well, way back before it was even spring, eliza had her first ever concert.
it was the kindergarten, first and second grade classes all together. complete with homemade costumes, lots of singing, rhyming verse, a real stage…it was wonderful. classic. a real group effort.
the whole event (like so much of the school) is relaxed. families stay together until right before the concert, then they all head up to the stage. this is one example of how this school (maybe without it even being intentional) cuts down on the sit-and-be-quiet-in-a-separate-room-while-you-wait time. i recognize i might be projecting here, but it is something i notice and appreciate so much.
when the concert was over, we continued to hum “be a lady” while we ate cookies…everyone is asked to bring some to share. a “cookie potluck” as eliza says.
how fun it was to be in a real concert with long time church friend, keria!
on the way home we picked up eliza’s very first banana split.
she reports that the cookies were way better.
