Hello future readers!
Wow, have I ever been busy lately! On Tuesday our class went to see "The Nutcracker". We had to get all dressed up in our Christmas clothes. It was really groovy. Only Jason didn't think so. He didn't think he should have to wear a suit to watch some "sissy" ballet. The only part he did like was the Mouse King. (he's such a...boy!) This past Friday was the last day of school before Christmas vacation! So Miss LaSalle gave us a Christmas party!
It was outta site! We had cookies, candy and punch.
The reason that we were all dressed up again is that Friday was also the day of our Christmas concert! First Miss LaSalle, Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Johnson wished everyone a Merry Christmas, and announced the name of the songs and the classes who would be singing them.
First up was Velvet, (Crissy's cousin) from Mrs. Bertram's first grade class singing "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus". She was so cute! Crissy even played the guitar while she sang.
Then it was our turn. Mrs. Taylor whispered to us that we should remember to sing loud, but not to scream, and gave Jason a warning look not to act weird. I really don't think he would have acted dopey in front of the whole school and our parents who came to see us perform.
I think we did a super job! All that practicing was actually worth it! Even Jason with his raspy voice hit the high notes! All right!
Then it was time for Mrs. Johnson's class to sing. They sang "Silver Bells", "Angels We Have Heard On High", and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town".
I was really proud of Shante'. She told me she was a little nervous about singing in front of all those people, and she wasn't sure if she even wanted to sing. But she did, and did a dynamite job!
School was over after the concert and our parents took us home. I was really hoping there were be another Christmas dance like last year. I asked Miss LaSalle about it, and she said the teachers were thinking about having a Valentine's Day Dance, since we had a dance when we came back to school. That sounded groovy, but I was hoping to boogie to some Christmas music. Oh well. Next week is Christmas! And yesterday my mom told me that Kim and her parents are spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at our house! Far out! That means I get a sister for Christmas! Even though Kim's not my sister, since our moms are best friends, it sometimes seems like we are. And it'll be fun to have someone (besides my mom) to open presents with on Christmas morning. So the next time you hear from me, it'll be Christmas!
Until next time future readers!
