We're On Our Way - moonshadowed
We're On Our Way
Was the title of Thomas' 1st grade celebration which took place at 7:30pm last night. We weren't too sure about going, or allowing Tom to participate, partially because he doesn't always do the whole "following directions' thing, and too, because of the lateness of the hour.... he is usually ready for bed around 8pm or so, although he has on occasion stayed up until 9:30 or later.

But he did VERY well. Of course we were lucky in one of his teachers specifically came to help prompt him and keep him on track during some of the songs.. and I also noticed some of the other kids helping Thomas out. It was really sweet to watch. There were no meltdowns..and it was a beautiful, moving program. These children have every right to feel so proud -- they did VERY well!

Some picturespam:

On stage, grinning -- he had spotted us in the audience and knew we were taking his picture.

With friends during another poem.

A rap number. We were surprised he kept the sunglasses on (like he was supposed to) the whole time!

At the end, there was another number where every child got the chance to be center stage and shine... and allow us parents to take their picture. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who had tears in my eyes.

Waiting in line after the last number to be ready for dismissal from the program. Beside him is the teacher who had come to help him stay on target. She was a bit embarrassed by the expression on her face in this one.. but hey, it had been a long program! We were glad she was there to help our boy.

More pictures from the end.

It was a great program! And Georgia did very well as an audience member! (Of course it didn't hurt that I bribed her with the promise of a lollypop when we got home if she was a good girl... hey, whatever works, I say!) :)

In that one solo Thomas photo he looks like he's delivering a standup routine about airline food.

ah heck, he looks he's saying, "I once caught a fish 'this' big!"
He looks so happy! I just wanna huggle him!

haha - the solo one reminded me of some of the gamers with the "No sh#t! There we were...." stories.
