Last night we got to enjoy Emma's Christmas concert, put on by the 4th and 5th graders at the elementary school. Emma was supposed to arrived a half hour early, so I took her and then scouted out some seats for the rest of the family. They arrived with about 3 minutes to spare, while I was getting looks for taking so many seats. By the time Ryan and the girls arrived, there was standing room only and I was worried I was going to have to arm wrestle for the 4 chairs covered with coats.
Emma had a speaking part, and has been attending rehearsals during lunch recess once or twice a week for the last month. Emma was "Dog #9." She did very well, enunciating unlike the 5th grader Santa.
Below is the Dog Song, taped by Ryan on our camera. I'll warn you, Miss Emma is a ham.
