Anyway, yesterday I got to attend not one, but two terrific performances of Deer Creek Elementary's first grade school program called "Bugz!" The plot was basically this: a variety of bugs were going to attend a picnic together when all of a sudden the stink bug comes to the party giving off his unpleasant smell. What to do?? Well, the bugs decide that being nice is better than being mean, so they cover him with flowers to mask his foul odor and he is welcomed back to the picnic. All is right with the world again. In between the gripping plot line, I got to hear songs about ladybugs, picnicking, army ants, fireflies and accepting change. I give it two thumbs up! Leah and Hannah both did a great job saying their lines as well as singing the songs and performing the hand motions to go along with it. The whole thing only lasted thirty minutes, but it was well done and they were extremely proud of themselves. Mike and my dad were able to attend the evening show and brought the girls flowers for their hard work.

Hannah happy and relieved that the day was over!
I hope that they look back on the photos and video we took yesterday and see a small glimpse into their childhood at age seven: eagerness, innocence and beauty.
