Day 11.335: Winter Concert - take 1

The girls had their first Winter Concert performance tonight. We are going tomorrow - I hope it goes as well as they say it went today. Here they are looking fancy, happy and tired after they got home:

Day 11.334: The dark parade

Here are some more of my pictures from Saturday night. I'm too tired for anything else even though tonight was the one day out of seven with no performance (the girls had a rehearsal for their concert that is tomorrow and Wednesday nights).

Day 11.333: Land of the Misfit Toys

It was performance day again today. Here is Exile #3 hamming it up in one of her three roles - as the rather snooty mother of the trendy girls:


I took on the videography again - and now I get to see what I can produce with what I managed to capture!

Day 11.332 Parade of Lights

E5N1 had his second and final play performance followed by a cast party. Meanwhile Exile #3 and I were at the dance studio to prepare for the Parade of Lights. She was rehearsing and making props and supervising the little dancers, while I was helping decorate the truck and get the sound system ready.

In the end I rode in the truck with the amplifier, but I was not needed to keep the sound going, instead I sat in the back - on this extremely cold night and took some photos and video:

Day 11.331: Opening night

E5N1's second performance of the week, was the first running of the one act play "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever". It was really impressive all around and our little thespian did a great job!

He gets to do it once more for a matinee performance tomorrow although I will probably be elsewhere for another seasonal event. There's never a dull moment!

Day 11.330: Performance #1


This was the first piece performed by E5N1 and the rest of the 6th Grade Concert Band this evening, but that is not the reason for the blog post title, rather it an observation that one or more of the kids have performances on six out of seven days starting today. Here we go!

Day 11.329: I hate to spoil a surprise...

...but this is what we are buying for all our UK friends and family this year. We'll be pulled over "importing" them at UK customs for sure:



Or maybe not.
