Proud Mommy Moments: Something To Sing About

The first time I heard her sing, I nearly cried.  She was only 2.  She sang a Primary song.  It wasn't just cute.  It was perfectly pitched.  I am sure I have it on video some where.  She has always sung.  And her singing, in my unbiased opinion, is a gift from God.  I have spent years telling her so.  This year, she finally had the courage to put herself out there.  She auditioned for the Spring Musical Production of Thoroughly Modern Millie.  Sadly, she was not cast.  But she is a freshmen.  And she kept on truckin' saying she would tryout for ensemble.

Now fast forward, where she puts herself out there again for a solo part in the Women's Ensemble performance.  Not chosen?  Is her choir teacher tone deaf?  Or he is on the take with some other parent?  (He is part of the Spring Production too!)  But she still holds her head high and reminds me she is trying out for ensemble for the play.  All right!   You go girl!  The day after the auditions, the cast is posted.  I told her to text me right away.  She did.
All her hard work and perseverance paid off!  And I am so proud of her!  You go Kristin!!!

And a bonus one, I just got this morning...Ryan showed me this morning.  He completed the next level of his rainbow reading!!! Woot.  Now he is on level 3.  You go Ryan!

I am participating with EmmyMom and Kmama and their Proud Mommy Moments!!!

Yea!! So glad she didn't give up and kept trying- and yes I really do think the older kids get preference.
