Singing and Dancing at the Arts Festival

Hey everybody! Woo hoo! I got out of school early today. We went on a field trip today and my parents chaperoned, so they checked me out at the end of the trip and we got to come home. Funny thing is I wrote a blog post on April 6th talking about how my dance company rehearsed all weekend for our upcoming performance at the Arts Festival. Well, we are performing tonight, but our school field trip today was to……wait for it……the Arts Festival! So, yes, I am going twice today. It was actually a field trip/performance by the 4th and 5th grade Honors Choir. The choir performed for the whole school this morning at 9:00 a.m. Then we left to go to the Arts Festival. Our performance wasn’t until 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, so when we got there we broke into groups and walked around to look at the art. My parents had my group, of course. We ate lunch by the pond and fed the ducks. I gave them leftover bread from my sandwich. We played in the children’s playground, went to the craft tent to make kites and plant seeds that we could take home. I chose green bean seeds. We ate Kona Ice and toured the botanical gardens and greenhouse. Finally, we made canvas paintings. After that, it was time for us to perform. Our performance was a play/musical with Broadway musicals as the theme. There are about 50 of us kids in the choir. Each of us dressed up like a character from a Broadway musical and we sang famous songs from musicals. Kids dressed up like characters from Grease; Mary Poppins; Annie; Oklahoma; Wicked; The Wizard of Oz; Cats; Thirteen; Suessical, the Musical; The Sound of Music; Dreamgirls; Hairspray; Chicago; and a few more! Guess who I dressed up as………………….

Well, I’m home now and going to take a nap. I have to go back to the Arts Festival tonight at 7:00 p.m. to dance. I am in nine numbers. I’m going to be really tired when I get home tonight. Good thing I don’t have any homework! Here are some other photos from the trip…..
