Last night we went to the school's Kindergarten Snow Show. As I sat there watching my little boy sing and act out the words, I had a lump in my throat. I was so extremely proud of him and the fact that this is the beginning of a whole new world for him. The maturing from a little toddler to a big school boy....there's something magical about their first school concert isn't there?
So be prepared for quite a few pics and a little video, I know it may seem like much but I just couldn't stop snapping photos and I know that the family is dying to see him. Nicholas is especially excited about Vovo (grandpa) in South Africa seeing that he can sing just like him. :)
After the show, they were all lined up so the parents could pick them, but of course there were a few straggler kindergarteners just wandering around LOL My son was one of course LOL
One of the really sweet things the kindergarteners do every year, is make Christmas Cards for the Luke AFB Airmen that are currently deployed and will not be home for the holidays.
The teachers supply all the materials and cookies to eat after the Snow Show and the kids get to make the cards and write whatever they want. Nicholas did this ALL on his own, he asked me how to spell "can't" and "sorry" but everything else he did alone, right down to his backwards G, and it makes me so proud of him. It brought tears to my eyes when I read the card.....it says:
I am sorry that you can't go home
And here's Jasmine's card, again, it makes me so proud of my kids. I think being a military family they are fully aware of what it means for a soldier to be away, Jasmine especially since she's been through it before when daddy was overseas during Christmas and New year's.
It was a great night, we enjoyed the children singing and seeing how happy they were up on stage. As with all 5 year olds, they started waving to their mommies and daddies and shouting out "I love you" LOL
It was so cute.
Here is Nicholas with his classroom's snowman, each class made one and put it up on the wall. he is pointing to his photo.
