M's Very First Time at the Mic (One to Remember)

Hey, y'all. Hope everyone's having a good week.

My little one is still with my in-laws, so the house has been unusually quiet. While this was my first official week off from work, I did kinda go to work this week.  I attended two days of training for my district.  It wasn't training we had to attend, but they paid you if you did.  Being paid to learn is usually not something I'll turn down, so I was there. Plus I walked away with some great tools I can use in my classroom next year.  Win-win.

We've got air conditioning now.  We were fine for a few days without it -- that is, until it reached 90 degrees up in here. DK had a guy come out yesterday evening who saved us from melting.  I always get so nervous that one of these tech guys will come out one day and say, "Your system is dying.  You need a new one."  Thankfully that has yet to happen.

So, remember I told y'all that M had her preschool program last week?  And that her, um, "performance" was one to remember?  Well, I have the proof on video.  

She takes over the mic (which is already bad), but I didn't notice until we watched the video at home that she discreetly moves one of her friends out of the way so that she could have better access to the mic. *sigh*

Watch:


Yeah, we've got some things to talk about. I hope that kid's parents didn't notice that little move.  I'm proud of M's confidence -- no doubt -- but we've gotta make her aware that this was not just HER moment.  (This may be our punishment for not yet giving this child a playmate at home.  Sheesh!)

On a brighter note, the program was so adorable and the kids did GREAT. Here is some of what they did:
  • Pledge of Allegiance
  • Pledge to the Christian flag
  • Pledge to the Holy Bible
  • Books of the Bible 
  • The 10 Commandments
  • The Beatitudes
  • Nicene Creed and the Lord's Prayer in English AND Latin (the five year-olds, not M's class)
  • States and Capitals
  • US Presidents
  • Phonics
  • Planets
  • Recitation of a few scriptures
They did a few songs for us, too, including this adorable one:


I know videos like these will mean more and more as the years go by.  I thought I would cry at this little program, but I didn't.  Probably because M's not one of the kids heading to kindergarten in the fall (she doesn't turn five until December).  I can't believe we only have a year of preschool left. :(

Anyhoo, just wanted to share.  I know my dad will get a kick out of that first video...I'll be waiting for his call. :)

Be back soon, folks!

Love,
G

Edited to Add: I took a few pics, too:



Cake and punch afterwards!
