Another Performance

AnnaBeth was in a play this weekend.

She had a fairly large role, and did a pretty good job. She's never done anything like this before so we really had no clue how it would turn out. I mean, we knew she had all of her lines memorized, but would she rush through them? freeze up and forget them?

The woman who directed suggested that we make sure AnnaBeth has more opportunities to perform. AnnaBeth agrees -- she had a great time up on stage.

And I doubt anyone else noticed that her socks were crooked and that she should've used sock glue (this is how Irish Dance warps your mind -- you start focussing on weird details).

How nice. It looks like Annabeth was having fun up there (and her socks look great, too). Which play did she perform?

It was one of those churchy plays: The Easter Tree. They also sang several songs with it. The songs were all done as a chorus -- no solos -- because the director's experience is that kids in 3rd-5th grade usually don't sing solos well, and then in later years refuse to try out for the high school productions because they think they're not good enough (the director is a high school teacher and has experience with kids refusing to try out due to various early traumas).
