Singing in Spring Tweet 2nd May 20132/05/13 Amy's Blog Amy Hanten 0 Comments I look forward to it every year! They’ve been practicing for months and this year I knew it was going to be extra special! My daughter Ireland is in the school choir. She loves to sing! She’s been singing and dancing around the house as long as I can remember. I couldn’t believe she was going to be in 8th grade this year, and now I really can’t believe the year is coming to an end! Her final grade school spring concert was this week. I didn’t want to miss a thing so we got there plenty early. It paid off because we got a seat right up front! Too cool! There’s something so special about those grade school programs! The 4th graders learning how to read music and play a couple tunes on the recorder. Remember those? The 5th grade band, no they weren’t perfect, but still played their hearts out and the music was so sweet. And, then it was time for the choir to go on stage. They were all dressed up cute and looking their best! It was time to shine! And, they did! They did songs from each decade. Ireland and a few of her friends sang their hearts out to Pat Benetar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”. How ironic! That was one of the songs I used to love at that age. I’m treasuring these magical moments! Her eighth grade year is about to end. Graduation is in a few weeks. I have the camera ready and the Kleenex too! Can’t believe my baby will be a freshman in high school next year! Sure hope she keeps singing and dancing! I have a feeling she will! Do you have someone graduating this year? Or, someone performing in a spring concert! I love’d hearing your stories! Please share!
