This afternoon, both of our girls appeared in a play marking the end of a theater day camp they attended. It was great! They performed in an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
Kayla’s been on stage before, and showed all the poise and stage presence she’s capable of. She played one of Belle’s maids, had a number of lines, and even ‘MC’d’ a humorous takeoff on a gameshow in the middle of the play.
This marked Rachel’s stage debut. She played the part of Jumpy the Bear, had a couple of lines, and got to do a cool dance. One of my favorite parts of being a parent is watching each kid take on a new challenge, and have a great time doing it!
Naturally, we celebrated with a dinner out afterwards. They chose Thai food. and we were joined by proud grandparents, and our good friend Inge!
