A Night On Broadway

It doesn't matter what our children do, it's going to cost us money.  And since my daughter is all about acting, I support her no matter what.  She is also in choir.  That one hasn't cost us a whole lot...yet...but it costs money.  Most recently, the choirs and drama put together "A Night on Broadway." Kristin's choir did, "A Hard Knock Life" from "Little Orphan Annie."  The teacher wanted the girls to look the part. 

I think he needed to tell them to google orphans of Annie....
Most of them looked more like they were cleaning the house rather than orphans from the 1930's.  Now for the most authentic...

First, I bought a (very sturdy) romper at the thrift store and we ripped it. I sewed some patches on it.  Then the next day we....
dragged it on the ground
Rubbed it in the dirt, and rocks--this thing was TOUGH
Jumped on it
Beat it
Even rode a bike over it!!

And what did the finished product look like? Well....
And who looks most orphan like?
That's right...Kristin!  Boo-Yah!
