Emily had her Spring concert tonight. All the second grades sang four songs for us before turning it over to the third graders to play their recorders. She was so excited to sing for us. I think she was most excited about wearing the dress she has on. It is one of my old dresses. I think one of the best days of her life was when we got a box from my Mom with all of my old dresses in it. She had a little fashion show for us. This one was her favorite and she has worn it almost every Sunday since. Ms. Engquist her teacher was sitting next to us and said, "So this is the dress I've been hearing about all week!" Can you believe I wore such fancy frocks?????
Back to the important stuff....
Emily did a wonderful job. She knew all the songs and really had fun singing them. If you look close at the picture you will see some of her friends. Sophie Crawford is standing right next to her on the right. You can also see Brienna Shelton off to the left and up a row.
I have always loved Emily's voice. Watching her tonight reminded me of two other times. In kindergarten she sang a song (Moon, Moon, Moon) with her Grandpa Wilcox accompaning her on his guitar. It was precious. She also recorded a CD with her favorite songs for Dad while he was away in Egypt. It was the best Father's day present ever. I will have to dig up pics and stuff to post on the blog.
