Get in the Game

Last Thursday evening was a milestone for my precious child. It was the last school production of her elementary school career. Nana and Boppy came to join in this momentous occasion (Davey was working). There may or may not have been tears. Or at least thoughts of them because, y'all, my baby is growing up.

I'll grant that I am thoroughly enjoying this age (with the exception of the 'tween hormone swings) because she's so grown up, can hold deep and/or intricate conversations and always - ALWAYS - makes me laugh. But I do miss the days of baby Taylor, toddler Taylor, preschool Taylor and even the Taylor of last year.

Nevertheless, she is growing up. So I've just got to get in the game....

...which was also the title of the 4th grade school musical...
First we got a taste of the super recorder playing skills the kiddos have honed over the past two years.
And then it was time for some singing and dancing - two things I am always ready to witness.
Each class was dressed in different sporting attire. Tay's class donned bowling shirts (ironic given our recent adventures in bowling) for the festivities and performed a rousing rendition of a song I'd never heard before. I can assure you it was awesome, though.
Below you'll find Tay's friend, Kevin. He's from Ireland and was in the States for this year only as his dad's been working in the area. She really liked Kevin (and the candy he brought back from Ireland after the holidays) a lot. He played the part of the "snobby golfer" and Tay thought it was hilarious that he didn't even have to act because his accent "did all the work for him."
It was a lot of fun to watch Miss Serious cut loose and dance with her friends....
Soon she'll be walking out of Woodway Elementary School for the last time...
But we decided not to dwell on those thoughts....
...and had dinner at Chuy's instead. I know my days of having an elementary school aged child are severely numbers but she is amazing and I am so blessed to be her mom. So we'll deal with intermediate school in August. For now, I'm just enjoying my girl. :-)

Adorable! I didn't realize the golfer kid had an authentic accent. We were talking about it after the performance that he pulled off that acting REALLY well! ;) Taylor and all the 4th graders did a fantastic job! I love the pic of her walking down the hallway.
