I am months behind in keeping up with the blog. Sitting down now at the end of September, I am realizing that I have to go back to talk about things that happened in May! Yikes.
Well, next on the list of things that happened months ago is Stella's spring performances. This year it was a Disney theme and they sang different Disney songs while looking a tiny bit like Minnie Mouse. Stella had so many opportunities to perform that it got crazy at one point. She loved it though. She had a solo during "Hi-Ho," which was always my favorite five seconds of the performance. Because, well, everyone thinks their kid is the best, and I am not ashamed to tell you that my kid was the best of all the kids.
We had to put her hair in curlers for each show, and get her all dolled up. I took these pictures one day when we had a few extra minutes before showtime.
This was her "parking lot" performance. It was a tricky one because the sun was setting right in her pretty little face. But she was a trooper.
The next show where I brought my good camera along was to Wheeler Farm. Heidi and Wyn came all the way from Idaho for this one. It was very hot, and our little star got so thirsty! Thankfully she was on the side of the stage that was in the shade, because some of the other performers were not so lucky. Whew!
Stella loved all her performances this spring. It was fun, but man, I don't know how anyone would handle this if they had more kids. It is really time-consuming for a couple of weeks of your life. But of course we are now back for another year. Stella had the summer off but she is already back in the studio learning her Christmas songs. She loves it every week and I am so proud of our little star.
