Emmie's Spring Recital

 I had so much fun accompanying Emmie's Kindergarten class on the piano while they performed for their Spring Medley.  They sang several songs about the things they have learned this year "Money, Money Money, I always want money...!"  "Magnet song"  "Turkey Song"  "Autumn Leaves"  "Columbus Song"  "Martin Luther King song,"  etc.  Most of them had piano accompaniment, but some were just chants, or were accompanied by a CD.
 The kids helped decorate the big banner behind them.  Each flower has a hand drawn face of each student.
 Here Emmie is with her two friends, Kate and Dylan
 This trio sang a song about Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria. They colored their own shirts! I liked that Emmie chose purple (I didn't have any influence over that...honest!)

It was one of those special mommy moments I will always remember.  Each rehearsal was so fun for me to be a part of. The kids were so proud to sing their songs and wear their personally decorated outfits.  It was a surprise for all the parents to see how hard they had worked.  The class presented me with flowers at the end of the concert.  Thanks for letting me be a part of your special show Emmie!  You knew every word and sang out beautifully. I love you!
Here is the link to watch the finale song of her program.  It was Emmie's favorite song that she would sing at all hours of the day.  Our whole family memorized the chorus!

Apple Picking!

We tried out Apple Picking this year, and loved it!  The kids got a kick out of climbing our shoulders to pick apples.  Claire mostly liked walking around picking up the rotten apples on the ground! They also played in the big pumpkin patch, and haystack.
