School Play

All three of our kids were "stars" this week in their school play. Remember the classic, "Wizard of Oz"? Well, this was "Christmas in Oz" - the general storyline with a little twist. Munchkin Jonathan. Rebekah as the "Good Fairy - Glinda". Joseph as a tin man. Our friend created a little slide show with the pictures she took. I tried my hand at the scrapbook thing and posted it below this blog. Also, I captured some video of Rebekah's ballet dance - enjoy!

All the kids did an excellent job and put in a lot of hard work.

There is supposed to be a DVD of the show, so we'll have to see if that turned out . . .

Practice makes perfect

All three kids are working hard at school, not only in their studies, but also in practices each day for their Christmas play in the theater. They are so excited about it and have enjoyed everything from the costumes to the singing to the speaking role that Rebekah has. They're in a production of The Wizard of Oz with a little twist - Christmas in Oz. The directors of the school, knowing our thoughts concerning witches, changed the "good witch" into a fairy, which is Rebekah's role. I know, it's a well-known classic, but I still have a problem with the witch thing . . .. Joseph is in the group with the tin man. And Jonathan is a munchkin. The kids gave us the joy this week of hearing their Christmas song (in Spanish) and presented it to us with the hand movements and everything. If everything works correctly, it should show up below. Enjoy!
