them will remember this experience for the rest of their lives.

Woooo HOOOOOO! So happy for you and glad to know that you got such high praise from students and parents alike. Glad it was fun too! It makes my eyebrows curl to even think of being in charge of such an event, but I am glad that there are mommies like you who do these things! And so well, too!
