Track banquet, 3rd/4th grade musical.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Last night was Preston's track banquet as well as Hansen's class musical. I had Hansen and Lillie while Maren had Preston. My group went to Preston's track banquet for 30 minutes, then bolted to the elementary school. While at the track banquet a mom asked about if Preston had gone to the National Junior Honor Society banquet the night before. We didn't know anything about it. I wandered over to Preston and asked about it...He said, "Oh, yeah, I have the certificate in my backpack." When he signed up for the NJHS we told him that he didn't have to go to any functions about it...and we didn't! Here is his certificate:

Here is a side view of his track certificate. Preston was voted by his peers as the Outstanding 7th grade boy. A very nice honor. I can't figure out how to rotate the picture without deleting and redoing, so you just need to tilt your head to the left:)
Hansen's music performance was excellent! We Haz Jazz. Lillie wandered up to the front and sat on the floor with all the other kids that were there. She had gotten to see it at school and was very happy to get to see it a second time. Here is a picture of Hansen's section. Hansen is in the smack middle of the photo. There was one very fun scene where Hansen's group got to be on stage, dressed in black, white gloves on, and only a black light as well as music. You could only see their hands moving around, it was cool.

Next is a short video: Again, it is in HD, so if you don't click on it until you have the YouTube version pop up in a separate window, you will only see the left half of the video. This is cool, but a bit annoying to me. I may start videoing in less resolution as to make this viewing thing a bit simpler...not to mention upload times...let me know what you think.

Afterwards, we all met at McDonald's for some ice-cream! Yay for ice-cream...thanks John and Carol.

Today is a "regular" day...except for the rain.

See you tomorrow.
