This week is our crazy week. The kids get out from school in 7 days, but this is the week that they have all their concerts and other going ons. All grades are due in by Friday. Then, next week is the fun week, field trip to the movies, field day, assemblies for good grades, etc.
Last night was Emily's drama production. They did 6 mini plays and skits. Emily played Katrina Van Tassel from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. They had to read lines in class and the teacher assigned parts. Emily was basically the lead girl for this part of the production. I couldn't believe it. Our shy little Emily who wouldn't talk got a lead part in a play.
They rehearsed every day at school during class, so we didn't go over lines much at home. But, Emily had quit a few lines to memorize and she did great.
Here she is before we left. She is looking so grown up. Sigh...
And with her favorite person.
We sat in the second row, so I was able to get a few decent pics. I took a little video, but it didn't turn out great. But, I did buy a copy of the DVD, so I should have that in the next week. I'll get it on Youtube once I get it.
Emily was the love interest of both the boys she was sitting between.
We are so proud of her for her hard work and performance. She also had a heck of time finishing all her reading requirements this quarter. She had to read 3 books over the weekend and take quizzes on all of them yesterday. She worked so hard this weekend and got it all done.
This year was a huge change for her with a new school and all honors academic classes and she did so well. She's become so much more confident and has grown into such a beautiful young lady.
