Thursday, December 12th, 5:15 pm. Visitors' Day, Tap Class.
Rosie and her class got to show off her excellent tap skills while performing to music, such as "King of New York" from the musical, "Newsies."
Same Day, 6:30 pm. Holiday Concert at School.
I was surprised to see Rosie join the chorus group to sing during the choral program. She didn't sign up for chorus, and her name wasn't in the program for chorus! What she explained to me later is that her entire class signed up for chorus and if she didn't go, she would be alone in the classroom. So she just went, and enjoyed herself!
After the concert was over, I left immediately for my dance class — it was our last practice together before (foreshadowing...) our Holiday Performance on Sunday.
Saturday, December 14, 10:30 am. Tae Kwon Do Belt Test.
We were invited to the Tae Kwon Do studio's Holiday Party on Friday afternoon, but were already feeling harried after all the driving around on Thursday. We took Friday off from all the hectic festivities, but were back on for Saturday.
There were some rough points for her test, and a bit of stress and handwringing on my part, but she did pass. Her best parts were her forms, which she performed beautifully, and the boardbreaking, shown in this video.
After the belt test and lunch (the test was over two hours!), the kids packed their suitcases for an overnight at Auntie M's. Always a fun time. It's an hour and a half drive, round trip, so by the time Monkeyrotica and I arrived home, there was just enough time for us to get showered, primped, and coiffed for...
Same day, 6 pm. Company Holiday Party.
I was the designated driver, since I needed to be sharp for the dance performance the next day...
Sunday, 1 pm. Dance Studio Holiday Program.
