My sweet girl had her first Christmas concert.
We have been just amazed at how well preschool has been agreeing with her. She goes in with a smile every day, and always relates something that they did that day. As opposed to O., who would usually only report what the snack of the day was in preschool, and still needs to be pumped for information other than what literacy station he was assigned.
"Mrs. Barb helped us paint a star today."
"We went on a hayride right in our parking lot. And we picked a pumpkin and Mrs. Sandy wrote our names on it and then the tractor picked us up right here!"
"Well, we read a story about the Gingerbread Man. He said run, run fast as you can. Can't get me. Then that fox ate him. Guess he didn't hear him."
"We made a house with our whole family in it!"
They've been working on the songs for their Christmas program ever since they started going to chapel in October. N. would never sing the actual songs for me, but identified which ones they were singing when she heard them on CD at home. So, I knew we could expect Away in a Manger, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
Here are a few (low quality) photos from the event.
Here she's doing the hand motions to the sweetest little song:
"Does the Baby Need a Blanket?" with the refrain "I've got a blanket I'll share..."
Even though her teacher asked them all to wave to their family at the beginning of the concert to get it out of their systems, N. just couldn't stop checking in with us.
