Simple Pleasures (AKA Best Shot Monday)


My son’s school is in the midst of getting ready for their annual musical performance.  Each grade, K-5, will have their own performance.  It’s a really big deal.  So big that it will be held off campus at a theater that seats 999.  It’s at the end of February so about twice a week, each grade has practice and my job is to take candid, random shots of these practices (how cool is that?!) to be shown in a slideshow at the performance All the kids are really great, but my favorite group to watch is the kindergartners.  They’ve never done this before and watching their eager little faces as they try so hard to follow along with the dance teacher is priceless.  They’re not the most coordinated group of kids and that’s what makes them even that much more sweet.  Trust me: they’re going to bring down the house on performance night, guaranteed.  Who wouldn’t love that?

Have a superb Monday, everyone!

    I remember watching my little sister’s tap/ballet recitals, and those little ones are the BEST!!! I can’t wait until it’s my daughter up there. 🙂 You can totally see their enthusiasm in this shot, even from behind.

    I love watching kids perform for the first time. My son had a holiday show at his school this year, and his class was the youngest. It was so fun!
