Nolan's class is practicing for their graduation ceremony coming up at the end of April. This year's graduation has a patriotic theme. Yesterday, we were there for 3 hours and during that time, they got in about 45 minutes of practice. The rest of the time was spent waiting on parents/kids to show up, herding chickens (I mean, kids), getting into costumes, and the most fun of all ... hiding in an interior bathroom waiting for severe thunderstorms (with a tornado watch) to pass over. But the kids were real troopers through it all.
The next practice will be a grueling 4 hours, and parents have been asked to send them with a snack and LEAVE. I know the director wants to whip them into shape without the distraction of parents and siblings hanging around. This is serious business for five-year olds!
Lest you think I was kidding about Nolan being the class clown, I have a small slide show from yesterday. He kept his classmates thoroughly entertained. But to his credit, he knew his part perfectly. I promised the director that I'll make sure he is sufficiently bribed to behave like an angel on stage for the real thing! I'm thinking there is a new Webkin in Nolan's future.
Click on the "Funny Faces" Picaso slide show to the left to see photos of his silliness. Below is a very short clip of Nolan singing "God Bless America".
