Singing Babies

The school year is drawing to a close. The teachers and students are happy that there are only 12 days of school left. This mommy is looking forward to having the kids home for the summer. But I am also very sad. I am sad that we can't bundle up this year's teachers and take them to 1st and 5th grade with us. Mrs. I, Mrs. N, and Mrs. H have been PHENOMENAL. Our kids have learned and grown so much this year, and they have done so under the loving care of three amazing women. We couldn't be happier with our amazing teachers. They've set the bar very high for next year.

Last week, the whole kindergarten put on an end-of-the-year program. The theme was "One Big, Happy Family." The songs were all really cute and had to do with families and how children grow. My heart constricted at how hard a few of the songs would be for our new daughters to sing. But for the kids who live with loving parents, the songs were awesome. Pepper was super cute when he sang, and this song brought tears to my eyes.

Snapper has been in the 4th & 5th Grade Chorus at school this year. She had 5 performances spread out over the last few days. She earned the privilege of being a soloist this time around! She sang a duet with her buddy M. Here's the video of their song. They did fabulous! The theme of the concert was Choices. This was the grand finale song to a wonderful variety of music. Mrs. M, the music teacher at our school, is a gem!
