Proud To Be An American!

Kolby had a 1st Grade Musical Production at his school last night.  The theme was "America".  It was filled with songs about America, information on the things are symbolic to our country (the flag, Statue of Liberty, The White House) and information on specific presidents.  It was wonderful to watch, and I even got a bit teary eyed at the beginning.  I don't know if it was just seeing Kolby up there, performing, or if it was a feeling of pride for our country.  Maybe a bit of both.

Here are a few pictures we took.  First up, the girls, as we waited for the program to start.

 Then the boys (minus Kolby, who was waiting with his class before the program started)


We had a few minutes (as they were tweaking the stereo system) to take pictures of the kids.  Here is Kolby, getting ready to sing and speak his part.


Kolby memorizes things very well.  This was his part that he said:

The important thing about Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was that he was the 32nd President.
He was born in New York.
He was in a wheel chair.
He was president during World War II.
But the important thing about Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was that he was the 32nd President.

Way to go Kolby!  We loved watching you give your performance.  You smiled and grooved every time a new song started, and we could all tell you really enjoyed yourself.  Thanks for letting us be part of the night!
