Major brag about my dd

My dd is finishing up Kinder. and today they performed "The Three Piggy Opera" for the parents, friends, and families on the school stage in the auditorium. Basically, the class sang the whole story. They also explained the different parts of a opera - and these are kindergarteners!! Megan was the narrator. She actually read 4 pages of text. I was sooooo proud of her. She was smiley, confident, unphased by the fact that she was on a stage with lights on with probably 50 people watching her, and she really enjoyed it. Afterwords I had many parents compliment me on what a terrific job she did. It wasn't just the polite "oh she did such a nice job". They were genuine compliments and amazement. One of them even told me they thought the voice was a professional recording until they took a second look at the podium (it was hard to see her because she was so tiny compared to the podium). Another one said she did a better job than they could have. I am sooooo proud of her. She did a great job and really had fun! The teacher did a great job with all the kids. The little boy who played the wolf was hysterical and the three little pigs were cute as could be. All the kids had their lines and songs down and really seemed to enjoy the whole experience. After the show we had a "cast party" where there were cookies and punch for everyone. There were three centerpieces - a tiny bale of hay with balloons attached to it, a bunch of twigs with balloons attached to it, and a few bricks with balloons attached. One of the mom's put that together. What a fun time for everyone! A memory to last forever!!!

Wow! You did it with preschoolers!!! Hats off to you!! That must have been quite a feat. We took pictures AND video. Dh was able to get away from work to see it so he took stills and I took video. We gave one of her teachers a picture of the whole class as they started to bow (faces were still visible)as an end of the year present.
