Maggie’s school Christmas show was this past Thursday, December 15. She was so excited as she got to be a Lightening Bug, dressed all in yellow (fun to try to find in December!) and got to carry a flashlight. The show was at the high school’s auditorium and she got to be backstage with her friend Ainslie before the show. Rocky & I took turns entertaining, or trying to entertain, Jessie while we waited for the show to start. Next year, we’re getting a babysitter for Jessie!
It was an adorable little program and very well done. All of the kids were different kinds of bugs and ,if I followed the story correctly, the lightening bugs saved the day by getting the Christmas tree to light after the Termites ate it.
It turned into a long evening and right after the Kindergartens big number, I think Maggie was done. A big kid took her spot on the riser and she had to be in the front. The show was at 6:30, and we only had a snack, not supper, before. After, Maggie told us that she was kind of nervous and that’s why she was upset. We told her it was okay to be nervous before a show and that Dad gets nervous sometimes before he has to teach a class.
We went to Applebee’s after and Maggie just barely made it through supper without falling asleep!
