With my daughter in her first year of JK we were treated to our first ever school Christmas concert tonight. In what can only be described as an act of mercy, they split the event by grade so as not to, ahem, overwhelm the audience with the entire student body.
What we did get to see was our daughter recite five poems (some vaguely seasonal, some utterly nonsensensical), but fun none-the-less. It’s the type of thing no sane human being would enjoy if it weren’t for the fact that their kid is up there yelling their heart out. Almost in unison with the rest of the kids. Or in some cases, no where near it.
Really, the best you can hope for is that there’s no tears and no one wets themselves, so in that regard I think tonight was a complete success.
